LD Firmware Mini FAQ
Q: Which NEC firmware is this firmware based on?
A: This firmware is based on IO-DATA ND-3520A firmware 1.24 with AUTO Bitsetting with riplock removed and RPC1
Q: How do i flash my drive with this firmware?
A: The firmware is now bundled with LiggysBinflash 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 donâ€™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 donâ€™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: This firmware AUTO Bitsets +R media with booktype DVD-ROM
Q: How do i use DL +R bitsetting?
A: This firmware AUTO Bitsets +R DL media with booktype DVD-ROM
