Where can I still buy the good old Pioneer DVR-215BK?

Hello!

Does anybody know a shop in Europe where I can still buy the Pioneer DVR-215BK (not the 215D/215DBK)? I was searching a long time, but couldn’t find a shop. I would be very grateful if somebody could tell me a shop.

Thank you very much
Daniel

Hi,

it seems as if this drive is available at damrotech.com
Since the description is slightly confusing, I’d ask before ordering.

Unfortunately it is the “D” version without RAM writing support and it is gray instead of black. Are there any other shops that still have this drive?

Crossflashing a 215D to 215 “non-D” is not an option? Admitted, warranty is void then.

Is this possible? Can I really burn RAM media with a crossflashed 215D? But I would prefer a normal 215BK.

Any updates on this?

[quote=wontellyou;2148332]Is this possible? Can I really burn RAM media with a crossflashed 215D?[/quote]Yes. DVD-RAM writing is disabled by firmware for the D series drives.

But I would prefer a normal 215BK.
Which is getting hard at the moment. :wink:
