Hi all...just stumbled upon this forum after doing a search on this drive...just installed it today and began burning.
I noticed, however, that there are new firmwares available, notably 1.24 and 1.25 based on the I/O drives. I'm currently using the original 1.04 firmware that came bundled with mine.
However, when I tried to update the firmware to the original 1.24 with binflash in windows xp, it told me that no matching drive was detected. It states the following:
Identified drive: 5
Detected drive from Firmware: -1
I take it that means I don't have the particular rebadged 3520a drive necessary. My main goal is to be able to set the bitsetting on my DVD+R single layers to DVD-ROM, and it appears only the 1.24 and up firmwares support this. I've managed to burn 4 successful data dvd's out of 4 with verbatim 16x dvd+r SL media...all with times ranging from 6:30 - 10:00 minutes...I'm thinking it's because some of the files were in very fragmented directories on seperate partitions.
Nevertheless, is there any hope for a guy like me to take advantage of this 16x dvd+r SL media with DVD-ROM capabilities, or will I have to await for an upcoming firmware release? Thanks again people
