In wrestling with the Idea of which DVD drive to get, (as most do)
a Sony DRU500A (Multi-DVD+/-) drive???$$$
Or a PIONEER DVR-105 (DVD-) much cheaper$$$
I ran across this firmware flashing site...Looks VERY interesting.
http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

Only things that have to be asked after I get one is....
Do I want to take the chance of voiding the waranty, and/or frying the new drive???

OR....suck it up, get the guts...and unlock the potential of it!
MMMMMMMMMMMMM...

I have used the region free 2 x all hack on my A05 with great results, it is great to be able to write 1x media @ 2x but a word of warning, it is dependant on the quality of the media, I am using Princo 1x (branded as Shintaro in Aust) and have not had any problems.

Hi urban tec,
Yup, I noticed that there was a "can" or "can`t" burn at a specific speed
(or not work at all) list on that site, for just about every DVD Writer out there.

Glad to hear you got yours "Unlocked and Loaded!"...
