I intend to buy the 7173-S drive due to the decreasing number of onbard IDE channels, and would like to know if Liggy or any other Firmware moder :bow: will do an auto- bitsetting Firmware for this drive or if there is one.


I never release auto-bitsetting firmwares. I prefer the ability to manually choose which booktype a drive should use.


so, do you have plans to release modified firmware for the 7173-S?
Your “firmwaresupport” is the selling point for me.
Or does the drive has manual bitsetting?


Once I have a 7173S firmware and find some time, I guess I will also create a bitsetting firmware.

It will probably allow manually changing the booktype of DVD+R-DL discs - just like any other NEC drive.
