#1

Here is the new firmware for TDK 1616 (NEC 3500 OEM)

http://www.tdk.com.sg/support/download/firmware/TDK1616_v278.exe


#2

Now lets see what it does :), Liggy, check the burning speeds and you can start swapping :).


#3

Somebody can send it to TDB?
It would be nice to try it on NEC :slight_smile:


#4

Already done. Going to post them here now.


#5

I’m burning a +R just now to see if bitsetting is locked at Booktype DVD-ROM like the TDK 2.c7 firmware. You can’t change booktype for SL +R with the bitsetting util, you can only change DL booktype.


#6

Booktype is not locked to DVD-ROM in this firmware :sad:




#7

Have they reenabled bitsetting for dvd+R’s anyone…

sorry dee answered in other thread No… damn why have they turned that feature off… is this a sign of things to come… liggy can you find the differences yourself to re-enable the SL dvd+r bitsetting so we can use this firmware or are we SOL til a newer one comes out with this enabled.

thanks in advance

No way. I barely understand some the assembler code of these drives, but I’m completely unable to implement any changes and that’s what needs to be done.


#9

Sianzzzz
:sad:


#10

That’s becos 2.c7 is actually newer than 2.78, I had 2.78 a few days before the 2.c7 was released. Hopefully all newer firmware from TDK SG in future will support booktyping.


#11

Maybe there will be a new mad dog firmware soon.


#12

I thought 2.78 newer? :confused:
The write strategy is newer version according to http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?p=688859#post688859


#13

The strategy versions in 2.78 are newer than those in 2.c7, but the build date is a little bit earlier.


#14

TDK 2.78 may not have SL +R bitsetting, but there’s nothing wrong with the way it burns a disc :slight_smile:
Here’s a scan of the ProdiscR03 i burned earlier to test for bitsetting.



#15

At what speed did you write this disc?


#16

default 8X with TDK 2.78 firmware


#17

Just had look on tdb site they have not done name string change as yet still just showing 2.77 , but im sure they will soon. shame about bitsetting on 2.78 though.


#18

thanks for help

#19

Now waiting for the 2.c8.
Heard that it is releasing soon. :bow:


#20

if you can obtain the bin file for 2.77, then flash your nec3500 to tdk 2.77. Then you can use the official flasher.
