Was having trouble burning 8 speed Dual Layer DVD's on my NEC 4570. It would just eject them so I decided to use this. It would not install the .Bin file I had so I used a .exe file instead and crossed my fingers. The program acts a bit loopy, but I could see it was doing something. After a restart the System Profiler showed the Firmware Update had been applied. All good so far, next, the acid test. It burned the 8 speed Dl's just fine. Amazing.

NecFlashX cannot handle spaces in the path to the application. Does not recognize my NEC 3520A in a firewire case, even though System Profiler does. Poor grammar and spelling ("closes the 'hole' application").

great utility. I managed to update the firmware on my NEC3520A no problem. The biggest problem was finding a bin flash file that was NOT part of a windoze exe!

Any OS X already has a PHP interpreter as far as I know. In any case, I didn't install one, and it worked great.

MacRob, you don't need to look for a Mac file. Just use the original exe file and it will work fine!

JellyLab, sounds more like you need PatchBurn - that's what I needed to get burning working with my 2510A.

What's a PHP interpreter, where exactly do I get one, and is it easy to install?
Thanks

Is it not within the BSD subsystem ?
I dont install any other PHP software, only the bsd subsystem and it worked perfect.
