Nope I saw that post.
What I meant is a modified firmware.
Or is there no modified firmware for this drive?


#63

There’s MCSE for modifying firmwares.


#64

thanks for the reply Dr. Who. :smiley:

i am not sure how the firmware for pioneer works. as ive seen others with the 1.19 firmware which came with the drive. i didnt know if anyone was able to extract the firmware. :stuck_out_tongue:

is there any info on if it will be available or if pioneer is going to stop firmware updates and concentrate on the 116/216?

thanks,

troy

Is not possible, the firm came from somewhere else. A faster corner maybe.

Good to see the A16J firware up there as well. I order a 116D drive from newegg yesterday and look forward to eventually crossflashing it to gain SL bitsetting.


#72

It would be nice if they could look after their existing customers, as well, and release the latest 115/215 firmware. :iagree:


#73

CK you are absolutely right.

Sorry, but you’re a few years too late. It’s all about buying new burners now. Firmware updates are passe.

What makes you think firmware updates are a thing of the past? LOL! :wink:

I’m hoping that Pioneer will not become like LG. :rolleyes: All LG has done is release new drives because they’re too lazy to update firmwares for their drives already on the market.

LOL! In this case the firmware exists but they haven’t released it as an update, only in new drives.

I’m curious about how you would get a firmware version (1.19) that hasn’t been officially released yet on a new DVR-115/215 that Pioneer probably quit manufacturing six months ago. Are you sure these weren’t re-flashed refurbs or used drives?
I just ordered a new DVR-215D from Buy.com because I wanted that particular model. It arrived with 1.13 firmware and a manufacturing date of Dec. 2007. It was one of the very few they had left. After thinking about it, I figured that they probably stopped production on the DVR-115/215 in favor of the new DVR-116/216 sometime during the first few months of 2008 on the assumption that they had enough of the 115/215’s in the distribution pipeline to last until the new 116/216’s were ready .
