I have a Pioneer BDR-206DBK that has been sitting on a shelf for about 7 months. I thought it had failed because even though it could write at its specified speeds, it was reading really slow, about 2X.
I bought a replacement BDR-208DBK which worked fine till a few days ago when it exhibited the same problem. I updated the firmware on the 208 and the problem went away. Great!
Now I am wondering if I can update the firmware on the 206 to fix the same problem. The firmware in the 206 is 1.56 (really 1.05 that is misreported, a known bug). The latest firmware for the 206 is 1.06
Because of the misnumbering, 1.06 will not let me update 1.56 to 1.06
Will DVRFLASH or any other utility allow me to get around this roadblock? Has anyone found another fix for the slow read problem with the BDR-206DBK?
