I just worked on Beta 9a of the booktype firmware. This version is based on HP 420i 1.24 firmware I implemented the +R writing strategies from the 1.06 NEC 2500A firmware.
Problem with Beta 9 causing “Power Calibration Error” on all DVD-R media at all speeds should be solved now
The problems with most DVD-R’s which should work @ 8x only working @ 6x should be fixed now! Most common 4x DVD+R’s and 4x DVD-R’s should work @ 8x now!
For DVD-R the FUJIFILM03 strategy is used, for DVD+R the PHILIPS 081 strategy!
Added support for the following discs:
OPTODISCOR8 8x DVD+R @ 8x
OPTODISCOP4 4x DVD+RW @ 4x
OPTODISCK001 4x DVD-R @ 8x
OPTODISCR04 4x DVD-R @ 8x
I also added a version identifier after several requests
Have fun testing!
