I have just discovered that my Optiarc AD-7200A has stopped allowing me to bit set DVD+R discs. I flashed it with the official 1.09 firmware from Optiarc’s site in December and I presume that this is the cause and it has just taken me a while to notice. But it could have happened recently and be unrelated to the firmware change? I have tried re-flashing again in PIO mode but it has made no difference. What has me puzzled is the status message “Command version 2. Default settings remaining: 499.”, I am sure it wasn’t there before. Any ideas?
Edit: There is probably no connection, but it also wrote the disc (Verbatim MCC004) at only 4x rather than 8x as selected.
