I informed yesterday to the firmware department of this new version, but nothing has been posted online yet.
I have actually tried it now and must say that it is cool to actually have a 8x -R drive.So now the drive can burn DvDs both +R and -R at 8x.
What the drive really lacked before was the CDr/RW support which was crap to be polite. Now I could burn a few CDs at 40, the drive’s maximum speed. The three of them were Imation 48x CDrs manufactured by CMC MAgnetics.
Also I could burn a DVD-RW that before could even recognize it.
Overall a great update, but most of all, a really needed one.
I would like to know if any body has had any luck recording at 8x with -R DvDs. I couldn’t try yesterday.
PS:sorry if the post is in the incorrect part of the forum, but this is the firmware forum, and wanted to let everybody else know that it is actually available.
