Being an mechanically inclined individual I have disassembled numerous CD and/or DVD Drives and understand the physical mechanical operation and to a limited extent the electrical/electronic operation of numerous manufacturers CD/DVD Drives and fail to see how any CD/DVD Burner Firmware can override the drawer tray slide physical mechanical mechanism stop to make the drawer tray slide mechanical mechanism extend out any further. The only way a CD and/or DVD Drive a drawer tray can be made to extend any further is to adjust the drawer tray slide physical mechanical mechanism stop to allow further travel.
I donâ€™t believe that their special â€˜Modifiedâ€™ firmware does anything to actually push the drawer tray out any further than any Official Pioneer Firmware does. I believe in order to obtain further drawer tray extension that they actually disassemble the Drive and slightly adjust the drawer tray slide mechanical mechanism limit switch to allow further travel of the drawer tray to obtain slightly more drawer tray extension.
Call me hard headed but personally I donâ€™t believe what some â€œTech Supportâ€ phone answerer states â€“ In short in my book no special â€˜Modifiedâ€™ Firmware is somehow magically going to circumvent and override a physical mechanical mechanism stop.
Perhaps one of the Forum â€œFirmware Modifiersâ€ can thoroughly dissect one of the below Perimera Technology modified â€œPioneerâ€ Firmwares and compare them to Official Pioneer Firmwares and actually see if there is some magic Firmware coding that allows additional Drive drawer tray slide extension.
