DVD-RAM Driver Download

The usual "I take no responsibility" is also applied here.

But neither does LG.

Don't link the files directly on places other than this thread. I monitor the server usage and I'll move them to another location if it seems abused too much.

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

Hello, I'm entirely new to this board, so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong spot.

I've just downloaded the DVD-RAM Driver and I have a question about it.

The DVD-RAM I'm trying to format is 4.7GB, but when I go to format it, I'm only offered 2.33GB as an option. Does anyone know why this would be?

The DVD-RAM drive is a Pioneer, originally from my G4 (circa 2000). I've upgraded the Mac, and installed the DVD-RAM drive into a PC running WinXP.

XP reads CDs just fine in this drive, but when I inserted the 4.7GB RAM disk, it gave me an I/O error, which is why I wound up on this forum, downloading the DVD-RAM Driver software.

Thanks for any tips about getting the software/OS to see the real capacity of the DVD-RAM disk.

Pionerr made DVD-RAM drives ?! wow, never heard of this one before.

Suposedly if it's really a pioneer (and not a rebadged Matsushita), it sounds like your drive only supports DVD-RAM v.1.0. Such drive only supports discs of 2.5G capacity per side not the new DVD-RAM 2.0 4.7G/side discs.

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

DVDRAM_WinXP.exe is a newer release than DVDRAM_WinXP_English.zip

Does anyone choose to use this Matsushita package rather than Ahead's InCD when given that option and if so why?

In the manual, UDF 1.5 is recommened for PC data and UDF 2.0 for video recording. InCD recommends 1.50 for CD-RW and DVD+RW but 2.00 for DVD-RAM (and also likewise offers 1.02 and FAT32 but additionally 2.01 and 2.50). So it seems the folks at Ahead, like me, think it is easier to format DVD-RAM with 2.0 so they can be used for both video recording and PC data. Is there any disadvantage to UDF 2.0 if Mac compatibility is not required (presumably built-in compatibility as opposed to with third-party drivers similar to Windows)?

What is the purpose of "Real Time Files" and "Metadata Partition" from the later standard specs?

UDF 1.02: first release; primarily useful for read-only media like DVD-ROM.
UDF 1.50: includes defect management, useful for CD-R and CD-RW.
UDF 2.00: adds support for Stream Files, Access Control Lists, and power calibration.
UDF 2.01: adds support for Real Time Files.
UDF 2.50: adds Metadata Partition.

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

I've been searching for information about the different udf formats myself.

power calibration: a little bit more of the disk is reserved so that the recorders can adjust the laser strenght here before recording the data ?
Access Control Lists: digital rights management ?
Real Time Files: for tv set-top dvd recorders ?
Metadata Partition: faster directories ?

Kenshin: when I snap on the English or executable links I get this message:

Which problem is that? There are a few discussed above? Were you looking for a Win98SE DVD-RAM driver?

Yes, long ago, perhaps in 2004. (Also last updated very long ago.)

Try any of the above.

Can't say they are latest releases as they were updated quite long time ago.

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

Hi Kenshin

Just tried to download a couple of the English XP drivers (the second and last ones in your list)...got an error "Internet Explorer cannot download <driver>. The Connection with the server was reset."

Thanks in advance if you can shed any light on it!

Edit: I tried in Firefox too, so I don't think it's an IE problem

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

I've allowed access to this folder on the server.
To see all the files in this directory just click here

In here you'll find the above DVD-RAM drivers with XP64 added as well.
Latest firmware for the 4165B and 4167B with RPC1 and autoreset versions as well.

And finally the files needed to convert a 4165B to 4167B.
With Firmware for drives and Prolific 3507 controller.

Hopefully the file names are self explanatory to what they are.
Any suggestions or updates needed give me a yell.

Thanks again for hosting. If it ever becomes needed, just speak up and they can be found a new home.

Is the 4167B firmware a hacked fw? If so which is it based on. I'm using DL12 right now.

Re: DVD-RAM Driver Download

The RPC1 and Autoreset Firmwares are from the infamous Chemical Bro's and are based on DL12
DL13 is included but I havn't gotten the 2 hacked FW's yet.
