ETP; I upgraded my self to A070G from Micro Advantage site, did some testing, the drive is friendly with +R format (burn some Maxell +R 8X at 12X) but nasty on -R format, also did the testing on transfer rate with Nero CD/DVD Speed with result kind of pyramid type the drive climb to 8.4X at first layer and drops to 4X at second.
Question; have tried to flash the drive with Aopen latest F/W which is duw1608_r107? I wonder if any one has done that, since the drive is Genuine Aopen may be we should flash it with Aopen F/W instead of M/A one. The minimum that will do make drive to be identified as Aopen duw1608.
