ND-2510A - What will be changed with firmware 2.16?

The DvD+R medias below will be recognized with firmware 1.07, but be
informed, they won`t be added to our list of recommend medias ,
because there is no guarantee for optimal burn results and performance.

Also there will be improved DvD+R9 compatibility in cooperation
with new release of Nero ( www.nero.com )

Do we have any idea the difference between 2.06 and 2.16?


#4

Checking now :wink:


#5

Hi!

I’ve just checked the writing strategy version numbers. They’re exactly the same as in 2.06, so there are no further improvements (DVD+R DL from RiTEK still isn’t supported, but RiTEK G05 is supported @8x officially now :slight_smile: )… NEC has only made it official now.

But it’s a nice find anyway, thank you! :wink:

thanks I think Legnerp may be right, nec just called 2.06 2.16 for the official release


#7

Yep looks very much like a official release of V2.06 Ritek DL support would have been nice, guess we have to wait a bit longer :sad:

Nice find BTW Jolibee :iagree:


#8

I had a feeling it was the same. Oh well, alteast 2.16 is greater than 2.15 (unlike 2.06) so no more confusing version numbering!

Also i would think 2.16 will windows flash right over 2.06 if you really wanted to do it, I my self if they are the same am just going to leave it till 2.17 shows up. no point in flashing when you dont have to


#10

It says in the readme that it will only flash over 2.15 i aint tried it, as i have been getting great burns with 2.06.

Would be interesting to find out if it will flash over 2.06 though :slight_smile:


#11

I’ve just made it to a .bin and flashed it in DOS over 2.06. As expected there are no problems. I think TDB will provide hacked binaries soon… :wink:


#12

Cool :iagree:
I’d like to see something from Herrie based on this firmware as well.

Bed for me now, its late. nn all


#13

I got 2.15 on dos disk so i can flash it to that then to 2.16, but its not in pc right now I had to make room for my new BenQ dw1600

nu tech 082 B375
pioneer 107d 1.18
BenQ 1600 B5G9
liteon 832 in firewire encloser


#14

I have a 2500A with Herrie’s 1.07 DL beta 5… can I somehow upgrade to this? I want the 4x Optodisc DVD+RW support!
I’ve been out of the loop recently; I’ve been playing with my Lite-On 451S too much. :rolleyes:


#15

How can I flash my HP420i (currently using HP 1.28 firmware) with NEC 2.16?

Is it worth it?


#16

you will loose bitsetting stock nec fw does not bitset


#17

What booktype does 2.16 set on DVD+R DL’s?


#18

If it is really a “renamed” 2.06 (as it seems to be, even the date is the same), it will set DVD+R DL booktype to DVD-ROM by default. It is not able to change the booktype on single layer discs!


#19

can anyone give me a download link to 2.15 so i can switch to 2.16

i just prefer having “official firmwares” :slight_smile:

i am using 2.06 at the moment and the writes I am getting with it are far superior to 2.15.


#20

You can download the 2.15 binaries and the DOS flasher from The Dangerous Brothers. I think the 2.16 binaries will show up there soon, too… :slight_smile:
