Changing Pioneer DVDÂ±R write strategies (results thread)
Usage firmware modification:
1/ Download the firmware you want to modify.
2/ Start MCSE.
3/ Load the firmware normal file file, e.g. RB100111.122 for the 110D 1.22 firmware.
4/ To increase the write speed, double click the media code you want to change and select the write strategy you want to use instead. This is a bit of trial and error. Check the Changing Pioneer DVDÂ±R write strategies (results thread) to see if your modification has been tried before.
5/ To apply the RPC1 patch, select the RPC1 checkbox.
6/ To apply the Bitset patch, select the enable bitsetting checkbox.
7/ To apply the read speed patch, select the increase readspeed checkbox.
8/ Save the firmware. When using the Pioneer flasher the file name may not be changed.
9/ Flash the modified firmware. The Pioneer flasher does not allow to downgrade or even to flash the same firmware release again. DVRFlash does not have this silly restriction. The flashers used in the TDB Pioneer RPC1 patches also do not have these restrictions.
Usage Flasher modification:
MCSE can remove the flasher restriction described above for 112x/115x/212x/215x/K17 flasher
1/ Download the flasher you want to modify.
2/ Start MCSE.
3/ Load the flasher .exe file, e.g. UPR12.exe for the DVR-112_FW122EU flasher.
4/ Select the allow same to same flashing checkbox.
5/ Save the modified flasher.
- Strategy swapping for RW and DL media is not recommended.
- Changing (disabling) of write speeds is currently not implemented.
