On the official download page of Mad Dog:
http://www.maddogmultimedia.com/support/drivers.asp

only the 2.FD self-extracting firmware is available
on top of older versions such as: 2.F9 and 2.FA which I have used in the past

Is there any reason why they took away the 2.FC version thant I am using at the moment on my NEC 3500 retail drive ?
Is it recommended for me to upgrade to 2.FD ?

Does this new 2.FD version as usual only improve the writing strategies and add more media ?

I have a NEC DVD RW ND-3500 AG (Futitsu-Siemens PC).

@HayArms, i think that the 2.Cx series won't come back in life, TDK Signapore also seems to supply the 2.7A series

That's a pity

And I imagine that there's no way to set Booktype (temporary or permanent) for DVD+R with 2.7A :(

Bye

Too bad!

Have they a different hardware? Did someone compared the 3500 and 3520 bioses to see if enhancements to the 3520, such as DVD error analisys capability, can be adapted to the 3500?

(I hope this is the proper forum)
I have a 3500AG with the 2.19 firmware. I just gout a bunch of new CDR media (admittedly really cheep) media. They say on the package 1x-52x, but the drive only allows 8x & 16x. I would like to know two things:

1 – How does it come up with this … it cant possibly have a table for every brand and type of media? (a link to another thread/doc would be acceptable.)

2 – I would like to try higher speeds for this specific media and see what results I get, but if I flash a firmware that allows any speed for any media, I will obviously loose the feature to auto-detect proper burn speeds for other media. Is there any way for me to hack the firmware myself to allow higher speeds just for this media? (I have a lot of computer and programming skills … just never done anything with firmware before.) Alternately, is there a firmware that would allow me to turn the write speed limits on and off without re-flashing every time?

Thanks to all the firmware Gurus in advance.

It has a table of ATIP and Lead-In information for identifiying CD-R discs. =)
There is no firmware that will allow any speed for any media.. it's imposible to make one for Nec... also Nec firmware hacking is not a piece of cake and you have to know quite a bit about the firmware before trying anything.

I would really like to understand all this better ... particulatrly how the drive identifies CDR media, and what aspects of writing that can affect. Any suggestions of where I can go for such information? (I have extensive computer experience, but this is a new area for me.)
