Nero [from V6 onwards] has the ability to detect a drives capabilites automatically - called SmartDetect. Previous versions relied on a database of drives and their capabilities, things like Mt Rainier support, the ability to do DAO/96 etc.
In V188.8.131.52 the Pioneer DVR-111D is not fully supported. It works fine, it gives me the options for TAO and DAO but not DAO/96 for example. I was wondering if Ahead had issued an update to allow new dirves to be fully supported.
I seem to remember that 184.108.40.206 was not much more than 220.127.116.11 with more drives supported. I guess with SmartDetect it probably isn't worth their while, whereas with 5.5 all drives needed to be explicitly supported.
Here is a list of supported Pioneer drives, and the version that they were entered into Nero's drive database.
I'd like to know what version the DVR-111D is 'supported since', and I'd really like to stick with V6.6 hence the question about a drive database upgrade for it. There may be one out there, I just can't find it on the Ahead site.
