Before launching this thread, I had read through all the old threads regarding the difference between the 216 and the 216D, but nowhere did I see the actual procedure or firmware file to use, or any success story. [/quote]Indeed, that’s correct.
And, Pioneer tech support is either lying or clueless because they say the latest firmware should work.
seems, they don’t know their own products;)
Seriously, the [B]D [/B]series Pioneer DVD burners are not specified to write DVD-RAM. Just read the spec sheet from the link posted by Whappo.
In short: if you need DVD-RAM writing, the 216D is of no use for you (unless you are using other media also)
[QUOTE=Whappo;2222953]Check this link and click on the Media link, it’s a small PDF.[/QUOTE]Their media list is a joke. It states write speeds for DVD-RAM
And the specs document from the same location does not list DVD-RAM in the write support section.
