I am new to this forum and also very new to DVD Authoring, about 1 week old.
I recently bought NEC 3500AG from New Egg. I browsed through this forum and downloaded one of the firmwareâ€™s which is being actively discussed in the forum, the 2.27 version. Main reason for me to flash my drive was to remove the riplock.
I used dvdxcopy platinum to backup my old movie Shrek, the media I used was the one NewEgg sent me freely ( I dont remember if its 4x or 8x), It took me about 50 minutes. So I thought it must have been because of riplock, I am seeing such slow performance.
I was able to backup and then install the new firmware using Uniflash.
My question is It changed my DMA settings, I guess which is natural. Now my computer says I still have 2 more chances to make changes if necessary.
Why did I loose a count of 2 or 3 (I remember seeing a total of 5 chances for me to make changes, which I could be wrong) for one install of the new firmware.
How do all the people who do the testing about different firmwares, do this by not loosing the DMA counts.
