Rimage Everest 600 & 400 Printer Ribbon Update

Rimage started shipping the new CMY II Ribbon a few months back. The new part number is 2002161 and it replaces the former ribbon part number 2001480 for Everest 400 and Everest 600 printers. The new CMY 2 ribbon is designed to offer broader media compatibility and better optimization for printed colors (mainly better blue and purple color fills).

There are new firmware updates for both the Everest 600 and Everest 400. If your printer is on a Producer (6100n, 7100n, 8100n, 5300n, or 5100n) or Professional system (5400n, 5410n, 3400 & 3410 models). You will also need to install Rimage Producer Software version 8.2 – 8.5 Service Pack 2. This updates color settings for the new CMY II ribbons.

Call Techware (1-800-295-0083 x-13) if you have any questions or need any assistance with your Rimage printer(s) or disc publisher(s).

Save Money Using the Bravo SE CD/DVD Printer

Did you know that if you have a Primera Bravo SE made after January 2008 that you can use the much larger and more cost effective Primera 53335 ink color cartridge instead of the Primera 53332?

Advantage = much lower cost per print.

If you are not sure when your Bravo SE Disc Duplicator was manufactured simply try the larger BravoPro 53335 color cartridge. If it doesn’t work then simply download the appropriate printer driver and firmware update here.
