This burner has done great burning cdr, dvd+/-r, dvd+/-rw. I have also received an error when burning a disk like the one below. Nothing is written to the disk when I received this error. I closed the door and rewrite with no problem.

I believe this player has a problem sometimes with recognition between dvd-r(w) and cd-r(w)s. I have will get mixed results with cdrs, first burns at 24x, next at 4x, etc... Updated firmware and that issue remains.

the sony dru510a is still the best, use nero,region free,
this is better than the new sony 530 its the same .
it similar to 510a all that is different 4x, 8x
the new drives has backward technology.where can you find a
dvdplayer to play 8x ?.impossible it dosent exist yet.be smart consumers dont spend money on new drives its the thing has the old drives.

Excellent writer and reader. Have tried various name brand DVD-R/W and DVD+R/W, as well as CD-R/W's, and haven't experienced any problems with the drive. I bought the drive from NewEgg.com for $160, but have discovered it's not readily available any longer through many resellers.

New Firmware; No Problems so far...


Comments posted by Damian from Other, January 12, 2004. Rated this writer 8 of 10.





Had the drive a couple of weeks. Got it because I needed the black bezel- looks great. No need for any software. XP pro SP1 recognised and installed immediately. Using Nero 6 which appears to do everything possible with the drive.
However the date on my drive is stamped as 3/10/03 version 'BA'. I don't know how to tell what firmware version is installed, so I don't know whether to upgrade to the version '1d' What is the difference between a DRU-510AK and 510A ? Do I already have the latest version? Also if I downloaded and tried the Sony speed optimiser thingy would it conflict with Nero? All I can say is that it works great out of the box. The only thing you can fault this burner on is it's clanky eject mechanism!

Tough to compare since this ismy 1st and only burner, but:
1. Installed very easily.
2. DVD X Copy to backup commercial CD's worked 1st try no problem, with great results.
3. Have not updated the firmware, it is 1.0c Jun27 ,2003.
4. Written to Fuji DVD+RW many times, always works, looks great on TV.
5. Have burned 8 Fuji DVD+R no coasters.
6. Using DVD-Lab to author/burn my home movies.

It was a little more expensive, but worth it to have it work right out of the box and NO PROBLEMS at all.
Note to other newbies: It took something like an hour to format the DVD+RW before the first time I burned to it. Didn't know if it was DVD-Lab or the burner or my PC, but it was just 1st time format of a +RW. Re-uses takes just a few seconds to "delete" the info on it before an over-write.

Works like a charm!!! easy installation. i put it in my computer and it worked right away without any installation neccesary. burned every single movie/game i backed up so far successfully (knock on wood) even with the crap media......except for one particular movie which i wasted a few dvds on, but it was most likely a one time thing since it had an error at the same spot. other than that, this writer works great. i HIGHLY recommend this.

Man, am I lost! Got this burner for Christmas, loaded both Record Now and MyDVD, and neither lets me burn DVD's. What software should I be using to burn??? I have AVI's and MPEG's on my hard drive that I want to turn to DVD.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

This is an awesome writer, I have burned well over 8000 dvd's. (dont ask) and have had very minimal bad discs. I have used 4X,2x Memorex, 1x,2x compusa, 2x fuji all have worked great. I did upgrade my firmware off the bat and am using DSS (Drive Speed Selector)provided free by sony.
I use dvd shrink 2.3 and copy to dvd. or if i am duplicating one I already have I use Nero and burn on the fly. This is one of the best investments I have made.

I got my Sony DRU510A yesterday at staples for $120 after a $30 rebate. XP home recognized it instantly. Have had zero problems burning to tdk dvd+rw, and the disks are flawless when played on my philips home player. I've been using DVD Shrink and the included RecordNow DX burning software.

I think this drive is worth an extra $20 or so over cheaper drives that people seem to have a ton of problems with.

Got this today at Office Depot for $109 after rebates. I was able to successfully burn a movie on Compusa 2.4x DVD+RW and watch it in my JVC standalone DVD player. No flashing of the firmware was required (may be I have the latest). The process was simple and straight forward enough for me to achieve first pass success. Thank you guys for your comments.

Very happy with this burner. I have burned about 25 disks Memorex dvd-r (CMS) and Memorex dvd+r (richo) and it has worked flawlessly. 5 stars.

I love this drive. Works flawlessly at 2.4x with DVD+R's. I have not tried 4x media as of yet or DVD-R's. I just got this a few days ago and I have burned 25 DVD's flawlessly so far. I have been using Philips 2.4x DVD+r's made by CMC. I Know all you may say CMC is crap but as people have reported on here the Philips CMC media is good.
