I have an iMac (iMac7,1, Intel Core 2 Duo) with the following DVD: OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5630A. It’s running under Mac OS X 10.6.1
I tried a few days ago to make my dvd region free by using the “necflash” utility. As my driver was in the list of supported drivers (http://binflash.cdfreaks.com/#drivelist) , I decided to try this out. As indicated, I first scanned my adapters for valid devices:
The output given was the following one:
List of supported devices:
Device : A:
Vendor : OPTIARC
Model : DVD RW AD-5630A
Firmware : 1AHM
I then backed up my current firmware by issueing the following command:
./necflash -dump oldFirmware.bin A:
Downloaded the RPC1 firmware corresponding to my device (http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/Optiarc-AD-5630A/)
I then then issued the following command:
./necflash -flash newFirmware.bin A:
The command ended without an error but since then, my DVD is not working at all anymore, it doesn’t recognize when I try to insert a disc or anything else.
Could anyone help me with this?
