Dose anyone know if this burner can be flashed to another type of burner or the firmwere updated so it can burn other DVD disc’s it only supports +dvd at the momment
It can be flashed to an ND1300 which writes -R media as well but the success rate is low. It never worked for me.
Being a very old drive now the firmware support for much of the media currently available is non-existant. The last firmware available was released 2 1/2 years ago.
In all truth you’d be much better off spending Â£20 on a new burner.
The ND1300-derived patched firmware is apparently better tuned for +R (more media, better default stategy), but getting -R capability is a rather flaky bonus.
It IS an obsolete model, and current drives cost less than a cakebox of good quality media.
Thanks 4 the replies
Managed to find a forum for this drive and it came to the same conclusion its not worth messing with it better getting a new drive
Now to find out which one
Pioneer 111D, Benq 1650 or 1655 (if you could find one) , Samsung S182D (I think) would be 3 to start with.
I’ve got the first 2 & I like the sound of the Samsung. PC World were selling off Benq 1650 for Â£25 a few weeks ago , might still have some.
Depends if you want DVD-RAM writing , Lightscribe/Labelflash etc…
