Ricoh Japan warns MP5125A users not to use 8x DVD+R media


Ricoh Japan announced that is currently develops a new firmware allowing Ricoh MP5125A to burn on 8x DVD+R media. The company recommends users not to use such media before upgrading to the newer firmware.

Ricoh plans to release 8X DVD+R media by the end of December.

The 1-4x and 1-8x DVD+R and 1-4x writing speed DVD+RW media are intented for next generation DVD+R/+RW drives. Such media was not initially developed to be used on "first" and "second generation" drives, which offer a maximum writing speed of 2.4x. Using the new media on these drives could lead to read or write errors, as the drive does not correctly recognize the 1-4x or 1-8x disc.

Such media was not initially developed to be used on "first" and "second generation" drives, which offer a maximum writing speed of 2.4x. Using the new media on these drives could lead to read or write errors, as the drive does not correctly recognize the 1-4x or 1-8x disc.

However, it should be possible for users of such "first" and "second generation" drives to use most of these new discs without any problems, provided that a simple firmware upgrade has been installed into the drive.

After the new firmware is applied, you will be able to write to the new media at your drives maximum writing speed of 2.4x. In this respect, the new media will work in the same way as the 2.4x media you were accustomed to. Of course, when the upgrade is installed you can still use 2.4x media.
