Will this firmware work with an older NEC3450 that is rated 8X? I don’t necessarily have to increase the speed of my drive but I’d definitely like to have the option to change the booktype bitset.

does the dell OEM drive allow you to change the bookstype for single layer?

Not with the original firmware. I have gotten the firmware from Liggy and Dee’s page and now my Dell OEM NEC 3450A shows as a NEC ND3500AG firmware 2.1something and does set the booktype very nicely. I have had some inconsistent results with DVD+RW’s though, but the DVD+R’s will now play in my old player.

the intstructions are straightforward, but take your time if you’re new at this as I am.
