First I have to say this is my first post ever, so be patient with me
Iâ€™ve been reading through your forum for a long time now, but since I hadnâ€™t been connected to the web, I decided not to post until I can be online more often than once a week. And now Iâ€™m online at home.
Iâ€™d like to add that I really appreciate the work of all of you. Itâ€™s a very informative and interesting place you set up here!!
Also, the people are all nice (which isnâ€™t the same in other forumsâ€¦especially to newbies) and really trying to help.
Also a big Thanks to Herrie, you did a great jobâ€¦. I love your work!!
So, after all: (My first) question:
I am recording my media (mostly VERBATIM and RICOH) with my good-old Nec 2510 (the real one, not the patched 2500).
I have been using the 2.16 fw from Herrie a long time now and was quite happy with it. After a few months being offline, I discovered that many new firmware versions have been released. After searching through the posts I found those: (from the list of ScorpioSoft)
NEC ND-2510A 2.17 RPC1 and Rip Speed Firmware (TDB)
NEC ND-2510A 2.F8 (from Mad Dog 2.F8), Ritek DL support, SL & DL bitsetting but no RPC1
NEC ND-2510A 2.F8 (from Mad Dog 2.F8), Ritek DL support, SL & DL bitsetting, Riplock removed and RPC1
NEC ND-2510A 2.F8 Quikee2 Beta3 (from Mad Dog 2.F8), Ritek DL support, SL & DL bitsetting, Riplock removed and RPCÂ´
NEC ND-2510A 1.33 RPC1 and Rip Speed Firmware (from HP Writer 420n)
NEC ND-25x0A 2.18 v3 Final Test 2 (Herrie)
What version would you recommend concerning the writing quality, especially with the above mentioned media?
Bitsetting would be nice, RPC-1 and removed riplock are not necessary, since I have an AOPEN 1648 for ripping (damn fastâ€¦)
