Liggy and Dee FW 2.1A for NEC 3500



Liggy and Dee FW for 3500 2.1A released! :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:


but not realy with speed incresing, like dee´s firmware or iam wrong?


Thank you! :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:


2.1A BT is Liggy’s firmware. The speed hacked 2.TE will be some time yet as the there is so much new in this firmware, the speed patches need a re-write.



Would you be so kind as to make a version of 2.1A with bitsetting and RPC1, but with the riplock intact? I sometimes use my 3500 to play movies and I never use it for ripping, so I like the riplock.



use nero drivespeed

i lower my drive to 5x or 1x and i dont hear it :wink:



What can I say that has not already been said-eh?

Thank you so very much-



I flashed the Fast version of the original NEC firmware 2.1a found at Liggy’s and Dee’s firmware page, but the drive still reads slow my rw dvd discs.
I use them a lot lately. Is there anything I can do for this?

4X is the speed for RWs. They cannot be oversped or else the media gets damaged beyond use.


Media type DVD RW is locked at 8x read speed. There is nothing we can do about that. The ND-3540A can read DVD RW at 13x. So far the ND-3540 is the fastest drive available for reading DVD RW media.


Ok, I understand.

By the way, thank you for making a fast version of the firmware.


This is an old thread! I think Dee has a newer FW!
