Not long ago my Pioneer DVR-217L suddenly felt into the quiet mode - it happened when I've disconnected and connected again the drive (very weird!) - now it reads DVD on maximum 8x and CD on maximum 24x speed, but still perfectly burns DVDs on 20x speed with good quality just like before and also burns CDs on 40x speed.
I want performance mode back. I've tried to upgrade and downgrade the firmware, but situation is all the same. Burst rate of the drive is about 53 Mbps, by the way. I've got Pioneer Drive Utility 1.14 which can change the quiet mode settings, but it doesn't see my DVR-217, it sees only DVR-116 and DVR-216 series drives.
Any ideas what could I try? I wanted to try dangerous crossflashing into semibricked DVR-216, then change the settings, and then flash it again into DVR-217L, should I try it? I don't know if semibricked DVR-216 can be crossflashed into DVR-217 again (perhaps with opened tray), just like crossflashing semibricked DVR-217 into DVR-216 again. :eek:
Anyone tried to crossflash DVR-217 -> DVR-216 -> DVR-217?
