Dvr-A09 Firmware

I haven’t tried them yet so I don’t know whats improved… Ill try them when I get home…

Hmmm is the B for Beta? I know Asus released a 1.50 beta firmware a couple weeks ago but then took it back down. This is probably similar. Either way I will wait till the Buffalo version comes out as I can’t afford to lose bitsetting. Good find none the less. Thanks for the heads up.

BAA, total joke, still cant do cdr, sticks at 9% then works then fails at 57% and it even writes the lead in /out after it fails

What a POS the 109 is for cdr, 108 was perfect, just as well i have the opinion its PRIM a dvd writer and use my teac/dvd combo for cdr/rw.


#4

108 was perfect? I don’t think so.
CD Writing quality on the 108 is inferior to many other DVD Writers on the market…
But yes, at least it produced readable discs.


#5

Well I just don’t see any problem with CD-R on my 2 A09’s. Better than the 108 and as good as the Plex…


#6

Same here, now at 20-25 burn and still no glitch at all, tested with a few media and a “fast” Athlon 2100 hehe

Amd rule’z :bow:


#7

I think it might be your drive… There are only a select few that are having problems with cd-r…


#8

Yes so i read, esp 1.17 FW out the box, i never tested it out box i flashed to 1.40 immed then 2 weeks alter 1.40 cross flash to A09 (mines is 109).

bummer is the place i get my parts is great for stock, great to get it to you next day, but total wankers to deal with if you have returns.

Even though i never use for cdr ( i was testing) i want what i paid for and i need pass on when i get newer drives, so it must work in every aspect.

Hmm wonder if that OZ shops a con, although does state not in stock yet.


#10

Mine is cross flashed too, but no prob.

This new firmware include another Kernel, so this sound like another Major rev, too bad there’s no change log, maybe but still a nice find!

I wonder about the B tho…

Do not tell me it’s ßeta because I feel like I have been ß’testing this 109 since day one…


#11

Hey, you mean i should have used the tool to flash with both FW and Kernal, not just let it auto extract to C and run it ?


#12

This firmware update says “target drive not found”. What other way can I update the drive.

Extract your FW and kernal and load in this tool, beware if you got a door on pc case, cause it ejects tray.


#14

So does the B on the end mean beta? The reason I ask is because on the US pioneer site the A08/108 also has a firmware with a B on the end…

DVR108_FW120B.exe - Version 1.20-B adds 8X writing support for 8X media from TCL Corp. and New Star Digital Co. (Media IDs INFODISC R20 and IMC JPN R01) and includes all previous updates. (WIN)


#15

Done… Thanks
