Hi Folks,

I have the above drive and had been using 4x DVD-R media from TDK, Memorex, Mitsui, Sony & Maxell media without any problems (oh yes, my firmware is Herrie’s hacked 1.09 with bitsetting). Yesterday I bought a box each of Sony 1x-8x DVD-Rs (SONY08D1) and TDK DVD-Rs (TTG02) and neither work! The TDKs are rated at 8x, so I can understand that, but the Sonys specify 1x-8x. When I load either of them, my burner recognizes them as 2x discs, but refuses to burn.

Does anyone know if there’s a more current modified firmware that will allow me to use either or both of these media?

Thanks!

Roberta

Your TDK is now turned into a Nec, right? you could try the latest official firmware from Nec http://www.de.nec.de/software/1546_Firmware_ND-1300A_WIN10B.zip but no bitsetting…

Wait a sec. Noob here. You’re telling me a TDK 440N is actually an NEC burner??

It’s a hacked firmware from Herrie. I’m looking for the latest hacked one that is based on NEC’s offiicial 1.0c. O can get to Herrie’s site, but the link to the firmware is kaput.

For more NEC firmware please have a look on my NEC mirror site. The link can be found below.

But I don’t find the requested NEC 1x00 firmwares on your page. Either you forgot to link them or they are not there at all.
