Hi :slight_smile:
ala42 :bow:
I’m sure somebody will be pleased with this response. :clap: :iagree: :clap:

A n00b question at ala42. Where are the tables for supported DVD-RAM media…? Did I miss them by chance. :wink:

Looks like BenQ DQ60 seems to be a perfect drive for users with old (slow) media. :smiley:
RICOHJPN -R00, -R01 > RiTEK G04 > TYG01 > aso, aso. It’s easy to get nostalgic. :bigsmile:

Interesting - I see that RICOHJPN R01 is included in the table this time, and only at 4X. I have been getting good results at 8-12X.

I would like to remind us that this thread is for ANNOUNCEMENTS only (firmware and related). Please look at the first post in this thread and respect the guideline. Please discuss other issues in the firmware threads.

Thank you.
