Question about firmware 1.08/7200A

vbimport

#1

I am not trying to rush liggy at all since it does no good anyways :bigsmile: but I was just inquiring if anyone has heard any kind of date when 7200A 1.08bt might be ready for download?

                                                    Thanks

                                                         Joe

BTW: Thanks a lot for you work liggy I wouldn’t use an optiarc drive without it (Seriously)

I just noticed that there is a 1.08 firmware yesterday.

Unfortunately I have loads of stress at work for a few weeks now already so I’m not really in the mood of spending much time at my PC when I get home. But I guess I can find some time during my next holiday starting in mid-December.

BTW: I wouldn’t buy Optiarc drives either if there was no DVD+R bitsetting available :wink:

i saw it too and glad to see you will be working on it soon, def worth the wait for your mod before updating. :slight_smile:

i’m also glad to see an upated firmware as the 7200 seems to be on it’s way out (deactivated item at new egg), i’ve never had an NEC based drive until now (Litey and Ben-Q for the past 5+ years), I hope firmware updates continue for quite some time.

thanks!

Yes I have a broke 7200(A) & newegg still sells 7200(S) so I am going to buy 7200(S) & transfer insides I will let know here if it works


#6

Yes without bitset I would not buy nec

The 7200A (PATA) is still alive and well on NewEgg. It has not been deactivated. I believe that only the 7200S (SATA) has been deactivated. It’s obviously to make room for the new 7220 and 7221 drives (which unfortunately, are Lite-On rebadges).

BTW, 1.09 firmware is out now for the 7200 series.

Where do you find that version? I look at http://www.sonynec-optiarc.de/en/support-service/downloads/fw_dvd-writer-ad-series.html and see only 1.06 and 1.07 depending on which model.

Thank you.
