Will this firmware work with the Cendyne DVR-105 DVD-RW drive? I heard this drive is exactly the same drive as the Pioneer A05/105. Also, how do you know if the Ritek is G03? I was browsing through some DVD-R media sites and they don't post whether the Ritek is G03. Am I to assume that all Ritek 1x are G03? Thanks.

I am using it on the Cendyne105. The Riteks with GO3 are the ones that everyone has that say 1x/2x (on some dvd burners). I have only tested one disc but it burned fine at 2x. I am going to try it out more extensively and I will let you know raiden1817. I hope this helps.
