Ian do you still have the 1600 used for that preview? If so you can use this upgrade and do some testing.

Sure. Here's the new firmware for the DW1620. Don't use this one if you're trying to upgrade from a DW1600.

RicohJPN-R02 8x +r can now be burned at 16x. I've tried it but so far 4 coasters. With Nero-cdspeed-create data disc goes to 14x and then get write error. :cry:
