I'm new to this forum, it seems really good...first of all sorry for my english, I'm italian!
I wanted to know how to update my nec 6500a firmware wich a newer/better one...
I explain my situation.
I flashed it with a modified version which had speed improvements and regional lock toggled, this is the readme to make you understand:
"NEC ND-6500A 2.40 RPC1 and Rip Speed Firmware
README.TXT This file
6500ORIG.EXE Original version as supplied
6500FAST.EXE 6100@6500 and Rip Lock Patches
6500RPC1.EXE RPC1, 6100@6500 and Rip Lock Patches
6100@6500 allows the firmware to work on a 6100A drive if you have one.
Rip Lock removes the speed locks on single and dual layer DVD-ROM discs
with a VIDEO_TS directory.
RPC1 removes region state handling commands and checks.
An RPC1 firmware defeats the internal counters within the drive and
removes region enforcement. This only is HALF of the equation. You
need to use DVD Genie or similar software to control your player
Flashing these firmwares requires some risk on your part. If you are not
comfortable with this please do not proceed. We cannot guarantee they will
work or flash correctly in any environment out of our control.
The flasher works in Windows.
Close down all your applications and CD/DVD burning software, especially
things like DirectCD, Drag to Disc and InCD.
Run the flasher with the desired firmware and patch.
Select the drive to be flashed.
When the flashing completes click Quit.
Restart your system.

I flashed it with this as soon as I have bought it so don't really know what I had before and how it worked...anyway now my nec has booktype it seems(nero can change it) but many disks are not written good and I have to write them slowly or to great supports to make them readable anywhere, otherwise only the nec reads them good.
I wanted to know which firmware should I use and which is the newer one..thanks!Sorry for my long post!!
To see this screenshot of DvdInfoPro I've made, please click on it with right button, choose save as... and it will work. It doesn't work neither in this way in firefox, it's a problem of unrecognized refer.
