For the owners of IoData DVR-ABN16A (NEC3520)

A new firmware has been released
It has the latest startegy version already available and I think it still supports bitsetting

The download link needs the serial number, so only owners of that burner can dl it

i believe even though it is labeled 1.00 that it really is v1.25.

Too bad we need a serial number though…


#6

oops
i was wrong…
it is indeed 1.25!


#7

I suggest to look at this one instead…updated more frequent :stuck_out_tongue:

#8

the change log:

it seems to say something about dvd-rw only
using babelfish to translate it sounded like this:

Concerning the problem which has the case where it cannot eliminate the DVD-RW media, correction measure.


#9

Can somebody please send me this firmware to nec3500@chello.nl. Thanks!


#10

sent to u guys alredi:D


#11

Sounds like they fixed a problem with erasing DVD-RW media to me… if you replace eliminate with erase that would certainly make sense. Have to love translations, eh? hehehe


#12

Anybody flashed this yet?
Are we sure this supports bitsetting or are we just assuming since 1.24 did?
The way NEC’s numbering works, shouldn’t this mean there is a 1.05 out there?
Maybe we will see a LD1.25 Beta soon.

@Scorpiosoft
Why did you remove the 1/12/05 v1.04 from your site?


#13

Which one was that? I don’t have a firmware overhere with that date. If you have such a firmware please send it to me. You can find the e-mail address above.


#14

It was the one from this thread: http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/tm.asp?m=93724&mpage=1&#94895

Thats where I first found it at least, and a few others have reported having it. I am almost certain I saw it on your site 2 or 3 days ago as the 6th version, but I do not see it any more.

Maybe I was dreaming…

EDIT: I am certain I was not dreaming because at the same time I got the file 3520Ritek.zip from you site too, which is no longer there. I think your site has reverted back in time…


#15

jamesrb, the firmware (1/12/05) can now be found on my page. Thanks!


#16

When you click on the link you get a Polish site :confused:
When paste and copy the written link it’s not there :confused:

[EDIT] Post from sevenka have been removed by moderator :bow: This user was spamming every thread with spam links!


#17

Any idea what’s new in that version? The right strategies are the same as in version 5.


#18

I hope you don’t mind if I remove the link from your quote. Although keeping the forum clean usually is not my job, I decided to better take action, before every thread is spammed.


#19

I downloaded a copy of Ritek.bin but don’t know how to use it. I have a cake box of Ritek G04s rated at 16x that show a write speed of 4x, and average out at 8x at best on Nero 6.606 transfer tests. Iwas hoping the Ritek.bin might speed things up.


#20

what are the full list media supporteb by fw v1.25 ? and how long time burn dvd+r at 8x in fw v1.25 ?
