I had my NEC2500a now for about a week and finally got to this great info forum
I of course tried the latest firmwares for the NEC including Herries b7/8/9a and the new HP 1.27.
Yesterday after flashing the HP 1.27 I wanted to try bitsetting on my +RW (RICOHJPNW11) with DVDinfo, but the all that happened were strange clicking noises of the NEC and then DVDinfo hang and couldn't even get stop with the processmanager. Strangely enough, after restarting the system the +RW seemed to have the DVD-ROM bitsetting. Same thing happens when I tried to use Nero for bitsetting It just hangs, after a restart all is ok.
I then tried it with the Herries beta9a and the same things happened.
Also, I since noticed this clicking noise every second when the media was inserted.
After flashing the stock firmware back everything is normal again, except no bitsetting and no faster burning speeds
Do you guys really think that this clicking is not harmful for this device? And what did I do wrong while bitsetting?
Also with the HP 1.27 firmware I got a powercalibration error while eraseing the +RW.
Thank you very much,
