Do you know which is the latest firmware for a NEC ND1300A DVD writer ? I would like to know if a new one is available.
Thanks :wink:

If it’s out, you’ll probably find it here.

I’ve hacked the NEC 1.05 f/w in order to make it work with DVD-R’s manufactured by Princo (1-4x). They will burn at 2x now (instead of giving an “Illegal Medium Error”)! Other media might work now too maybe!

After a tip from YoAnn I started working on support for currently unsupported discs :slight_smile:

I added a number of media codes (by replacing certain “future media” like RITEKG08 etc).

This needed to be done in a special way and took me quite some time. I think everyone will be pleased with the results!

My LEADDATA01 started to work with this method, so possible others will work too!

Support for the following media codes has been added:

SKC Co Ltd. (@2x)
LONGTEN TECH (@4x)
GSC001 (@2x)
UTJG01001 (@2x)
" " (6 times space) (@4x)
CMC MAG.AF01 (@4x)

Support for the following discs can be added also, but in that case I need to remove support for discs that are currently in the shops (LGE, OPTODISC, LD and TDKG010000d9 could be used for this :)) In case you’re interested, drop me a PM with the media code you would like to add and which one to replace and mailaddress, so I can make it for you!
Possibly supported media (only on request)

You can download the new version below:

All please test and post your results!

CDMANIA, I’ve tried your link, but it doesn’t seem to work.

I you would be as kind as to post it again or send it to me,
I’d be mighty obliged.

Wow. I’m re-visiting this thread 5 years later…

Has anyone modified this firmware to enable use of newer media?

I bought a stack of blank DVD’s, only to discover that they are 16X - and the NEC doesn’t like them. :frowning:

Sorry but after 5 years you should get a new drive.
