A few days ago, I updated the firmware of my NEC ND-2500 to the latest MadDog release. Unfortunately, this firmware does not properly support my DVD+Rs (POMS media code). So the only available writing speed was 2,4x.
I opened the firmware with a hex editor and - as expected - could not find the media code. Consequently, I reverted back to Herrie’s beta5 firmware which supports them @8x max.
The conclusion is simple: All discs which are not directly supported by the firmware are recorded at a minimum speed with a default strategy.
Since the firmware support of NEC is lousy (IMHO ;-), I assume that many new media won’t work correctly.
Now would it be possible to modify the firmware and unlock at least 4x writing as default speed for unsupported media?
Thanks in advance for your help!
