Unofficial download (unscrambled):: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html

Supports a total of 222 media codes, including MCC004 (not that people would want to burn 16x media on a 8x drive…); no other 2S series firmware supports this many. So I guess a “match more media” changelog here would certainly be apropos.

Here’s a test with YUDEN000T02 (Fujifilm-branded, serial TG001125 0102) with VY08 on my 812S. No change from any of the other firmwares really; I still get high errors in the 4x CLV area, rest of the disc is great.


#3

Here’s a test with Maxell 8x DVD-R, media code MXLRG03. Pretty darn good for 8x -R burned on a 812S-based drive.


#4

Your results look like mine with the Fuji T02 on both a 851 & 812 drive with various firmwares. Although I did have a few with the mountain at the end of the disk. I assume the scan posted is ok, but I now burn the Fuji’s in my BenQ 1620 or PIOData 108 with a more even result.

:slight_smile:

Test with Verbatim MCC002

Hi there Im running the VY08 firmware on a Sony DRU-700A

The first shocker of a scan is with the same Ritek 8x Media running the LiteOn 832s tweaked CG3E f/w and the 2nd is with the same media running VY08… big difference. :bigsmile:

As happy as I am with the improvement is this the best I can expect from this new firmware - are there any tweaks etc that I can apply?

Ooooh oooh ooohh please help me! i have a sony drx-700ul external that perhaps uses the drive mentioned in this forum inside the enclosure, well, i tryed to update the firmware and now i have a toaster. something went wrong and the drive is no longer recognized at any level by any OS. but i see people are using some sorta firmware tool here? to do the job. please help me as I was a fool - i have clients waiting. the reason i came to this forum in the first place is that the only DVD burners available in this little kingdom of nepal is the liteon 16x, and what i was wondering is if i could just pop one in the sony drx-700ul enclosure and make it work somehow. or get the internal and put it in an ide-to-usb enclosure which they also have here.

the other problem i will have is that i have the oem version of Nero, which would only support the sony, but i can get around that, i won’t mention how wink wink say no more.

i loved the burning system i had/have and wish it could all be undone so i could have it back.

crying in nepal,
jigs


#8

there was also another update called FWUdate that did something regarding waking up the usb after suspend - this is what killed my drive - does anyone know how to reflash this update or what it really does? i dont have a bin for this, only for VY08? thanks!
