I have been trying to answer this question:
Which is the real interest of flashing a Pioneer 109 to a A09 ?
I understand that a A09 is detected by the Quiet Drive Utility but is that all ?
So while searching for an answer I found this website which is only dedicated to the Pioneer 109 and family:
and in this particular thread:
" To transform Pioneer Dvr-109 into A09 "
I noticed a post by Huggy and he uses a firmware A09FW1.55 from the site of flashman.rpc1
and I read in the post:
" You will now have a DVR-A09 which can have full rip speed enabled by using Pioneer's quietdrive utility
and after he shows a test with DVD Decrypter
So I am not a specialist and I have never "crossflashed" a 109 into a A09 (because I have only a Pioneer 107 and a 108)
and I hope you understand perfectly what you are doing ...
My first interest was to be able to flash a Pioneer drive
- in the case you have to downgrade a firmware because of problems
- or if you want to upgrade one of these "pseudo-Pioneer" burners that yopu can find in computers of brand "Medion"
