Hi, apologies for repeating this no doubt frequently seen Noob question.
Im running an OEM NEC2510a firmware 2.1, and OS is Win XP home SP2.
I have been advised to update firmware to 2.16 to ensure optimum disk compatability (ANV Ritek 8xDVD-R). Ive never done this before, but figure if Im going to do it I might as well flash it to RPC 1 and remove riplock. (esp as the official NEC site claims the new firmware is incompatable with my OEM drive
I have located a (Beta) windows flasher from the Dangerous brothers to do this job. (link found on this very site)
Do I need to update using the original 2.16 firmware, then again with the rip lock patch, or will the rip lock version install 2.16., then again with RPC1 patch
I have uninstalled Easy Media creator to remove packet writing software. Is it now as simple as using end it all to close running apps and clicking the relevent exe. file (Some people advise removing all external USB devices, unplugging additional drives etc).
Any advice would be gratefully recieved.
