yes the DW-U10a is the OEM version of the DRU-500, and sony doesn't offer support on the drive, so you won't find any mention of it at the sony sites.

there is a way to change your drive into a DRU500 enabling you to recieve online support/update, but it requires 'flashing' the firmware.

click here for some info.
