Well, NEC and some people say that NEC2500 and 2510A are hardware identical but with different laser power calibration, dunno what to believe, for sure several people who tested NEC2500A->2510A had good results

Ok, so I might as well get the 2500, is the 2500D the same as the 2500A?

Thanks for the help,
Joe

Q1: Is AOpen's DRW8800AAN same hardware as NEC2500A ?
Viewed from AOpen's webpage, both drives look like twin in
appearance and specification.

Q2: If so, can DRW8800AAN be flashed to hacked NEC2500A->2510A
BIOS ?

Q3: If so again, what is the best BIOS ? the hacked 2500A BIOS or
HP520n one ? I mean considering SL and DL DVD+R/DVD+RW
Bitsetting capability, wide 4X DVD5 DVD-R compatibility, without
panel LED flashing and tray open problem.

Mainly I have been using slower Pioneer A04 burner and excellent
LiteOn 166S reader to backup DVD movie titles, over 200 more
done. Most titles are backup by using two DVD5 -R media. You know
the splitting procedure takes skill and much time. Recently, I'm
considering to upgrade my DVD burning. The burner options are first
the cheapest AOpen one, genuine NEC 2500A, or waiting NEC2510A,
or the promising Pioneer A08 ? All the local media sellers here
suggest not using BenQ, Philips, and LiteOn drive and +R media for
movie backup.

Thanks in advance for your kind responding.

Yes the AOpen can flashed to NEC2510A (with 2500A ID) by using Herrie's DOS flasher. You can also backup the AOpen firmware and return the drive back to its original state if you wish to. Which firmware you should use is a good question, the latest from Herrie will do the job just fine, without any problem and with the media tweaks from Herrie

Interesting, doesn't work either with DVD-R or DVD+R media? If so probably your drive is broken

thanks for helping, i'm reading as much as i can on this drive and it's capabilities, but i might have got in over my head with an oem device, i'm under the impression that nero or roxie is absolutely necessary for using this device, correct?....sorry if thats an obvious "duh" question...anyway, emporer, thanks again...i'm sure i'll be in and out of here, to learn more

Yes you need a DVD authoring software to burn DVD media, Nero/Roxio or CopyToDVD!
