There is a difference between just adding a certain MID code to the firmware and really declaring compatibility.
When a certain new MID code is added to the firmware, it doesn’t mean that immediately the drive works perfectly with that particular media. The media can then be recognized, but hasn’t been thoroughly tested on many drives with many discs, so doesn’t necessarily work flawless all the time.
Only after the firmware has been thoroughly tested, using many drives and many discs, will we declare full compatibility with a certain media and put it on the BTC website’s media compatibility list. Only then you may expect them to work flawlessly.
Sometimes the process of tuning firmware and subsequent thorough testing has to be done a couple of times before a satisfactory result is obtained. In other words, it takes a lot of time to tune media, that is why it’s not that easy to add a new item to the media support list.
And now that the DRW1008 has come out, the work has even doubled…
