Change log: Modification for the BD-R/RE writing problem under the specified condition[/QUOTE]

What specified condition?


#167

[QUOTE=Dogway;2695946]What specified condition?[/QUOTE]

I’m pretty sure it just means “improve general BD-R/RE performance & avoids problems under certain conditions”. We probably will never know what the “certain conditions” are. The change logs for firmware are typically very general and don’t specify what an issue was unless it was a widely-known problem.


#168

Thanks for clarification, now I can see through the phrase. Some inter-language conflict here I guess, sorry!


#169

I’m not sure but recently (probably with the firmware update) I started to hear drive sounds when reading discs… am I alone?

BDR-S08XLB firmware 1.30 - would be nice if this could have been used on a BDR-208D

Pioneer has removed recent firmware updates for S08J, 208JBK, S09J and 209JBK drives. They are no longer mentioned on firmware download page, direct links to both firmware and media lists are now dead…


#182

If there were something wrong with the updates, why should they remove the media list, too? :confused:


#183

They are back again.
Pioneer was probably maintaining its website…


#184

Still no update for Pioneer BDR-209EBK (ID: 60).
Seems I bought the wrong drive.
