i can’t wait!!
Don’t push ala!! :a
You should be thankful for his great work and his wonderful tool!
Patience Nekrosoft, I know how you feel, I can’t wait either, but Pianoman is right, ala will do it when he can. He doesn’t earn a living from his program, he does it for all of us, so lets all chill and wait until the man is ready!
The problem with the new 1655 firmware is that the code and media table grew in size. The free space inside the firmware binary needed to unpack the compressed media table to make it patch friendly is too small, so I have to change the used mechanism somehow. This takes some time I do not have during the week.
Any chance a copy of this G*** firmware is available someplace?
Anyone with a 1655 drive brave enough to test the new mechanism ? Drop me a PM. I have to warn you, this could kill your drive, so only respond if you can stand a potential loss.
I will test the new mechanism.
Here are the Benq releated changes of MediaCodeSpeedEdit V188.8.131.52:
Changelog 184.108.40.206 10 Sep 2006 - added support for BENQ DVD DD DW1650 BCIC Thanks to Zachzi for the tests. - verified support for BENQ DVD DC DW1670 1.03 Thanks zevia for the tests. - added support for PHILIPS DVDR1648P1 P2.4 - added support for PHILIPS DVDR1628P1 Q2.4
Sorry, no Benq 1655 BCIB support, just a dead test drive
Already saw that - damn!
What’s so difficult with this f/w?
Why does BCIB work, and BCIC not?
I’m just curious…
(And I need my BenQ 1655 for ripping )
EDIT: Nevertheless - THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS!
BCIC is smaller, so the expanded media table fits.
Yeah, I was early with joy, didn’t see BCIB wasn’t supported.
Thanks ala anyway!
Am I doing something wrong, or does your great program
not work with the Test firmware for the LiteOn 160P6S?
Thank you ala42 for the support, also to Zachzi. Also thanks and condolence for those whom drives got killed.
BCIB is smaller, so the expanded media table fits.
BCIC you mean?
Yep, the 1650 firmware is smaller.
