[QUOTE=Wishbringer;2727062]Still no update for Pioneer BDR-209EBK (ID: 60).
Seems I bought the wrong drive.[/QUOTE]

It will be coming soon.
The improvements are unessential for me.

It is even worse for the BDR-208EBK/BDR-2208 drives. ID43 drives (BDR-S08J/XLT) had not one but two firmware updates so far, and yet they still haven’t released a single ID60 update! :rolleyes:

It is worse still for the ‘D’ flavours.

That wasn’t the case for BDR-208M drives with ID60 (see above), so let’s hope that things will change and ID60 updates will be coming soon … it would be about time for Pioneer to get their act together and stop ignoring ID60 drives … for ID60 208M drives they are already 2 firmwares behind and still stuck on their factory shipped firmware…

As for improvements, when it comes to the 209’s every little helps I’d say. I’m getting significantly poorer burn results on most BD-R media I tried compared to the 208 family … and the 1.20 firmware didn’t seem to change things much …


#187

Too bad Pioneer doesn’t release firmware updates for the rest of the 208 and 209 series.


#188

Pioneer has finally released new firmware for 208/209 EBK/UBK/DBK drives.

Thanks, but ID:General doesn’t work with with BDR-207M, EBK (ID:60).
i still hope they release the firmware also for this device.

That’s perfectly normal unfortunately. The BDR-207EBK/UBK/2207 need an ID60 firmware update.

[QUOTE=prody0815;2741524]i still hope they release the firmware also for this device.[/QUOTE]

I very much hope that they release an ID60 update as well.

Between the direct Pioneer releases and the ST-Trade releases, they accounted for all the other 207M drives except for the ID60 which is very unfortunate given that it would be trivial for them to do an ID60 release as well…

C’mon Pioneer, get into the Xmas spirit and dish out an ID60 update as well :wink:
