I would rather say that Nic Wilson has contributed a lot towards NuTech to enable them to add this facility to their drives and they should be paying him for his contribution. Others that are following on from this are only duplicating something that was originaly Nic Wilson's ideasrdgrimes wrote:Before everyone starts lining up to pat NicW on the back, he is only implimenting what has been "given" to him by NuTech.
CDSpeed will soon have the same functions and tests available as well..

The delay in getting the Nu tools out is due to a bug in the firmware that has been found. Yes, Nu are working on it. ^_^
If the drive has trouble tracking the disc, the returned "current address" value becomes invalid, making it difficult for the application to follow where it is. Work arounds? Well, doing another wobbleseek can assist but can cause the drive to end up in a hung state. This is being worked on with them also.
Work is being carried out in changing both the app and then, getting Nu to change the firmware so this does not occur. Seems to happen on very bad media only. A suitable workaround for current firmwares is being designed.
