MCSE 184.108.40.206 27 Dec 2010
- added support for PIONEER DVR-219L 1.01 (QSI DDW-242S clone)
I have 220.127.116.11 and it wouldn't recognize the PIONEER-DVR-219L 1.01 firmware I tried to load into it
This page: http://ala42.cdfreaks.com/MCSE/
It says it is a supported drive if you scan down the list mine is there. I'm puzzled really I am.

unless something changed, it may not give you full access to the drive. Bootcamp however does. Wine also if I remember.fahrenheit wrote:Ok thanks I'll try first with Parallels and it that fails try to find someone with a Windows box not a laptop. Now that will be harder than finding this firmware for a Mac user. I'll post my results in any case so others benefit from my tests.
My drive has v1.02 firmware from the factory so something must have changed so the QSI clone MCSE supported 1.01 firmware capable of being changed to RPC1 isn't being recognized as compatible firmware. Does that sound logical? I suppose I'll need to wait until the newest v1.02 firmware is supported in an updated version of MCSE

But in the meantime does anyone with skills and knowledge have any idea is there is a cross flashing option I could try to get me to RPC1? I spent an hour looking on this site and web searching many keywords and I didn't find a thing myself.
I'm feeling more confident now after not having done any flashing for 2-3 years. Having this new intel Mac Pro allows me to do Mac and Windows procedures right here without having to locate a Windows box somewhere else which is cool and simpler. You guys have been very helpful with advice and commandline info. I hope there will be or is something else I can do to get to RPC1. This QSI clone stuff is all new and it is too bad as well for Pioneers were to me the very best drives. Now holding an old 116D in 1 hand and this new 219L in the other you can feel how the quality has diminished and then the clone thing too. It's a real shame I had no info on this before I bought both.
If you could buy any new drive right now what brand and model would that be which is simple and easy to flash to RPC1? I'd really like your expert input .
