Just a little notice: isn’t it: “has sent” ? Let’s download :stuck_out_tongue:

jpschadde, are you really so bored that you need to whine about a typo? :r


#4

I wonder if it will be Safedisc 2 compatible? Only time will tell :8


#5

I’m more interested to hear about whether it will allow it to read RAW96. That is probably the only reason why I wouldn’t buy a 1610 right now. I think most people have avoided it for that reason. No CloneCD, No Sale.

Im wondering how this recorder has PoweRec when it didnt have it when I first bought it… New firmware is always nice… I wonder if it is possible to add things like BurnProof 2 and PoweRec2 w/ Z-CLV technology with a firmaware update…? :9

Here is what I get in the CD Clone Settings Windows after the firmware install. Device Capabilities: Note: This information is provided by the unit, it might be inaccurate. CloneCD does not use this information! Manufacturer: PLEXTOR Product: CD-R PX-W1610A Revision: 1.03 Can read CD-R Discs: Yes Can read CD-RW Discs: Yes Can read DVD Discs: No Can read MultiSession Discs: Yes Can read Digital Audio Discs: Yes Digital Audio Data is accurate: Yes Can read CD-Text: Yes Can write CD-R Discs: Yes Can write CD-RW Discs: Yes Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO: Yes Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO Write Simulation: No Supports writing of CD+G RAW-DAO: Yes Compatible with CloneCD RAW-SAO: No Supports Burn Proof / Just Link: Yes Looks like it will do Safe disk 2 now. :7

How do you figure that? Didnt it give the same information before the update? Try burning a SD2 CD and then confirm that it does…


#9

Hypnosis4U2NV You First. Let me know if you get a coaster or not. :d


#10

I would if I owned a SD2 CD… :4


#11

OK. I got one. Maddan 2001 is SD2. I’ll try it. :r


#12

If work…i buy it tomorrow…!! I stay tuned


#13

Well Maddan 2001 is only SafeDisk 1 protected but it worked. Before I would get coasters. Anybody got a SD2 game out there to try. :c


#14

Till now I wasn’t able to clone Black & White (safeDisc2). I’ll try it with the new firmware and post it here soon :wink:

:(Bad news Guys, HITMAN (SD2) Read 1x and write (1x) with spécification of CLONY (final). RESULT: DOESN’T WORK on my LG 52x!!! Don’t worry …be happy…the 24/10/40 is comming!!!


#16

Then Read it with the plextor to an image file then burn with the plextor.


#17

:slight_smile: yes, use the plextor as the reader and the writer. i’m gonna burn afew games that use safedisk2, i’ll let ya all know if it works.


#18

well, got good news and bad. copied Emperor - Battle for Dune :slight_smile: good news is that u can copy it no problem with plextor 16/10/40a with new firmware. used cloncd ver. 3.0.5.1 game works fine in the plextor drive. :c bad news is it doesn’t work in my aopen 52x drive. ohwell atleast it works in plextor. laters


#19

Isn’t this how it worked all all the time, the plextor drives (1610, 1210 etc.) will copy sd2, but the copy will only play in the source recorder?
