I just downloaded the 1.0g firmware update for the DRU-500A. In the instructions it says to off DMA, no problem, i know how. But it also says to uninstall DLA, packet writhing software, etc. What programs would qualify? Currently here are all burning/dvd related programs i have installed: Veritas RecordNow, SOnic My DVD, DVDXCopy, DVD2VI, Alcohol 120%, nero 188.8.131.52,IFOedit,VOBedit,VOBrator,vStripMaestro,DVDDecryptor,Smartstripper. I think that's all of them. Which of these (if any) would I have to un-install before i flash my firmware? Also, is there any problems with 1.0g? I have 1.0d right now (thought I changed it to 1.0f but it must not have updated it right). The reason I want to update is to get the 2x write compatability on some Ritek discs i just got (DVD-R). Thanks for your help.
