    Smile Sony Firmware Questions

    I purchased a Sony DRX-710 UL external burner.

    As I do not know much about this whole firmware scene, I have 3 questions:

    1. When I upgraded my firmware to BYX5, my computer now tells me that the burner is now named DRU-710A.
    What caused this change of names?? Is that good or bad?

    2. Do folks consider this to be a good or bad burner. (It has worked well for me, for about a year now.)

    3. I'd like to know more about this whole firmware subject. I keep coming across words like flashing and crossflashing. Could someone kindly point me to a link whare I can read up on this. Something like "Firmware for dummies"
    Thanks in advance. J

    shouldn't be an issue, just better media support and burning

    not one of the better burners but not bad one either

    The important part for this burner is it's not a sony but a liteon

    and the latest liteon firmware is a little newer

    they are considered some of the best scanner/readers just can't burn good
    unless you count the fact they burn cmc mags as good as verbatim and TY's
    which seems impossible
