emperor -> TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 2:06:21 PM)

An anonymous friend, sent us the today's v2.C8 SE TDK 1616n released firmware with the NEC ND-3500AG ID changed, which contains all the following "improvements":

a) Support for TraxData (Ritek D01) and Ricoh DVD+R DL at 4X (official firmware supports only 2.4X, not yet tested!)
b) RPC1 (Region Free)
c) Riplock Removed (7X MAX DVD Ripping with CSS DVD-Video DL and 12X with SL Discs)

The firmware will Auto Booktype settings to DVD-ROM for DVD+R & DVD+R DL respectively (feature embedded)

Thanks to the anonymous friend!
Does this firmware also support Auto Booktype settings to DVD-ROM for DVD+R & DVD+R DL respectively?




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 3:29:03 PM)

Fonske -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 3:31:50 PM)

At emperor
Thanks for the fast reply!
Next time i reboot my PC, this will my next firmware.




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 4:13:30 PM)

Test the firmware and tell us how it goes!




eros -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 5:14:22 PM)

Small question: Is it really necessary to reboot after a firmware flash in Windows? I can see that the drive already shows the new firmware (in Winflash and in Nero). Will the drive not work untill reboot?
Thanks.

I have testet the new firmware and i find it very nice...

ps: how can i add pics i have no webspace...sorry for offtopic... but i have a nero dvd image an couldnt show it...

the nero speed test shows a high peak at 3,5gb to ~3,8gb 12x an decrease (noname 4x+r)

and ther is no booktype setting fpr dvd+rw but now firmware out there supportet +rw bitsetting...




eros -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/6/2004 6:33:10 PM)

When I check the burning sped capabilities in Nero 6.6 , without a CD, I see these available speeds:
x1, x2, x2.4, x3, x4, x5, x6 and Maximum. Is the way it's supposed to be without a CD? I have no x16 media to test if this changes with a CD. My current media , Precisa x4 , can only be burned at x2.
Ia this related to this specific firmware, or do all firmwares of the NEC 3500 behave this way?




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 1:55:14 AM)

Its advised to reboot after every flash, even will work without reboot...As for recording speeds, it should show 2X/4X/8X/12X/16X i don't know if the problem comes from Nero




fjorger -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 5:30:20 AM)

Just one feature missing :(

DVD+R DL reading is limited to 4x MAX, would it be possible to remove it? Like it was done with DVDROM DL CSS disc's?

Regards,

FJorgeR.




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 8:47:12 AM)

FJorgeR, no this feature is not possible, at least not yet...[&:][8|]




HayArms -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 2:29:54 PM)

Here my stupid question! :)

If this firmware is an Official TDK firmware why it isn't yet released on the TDK Singapore Website?

It's only delay in updating the firmware page or whatever else?

Thanks

EDIT: I mean the standard 2.C8 firmware version , not the SE edition




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 4:26:27 PM)

HayArms, supposed to be, it released over hardwarezone.com forums from TDK Signapore person so...




Russ_64 -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 4:30:05 PM)

I just flashed with this new SE version (was on Mad Dog TDB 2.F8 before) and it works great.
Ripped a DVD at 12x and its RPC1.

Just one thing - Binflash won't let me access the Booktype settings, is this because it is Auto to DVD-Rom ?




emperor -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 4:43:16 PM)

hi Russ_64 and welcome to our forums,

Thanks for your test results!

Yes since the firmware auto-bitsets the DVD-ROM booktype, the binflash cannot change this




revenant -> RE: TDK 1616n v2.C8 SE -> NEC ND-3500A v2.C8 SE release! (10/7/2004 10:19:09 PM)

I spend my whole afternoon trying to decide myself between Pioneer 107 and NEC ND-3500a and I think NEC is better because of the firmware stuff. Now my little question: What is the better firmware TDK or MADDOG???
