BTC 1004 and rip speed



I’d like to know if there is a read speed limit at 2x in this drive (as I suppose) and if it is what is the way to remove it (if possible, of course).


I’ve noticed riplocks at 2X with several original DVD-Videos too (I have a 1004 myself).
I asked TDB ( for a rip-unlocked version of the firmware and have been sent a test version of firmware V0250. Haven’t tested it yet. I have to send him the results to verify it works ok.

If any of you want to volunteer too, I can send you a copy of it.


i will give it a try, please send me a mail



Sent. Please inform.


I’ve just verified that the TDB version doesn’t improve a thing.
