Your OS is reporting TDK 1616n because you used the TDK firmware, you should use the TDK -> NEC firmware, look at the first page for details :
Um, so in other words use the second file in the attachment, the png, instead of the first one? I basically just unpacked and ran the first file, the rar.
EDIT: Oh, a png is a picture ! I knew that !
quote:Well, I don't have any burned DL to test with. But I would really expect that to be contingent upon the burn quality, and even with a good burned +R9 disc I wouldn't expect the same results as with a -ROM.
BTW can you please tell me what were your reading results regarding DVD+DL media (I don't mean DVD-ROM DL "CSS or not" , but recorded DL media like Verbatim and Ritek)?
Because mine can only start at 2x and a Max of 4x ( so a 7Giga disc takes 30 min to rip ) :(.
Well that's strange!
Just open the RAR, extract the bin file, and open it with an Hex editor (don't change a thing) and search for "TDK" string. If you manage to found one okay you have in fact a TDK firmware, and in that case simply try to download the file again and repeat the procedure, because something is wrong!
If no TDK string is found, search again but this time "NEC" if it's okay try to upgrade your firmware again.
