had 1.UF firmware installed then tried 3.04btfast (riplock removed) and it still limited to 8x ripping. im 110% positive i selected the riplock removed version of firmware both times, but when i try to rip with dvddecrypter it says this:

W 19:16:10 [0:0:0] _NEC DVD_RW ND-3520AW 3.04 (G:) (ATA) - Selected Read Speed: 22,160 KB/s (16x)
W 19:16:10 [0:0:0] _NEC DVD_RW ND-3520AW 3.04 (G:) (ATA) - Actual Read Speed: 11,080 KB/s (8x)

also tried SPTI and Nero’s Aspi still no lock

Sorry, that’s as fast as it goes with the riplock removed. If you want faster you need a Liteon 16P9S , or an AOpen 1648 AAP, or a BenQ 1620, or a Pioneer 109, or a Liteon 1693, or a host of others.

7X max rip speed on a Double Layer pressed DVD-Video with RIPLOCK removed.
16X max rip speed on a Single Layer pressed DVD-Video with RIPLOCK removed.

Check out the FAQ for more info.

Very wide range, from 12X to 14.7X or so.


#7

BenQ 1640 with speedpatch goes up to 15.5x and rips full DVD-9 in less than 9:30 mins.
