Daxon AZ3 problems still exist (see mfg suggestion thread) but CMC E01 is finally supported at 8x. Testing as we speak…

I’m still waiting for Buffalo f/w too (auto bitsetting) :wink:

Results seem promosing!!! I’m upgrading mine as soon as I get home!

Yup Buffalo modded with region free and no rip lock just like the current maxrip 1.37 variant. Thanks for the info it has been quite a while since a firmware update came out for this drive.

Does any of 1.39 a10 110 110d stock firmwares do +R bitsetting now? I assume they still do +R DL bitsetting.

Here’s the results on TDK branded CMC E01 @ 8x. Ok burn quality, but not as good as a lot of other drives, including the DVR-109 which routinely produces quality scores of 98 with this media. PIF totals are usually in the 250-400 range on the ND-3500A, PX-716A, 4163B, and DVR-109 (@ 12x!). Even the SH-W162C TS10 matched this result with total PIFs under 900.

Don’t expect that to happen.

Let’s wait for the 8.39 from Buffalo.

Thanks chef, just wondering if anyone actually tested all three pio 1.39 fw’s and found any different surprises just by chance. I am currently happy with 8.37 bitsetting maxrip so not bothering to flash to 1.39 yet. Hopefully buffalo 8.39 will not be too long a wait as you mentioned.

remember just because Buffalo releases a firmware doesn’t mean its going to be patched. We have to be patient, thankful and gratefull to Nullz for making the firmware what it is. TDB play a huge part as well. Without them we would have no RPC-1 or rip lock removed. It is them that makes the firmware all the much better.

Don’t forget ala42s powerful MCSE tool.

IT’S MAGIC!
