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.


#3

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?


#4

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


#5

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


#6

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:
