I was wondering if Binflash support for the BC-5550H-01 is coming?
Here is the laptop bluray reader in uk for Â£33.58: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/sony-bc-5550h-01-6x-sata-slim-blu-ray-reader-dvdplus-rw-burner-optical-drive
No firmware updates available on sony site.
Can Binflash create an ID file for this drive?
Since it also does not work on other Blu-Ray drives, it is quite unlikely that Binflash will be able to dump the current firmware. These drives simply do not provide commands to dump the firmware.
Oh i see I haven't bought this drive I was wondering if it had support as i'm thinking about buying a bluray reader for my laptop.
I guess the only support I can offer with Binflash is setting booktype on DVD+R DL and resetting the region code - both should work out of the box if it's drive based on a NEC (or rather Renesas) chipset with the old command set.
Are there any laptop bluray readers that you can hack the firmware to make them multiregion for blurays too?
Multi-Region on Blu-Rays is not handled by the drive but by software. So this is something I cannot do.
Anyway, I have not been able to modify the firmware for a single Blu-Ray drive due to the used encryption.
