I' still have a 116D burner in my macintosh (and happy with it, no need for special functions, etc), and I'm considering buying a 216D (that I can found easily in Europe) for my pc...
The problem is that I need a booktype firmware (and that is not a problem with MSCE), AND a dvd-ram support (used in my video recorder, very practical)...
I've heard that "216" version was able to write on dvdram, so I was wondering if it was possible to crossflash 216D in 216 (is ther any physical difference ?), and, if yes, how ? (because pioneer flasher refuses to flash 116 with 116 firmware for exemple)
Is there any special tool for pioneer flasher (like nocheck tsdwin for tsst ) ?
Thank you in advance for any answer !
Edit : I've also heard about problems with ICH9/10 and AHCI mode... My motherboard is a gigabyte GA-X38-DS5 with Intel X38 and ICH9R chipsets, running in ahci mode. Should I have to consider using the additional sata controller (made by jmicron) ?
