Wow. Thanks for your hard work supporting a not-so-new drive!
I flashed the new fw onto my 2510A and had no trouble setting booktype etc. I definitely appreciated the absence of riplock.
I do notice that with the Ritek D01 +R DL media, I now have a choice. I can burn to completion with ImgBurn under either 2A5C or 205D. But with 2A5C, the verify always chokes right on the layer break; with 205D, it hangs in until 97-98%
I know that Ritek media have a dubious reputation lately, and that Verbatims are preferred (I have some on order)...but the behavior is reproducible, so the difference seems to be in the firmware.
So, is this new 2A5C fw intended to support the D01s? Any idea why the difference in verify behavior compared to the 205d? It's all somewhat academic for me, since I'm burning dvd-video and the discs appear to play fine (both layers) on my OPPO standalone regardless...though I doubt I'd trust these media with crucial backups.
