Postby hydrogen on Tue Aug 17, 2004 10:27 am

Tdk released firmware 2.36 for their 8x Dual Layer Drive

Who makes this drive, and why isn't it available in the US?

Different subsidiaries.. different markets.. who knows.

As far as what drive it is.. I'm fairly certain its a ND-2510A.

A NEC 2.16 firmware for TDK ?
Can someone compares differences between 2.16 and 2.36 (bitsetting, etc.)

I don't remember where I saw this, but apparently the second digit varies per OEM. The last digit is the firmware version.

Yes. 2.xn where x is the OEM, and n the firmware revision, someone got this info from NEC in the past fay days. This 2.36 seems to be the same as NEC 2510 f/w 2.16, same strategies are dumped from those firmwares (thanks to Liggy@cdfreaks). I don't believe there's +R/+RW bitsetting, but perhaps a forced DVD+R DL bitsetting as 2.06 ?
