New firmwares: DVR-A03/A04

=> Both drives can now write to highspeed dvd-r discs at 2x

I could download the new DVR-A03 and DVR-A04 firmware from Pioneer Australia but are they now available in other Pioneer sites?

Pioneer DVD Recorders Firmware

Pioneer DVR-A03/103

Pioneer DVR-A03/103 Firmware 2.00

Pioneer DVR-A04/104

Pioneer DVR-A04/104 Firmware 1.40

Edit:

I made this thread sticky - temporarily - as DVR-A03/103/A04/104 drives and their rebadged drives have been the most popular so far

Gradius’s hacked firmware:
A04 RPC-1 only and RPC-1 + 2x4all patch for v1.40
A03 RPC-1 only and RPC-1 + 2x4all patch for v2.00

Back to downloadable now (the links were unavailable for a few days.)

I’ve justed played a bit with CloneCD: My DVR-A03 now works with CloneCD RAW-SAO (before, it didn’t work at all with CloneCD).
Overburning is still not supported at all, neither CloneCD nor Nero does.

EDIT: Now it suddenly doesn’t work…
