New SL bitsetting firmware for NEC 3500A! -- MADDOG 2.F8

vbimport

#1

Edit again again!: Herrie also has this firmware on his site http://herrie.org , he has renamed the drive ID string to NEC 3500A and renamed the firmware number to 2.17.

Edit again!: TDB have now patched a version with the NEC 3500 ID string!
http://tdb.rpc1.org/#ND3500A
This firmware will cause the drive to report as “_NEC DVD_RW ND-3500AG 2.F8”. Nice!

Edit: This is now hosted on TheDangerousBrothers site with RPC1 and riplock-free versions! http://tdb.rpc1.org/#MD16XDVD9 Big thanks to TDB as usual! :slight_smile:
Please only use my site as a mirror!

I have extracted the BIN from the Windows flasher, packaged it with the new WBType.exe SL/DL bitsetting utility and hosted it on my site!
http://Wesleytech.com/files/MADDOG2F8.rar
No hacks have been made to this firmware!

Flash with Liggys’ NEC Flash utility OR Flash in DOS using TDB 3x00.exe DOS utility! http://tdb.rpc1.org

Your drive will now have an ID string of ‘MAD DOG MD-16XDVD9’.

Thanks!


#3

Thanks wes :bow: :bow: :bow:

Burning right now. Hopefully we will se bitsetting (SL) working on my NEC-3500 sooon.

Note. Bitsetting-tool kinda slow at loading…
And so is my Internet right now. On dial-up, cause ISP maintenance.

:smiley:


#4

strange, dvd decryptor gives much higher burning speed options with my prodisc r03 with this firmware. i set it to 16X but its only burning at 8X


#5

My first DVD-ROM on NEC ND-3500

Sweet. :bow:




#6

Thanks for the successful DVD+R bitset to DVD-ROM confirmation pinto2!


#7

Cool! Guess I’ll order my 3500 from New Egg tonight. When TheDangerousBrothers host a hacked ver do they usually include speed hacks and different write strategies? I’ve been a Litey fan up till now and NEC hacking is a little different since COdeKing released the OmniPatcher and made fw and cross flashing changes so easy. Seems NEC has the edge on the error count right now and there is no telling when LiteOn will release their 1635 drive. Methinks u just made the 3500 the drive everyone needs to catch up to. Good Job!!!


#8

heres my scan with this new firmware. might be the best ive ever seen!



#9

No, TDB do not perform write strategy or increased media speed hacks.
We’ll have to wait for Herrie for that type of firmware! (firmware already emailed to him!)


#10

This is a great community, and I´m proud to be part of it.

My thanks to everybody made this possible. :bow: :bigsmile: :smiley:

#13

#14

I’ve become predictable :o
Have to say, this firmware does look very promising, and many thanks for getting this firmware out so quickly :wink:

Awesome burn btw nakedeye :slight_smile:


#15

Well done TDB :slight_smile: :bow:

Back to bed now :slight_smile:

Bitsetting on SL and DL media, improved burnquality…NEC-3500 is a champ! :bigsmile:
KProbe scan of the same disc as above.




#17

Mines better :stuck_out_tongue:


#18

Just to add that I used Liggy’s Windows Flasher and the 2.F8 bin file from the DOS package and flashed my 3500AG in a Oxford911/ALI Firewire/USB2 Combo drive with success. I was using the Firewire interface.
Need to process some DVD to burn… However, I ams still getting 4x for my YUDEN000T01. Any idea how I can push this further? NEC2510A and Plextor708a can burn this at 8x…

I believe RDGrimes was working with Herrie on a T01+T03 strat swap. I think he was able to burn one @ 16@, it slowed down a bit at the end but was a very good burn at a good speed.
