115D region free help

#1

Hi,
I got a replacement for my “buggy” LiteOn, and now I have a Pioneer 115D…
I have the latest fw 1.18 from the official site, but cannot find any tool to make it region free.

I tried also MCSE tool, but I could not find out if or how to use it for this purpose.

I know there are surely 1000 places to look for info, but I could not find any help :sad:

Any help please? the MCSE is maybe the tool, but I cannot find a way to do it.

Regards

download the 1.18 firmware from the new firmware section, unpack with winrar or winzip, load the flasher into MCSE, select the allow same to same flashing box and save as the original file name, then load the firmware file into MCSE, and tick RPC1, any the other two if required, and again save as the original file name, now run the flasher, and follow the prompts

or you can use DVRFlash

Thanks for the answer…
I could not unerstand the MCSE guide…

I hope you can make it easier than now… I would like not to brick my drive already on day 1.

I have downloaded and unzipped the flasher
I Have MSCE

Then… I need the help… idiot proof :slight_smile:

To make it region free, do I have to choose rpc1?

Regards

@ bimbobo,

I believe Forum Member PumaUK #2 is straightforward.

Have you reviewed the CD Freaks Pioneer Read First posting titled “MediaCodeSpeedEdit support for Pioneer DVD-Writers” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/mediacodespeededit-support-pioneer-dvd-writers-153213) and/or the Media Code Speed Edit HomePage (http://ala42.cdfreaks.com/MCSE)?

RPC-1 = Region Free

Hi :slight_smile:
@ bimbobo is this any help for you?

Whilst primarily talking about bitsetting, you’ll see on page 2 (in the image of MCSE with Pioneer f/w loaded) that the box for RPC1 patch is visble just check this box alone for RPC1.
Of course you can, either add the Readspeed or Bitsetting options (even both) @ the same time.

Soory to sound like an idiot, but I have no file to load in MCSE…

The drive came with the same firmware I could find in Pioneer site 1.18

So when I try to flash, it said, latest fw is already used…

Which file should I load in MCSE?

That’s the point where I cannot proceed.

Regards

@ bimbobo,

It appears that you have failed to patch the Flasher with the “Same To Same” patch.

As Forum Member PumaUK states in posting #2 both the Flasher and the Firmware needs to patched. The Flasher is patched with the “Same To Same” patch and the Firmware patched with the “RPC1” (Region Free) patch.

Hi :slight_smile:
Use the link in my previous post.
Page 3 tells you how to overcome this.
It is known as patching the flasher, as opposed to patching the actual f/w.

What is it useful for? Sorry … someone will begin to laugh, but I really do not know what it is :slight_smile:

@ bimbobo,

Perhaps reviewing postings in the CD Freaks DVD Burner Forum, using Google Search (http://www.google.com), and/or WikiPedia (http://en.wikipedia.org) will get you up to speed with Book Type BitSetting of DVD+R Media to DVD-ROM.

As a start suggest reviewing the Forum link provide by Forum member pinto2 the below WikiPedia Web Link ->

Hi guys,
thanks for the links…

Well I am not an expert like most of the members here :wink:

I am sure all the answers are in this forum, but it’s hard to find them. When you find it, then it’s hard to “get it” first time, like in the case with the MCSE settings.

Be patient, people like me sometimes needs to help others (my son in my case) with games and other stuff.

So I come to you guys, when all the rest failed :slight_smile: and until now, this forum has never let me me and my son down.

He is 7… so I’m the only one who can take him out of PC troubles…

Thanks again.
Regards
