  Boy Zone 21:51 06 Feb 2005


Having just updated the firmware on my Ricoh MP 5125A DVD writer. My question is will this now be compatable to write on times 8 media?
I have looked at the Ricoh site for this answer but can't find it.

I too have updated my firmware on two of my dvd drives, some drives can have a increase in speed but it all depends on what the factory settings were and what firmware you updated it too, check this site out for usefull info.

I had no problems with the firmware i had from this site and it made my drive region lock free too which can only be a bonus in my eyes

I hope this helps
