Italian job is that firmware you linked to the same as TDB's hacked MadDog firmware?

I tried TDB's firmware and still couldn't get my RICHOJPN R01 to write above 6x. The bit setting utility kept freezing up as well. I tried to flash the firmware with the one you inked to, but I kept getting an error message. What flasher should I use. I tried using TDB's DOS NEC flasher.

TDB 2.F8 = Quikee 2F8RPC1

Download and open firmware whith the Quikee tool named "necdump" 1.0 RC1 (on the same page) to see if they are well downloaded.

Flash then with http://binflash.cdfreaks.com (Win32 Gui)

Yeah I eventually figured it out, thanks for the reply.

I ended up going with Herrie's 2500 beta 5 firmware as it overspeeds my 4x RiDATA to 8x where the 2.F8 was 6x. Bit setting is a none issue for me as well.

Hey Italian Job! If for some strange reason I deside to go back to an official 2.17/2.?? NEC FW, would I just dump the old FW in bin flash and reinstall 2.16 or could I go straight to 2.17 in bin flash?

2.F8 supports more DL discs : RitekD01, Philips, etc. and has up to date writting strategies (=NEC 2510 2.17 with SL bitsetting).
I'm happy with 2.F8.

Yes you can use a Windows version :
One of the TDB 2.F8 use a Windows GUI, very simple to flash.
Good reputation ? Yes, even if they are "dangerous" brothers :lol:

(If you want discs overspeed, Quikee is creating a beta 2.F8 firmware with some media overspeed. See the dedicated thread at cdfreaks.)
