#1

I just got my 109 from BigPockets. It had some info sheets with it, as you might expect. Nothing new.

BUT… There is a “supplemental information” sheet which says

OLD VERSION:
. Dual Layer DVD-R – 2x, 4x
. Double Layer DVD+R – 2.4x, 4x

(arrow on sheet to…)

NEW VERSION:
. Dual Layer DVD-R – 2x, 4x, 6x
. Double Layer DVD+R – 2.4x, 4x, 6x

(The BOLD text is on their sheet)

Comments here please!

Official FW version history

I don’t think you have completely read it :slight_smile:

[i]The drive will offer DVD-R Dual Layer compatibility through a firmware upgrade once the DVD-R Dual Layer specification has been officially approved by the DVD Forum. The write speed for selected DVD-R Dual Layer and +R Double Layer media types can also be increased to 6X through this firmware upgrade.

The +RW Alliance is now finalising the +RW 8X format and the product can be enhanced to support this media through a firmware upgrade once the +RW 8X specification has been officially approved by the +RW Alliance.
[/i]

What you got there is just an info sheet on a firmware upgrade, man :wink: Simply put: Your drive came with the upgraded firmware version that supports 6X DL speed.

Bought my Pio in February, Same leafleet was included, I think the 6X DL for both +/- are planned since a whille but anyway better have too much info than too little :iagree:

Out the box with 1.17 and now 1.40 nero info tools shows DL for both -/+
