No more Pioneer speed hacks without >NIL:?

it’s since some months now >NIL: has left and no one is emerged in the Pioneer scene to release some speed hacks for 109 drive. I wonder how is it since Nec drives have so many people releasing patched firmwares.

Maybe some day a talented guy will give us a “new hope”. IMO Pioneer drives are way superior to any other (I had a Nec 2510, 3500 and 3520) DVD recorder…

:bow:

May ask yourself a question:
Why do I want that “feature” and do I need it really???


#3

I don’t care about burn all speeds on all discs, I just want region free and most of all unlimited rip speed unlocked.


#4

Then use a prog like anydvd or dvdregionfree and a good DVD-ROM for unlimited ripspeed.


#5

For ripspeed unlock, you have the 109 to A09XL hack
The other thing often mentioned, is the A09XL = Quietdrive supported and riplock removed, while the Buffalo 109 firmare can bitset +R as well as +R9.

But I’d prefer to use/abuse a DVD-ROM for ripping

I just want bit setting. I recently got a DVR-109 (OEM) for my 2nd PC. I have not installed it yet, as my DVR-108 that is in it now does bit-setting. (Piodata conversion). I will need to do the Buffalo conversion. Just been too lzy as I rarely burn any DVD’s. hehe It’s mainly for data backup. And bit-setting to DVD-ROM makes DVD ROM drives read 'em faster. :wink:

That’s only useful if the source media (quality) is good enough, otherwise it will end up with CRC and errors.

Yep, so I stocked up on those FUJI M.I.J. TY disks. They are awesome. :slight_smile:

6 months ago 4x media were a lot cheaper than 8x and some of them supported 8x writing speed with a dramatically time gain… the prices for 8x media now are so low that no one bothers to burn those at 16x for a 2 minutes gain.
