TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

TDK 1616n 2.79 = NEC ND-3500 2.18 (same strategies) with auto DVD-ROM bitsetting for SL.

* 279.bin (Official Firmware Upgrade from TDK Europe, Autobitsets DVD+R/+RW to DVD-ROM, Supports DVD+R9 DVD-ROM Bitsetting, Supports Ritek/Ricoh/Philips DL media)
http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/tm.asp?m=80060

Seems that NEC 2.18 Liggy, 2.18 Liggy SE and present/future beta are more interesting...

Re: TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

It's all on the firmware page where I made a 3500 original firmware table and a 3500 modified firmware table, because the one table was growing to hard... Please check if i didn't make any mistakes

Re: TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

I don't think this fw supports auto SL bitsetting... I just run a compare.. and the only thing that is different is the version number... =)

Re: TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

Usually only the 2.C* version of TDK firmware supports SL bitsetting

Re: TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

I can confirm this.

I flashed "Nec 2.79 RPC" provided by Quikee2 and I can't change the bitsetting for DVD+R and DVD+RW with Binflash v1.02 (Liggy).
Because a flash from 218btrpc1 binflash reported default bitsetting DVDROM for DVD+R and DVD+RW. (Ofcourse after setting it with binflash)
But if I use reset (to reset the bitset counter to 500) it will show DVD+R and DVD+RW as default for bitsetting/book type.
Setting the bit/book type for DVD+R DL works.

I think ScorpioSoft should update this on his page.

BTW: Thank you all for a great forum, this has been very educational.
Special thanks to Liggy, Quikee2, ScorpioSoft and others for their great work!!!

Re: TDK 1616n 2.79 is out

Ok, but be aware, too much flash is not so recommended : the flash memory of burners have sometimes limitations...

Excuase my ignorance, but you maybe can enlighten me...
We know for sure that flash memory can withstand at least 500 flashes (ie. booktype changes).
And some member with better insight even state flash memory can be written more then 10.000 times.

I have had days flashing my drive 6-7 times.
My warranty was voided the day I got the drive and I´m well aware any damage will be on my cost.

No reference, some post reading (i remember a NEC that crash after 3 f/w updates...), it was just to put a little light or shadow over it...
