    If anyone has the original 500A_10f.exe Firmware Upgrade I would appreciate it if you could E-mail me with the file as an attachment. I installed the 500A_20f.exe Upgrade and now have a problem. DVD-R's that I originally could write at 2X will now only write at 1X, real pain in the ...
    and Sony Tech support won't respond to my E-mails. Please send to both my e-mail address so that I am sure to get the file.
    Thanks,

    Sony keeps all their firmware in the same place, you just have to know the name...

    Try this link for 1.0G:

    1.0 F:

    and even D:

    Let me know if it works, I've had coasters with CloneCD since my 2.0F update... I didn't know you could downgrade the firmware, but I'll try also.

    Best, Mendel

    I think you can downgrade your firmware to an older edition. Before youupgrade, you should check the statistics usually supplied with the firmware stating compatibilites and writing speeds.

    Thardy, dont state your email addresses as there are always spammers looking for easy pickings._X_X_X_X_X_[small]He who Asks for Nothing, Shall Never be Dissapointed![/small]
