    Like the title says, will I damage my writer if I use the offical firmware from NEC on my OEM drive?

    I have version 2.15 firmware in my NEC writer.
    Has anyone updated their writer with success with the offical update?

    In the readme file that comes with the zip file, it says,

    "this Update works only with NEC ND-2510A (retail&bulk), not with OEM releases.
    (OEM means part of a full PC package or external USB/FireWire variant of this burner)
    For OEM products contact your dealer, distributior or manufacturer of PC/ USB package.

    -You can only update from Firmwareversion 2.15.
    (you can verify firmware with NERO Info Tool: http://www.nero.com)"

    Thanks for any hellp.

    Well, looks like I've answered my own question!

    I took the leap and installed the 2.16 firmware from the NEC Portal by Herrie and now, have my first succesful Dual Layer backup.

    The only downside is that the burn took 39 minutes to write 7.30GB @ 2.4X, I hope 4X Dual Layer media is due out soon.
