Still no avail. =(
im using the power dvd9 that was bundled with the drive.
Here is what i did till now though. i downloaded firmware versions available from rpc1.org (both 1.00-00 and 1.00-03), plus MCSE 188.8.131.52. I loaded each of the firmware.exe files into MCSE what let me check the box for RPC-2 autoreset. and then ran the "speedpatched" exe.
