Firmware upgrade for DVD/CD Drives

1x to 4x DVD+R disc compatibility information

If a new 1x to 4x DVD+R disc is used in a MP5125A drive with firmware versions 1.38 or earlier, it may not be possible to set the output settings properly for the test-write area (the area where the writing power settings are made). In such situations, the following may occur.
- The process of writing to the disc cannot start
Also, if the writing power is set too high, the tracking servo may become unstable in the middle of the writing process, which could cause the following.
  • Data written to the disc cannot be read
To avoid these problems, it is imperative that the MP5125A drive’s firmware be updated to version 1.64 prior to use with these new discs.
