LD Firmware Mini FAQ

Q: Which NEC firmware is LD firmware based on?
A: This firmware is based on Liggys Bitsetting NEC ND-3500AG 2.18 firmware with riplock removed and RPC1.

Q: How do i flash my drive with this firmware?
A: The firmware is now bundled with Liggys Binflash
Unzip then run the package, now click on the FLASH button. The firmware will now be uploaded onto your drive, when completed you will be prompted to restart your PC.

Q: What are the risks of flashing my drive with this firmware?
A: Great care has been taken to make sure your drive is not damaged in any way by using this firmware. However, you flash your drive with this firmware at your own risk. Neither I, Liggy, or cdfreaks will be held responsible if your drive or media is damaged in any way.

Q: Will flashing my drive with this firmware void my guarantee?
A: Yes, flashing your drive with any unofficial firmware will null your guarantee. If something should go wrong with your drive, you should buy a new one and not RMA the drive.

Q: Why do i not get good results when i burn media on the modified media list at MAX speed?
A: This is largely down to the quality of your media. If the speedups don’t give you good results. Set the burn speed lower. This firmware will give good results at the stated stock firmware speed, without having to flash back to a stock firmware.

Q: What about media not on the modified media list?
A: All media both SL and DL not listed in the modified media table use the default NEC STOCK write strategies and speeds. If you don’t get the results you expect with media not in the modified list, this is a limitation of the media or drive, not this firmware.

Q: How do i set SL bitsetting for +R media?
A: Run the supplied Binflash application. Click on the BOOKTYPE button and then the SL +R tab, change this to booktype DVD-ROM then click on APPLY. This setting is stored and does not need to be run again, unless you wish to change the booktype back to +R

Q: How do i use DL +R bitsetting?
A: Run the supplied Binflash application. Click on the BOOKTYPE button and then the DL +R tab, change this to booktype DVD-ROM then click on APPLY. This setting is stored and does not need to be run again, unless you wish to change the booktype back to DL +R

Note
A few people have reported a problem with BOOKTYPE (DVD-ROM ) while burning a DVD+R9 (DL) disc with 2.18 firmware.
You are advised to switch on BOOKTYPE DVD-ROM in your burning software before burning a DL disc then switch it back off for SL +R discs.

Submitting test results
Please state the LD firmware version used for the burn, the media type (MID code) and the burn speed.

If possible burn a disc with NERO CD-DVD Speed (create data disc) and save the burn screenshot by clicking on the disc icon at the top of the window.

Also submit a (data transfer test) Using the ND-3500, again saving the screenshot from CD-DVD Speed

Disc Quality scans can be submitted with (Liteon drives) using K-Probe @4X scan speed or CD-DVD Speed (disc quality) @4X scan speed.

If scanning with a Benq drive. use CD-DVD Speed (disc Quality) @8X scan speed.

Dee;

What is the writing strategy fot TDK TTG02?, have you modified this TTG02? if not, do have any plan to do so?. The disc is design for 8X speed writing and can’t be written even at 12X. Thanks in advance for replay. BTW: At present I am using LD V1.4FAST


#9

Hello…I Just flashed using this firmware…but the MXL RG02 media which says is updated to 12x, still claims 4x? Any help with this…?

Thanks.

Best wishes

#11

Oops a slight error in the firmware prevented 12X burn speed.
I’ve fixed it and it should be fine now. You’ll need to download the file again and reflash your drive.
I’m not sure MXL RG02 will make 12X, it may be better trying one at 8X first.

@TCAS

Q: What about media not on the modified media list?
A: All media both SL and DL not listed in the modified media table use the default NEC STOCK write strategies and speeds. If you don’t get the results you expect with media not in the modified list, this is a limitation of the media or drive, not this firmware.

This media can be looked at in the next beta.


#12

I’ll try OPTODISC R08 at 12X, too bad I don’t have a drive to scan anymore, need to pick up a new Benq 1620.


#13

LoL…Okay…well…you did change the MXL RG02…

but now it’s set to only 2x, Dee…heh heh.

#14

Prema…give me at least a little more credit than that. :wink:


#15

Shows up to 12x on NEC Dump


#16

Hmm…That’s wierd. With the one she just updated, it lists 2x as the max speed for me now using Mxl RG02. Am I just an anomaly? Heh.


#17

:confused: :confused: :confused:


#18

Got me¿? I don’t have any. I just used NEC Dump to have a look see on the last update lol


#19

And CD-DVD Speed…



#20

Well yes. DVDInfo Pro will tell you that. You have to set your burn program to 12 or Nero CD/DVD Speed test to atleast 12 to try it.
