Yep, just ran the LDW851FP tool on the US0G.bin file and viola, working drive again! THANKS!!!
Does having an incorrect EEPROM checksum ruin the drive in anyway? Is there anything I should be worried about here? (besides not being able to flash the drive without running the tool to get rid of the EEPROm check)
Just wondering.. I should still have all my write capabilities? I haven't tried yet. I'm just happy I can read CDs now :bigsmile:
Thanks for all your guys' help! Hopefully this thread helps someone else hehe..
BTW, LTNRPC works with the 812s (doesn't kill it.. as far as I can see hehe)

[B]Should work. As I understand it (someone please correct me if I am mistaken), the area that RPCDE overwrites is just the checksum area, so disabling the EEPROM checksum check will fix the problem.
Also, EEPROMs vary from drive to drive and is unique to each drive. The two ways to fix this would be to rechecksum your 812S EEPROM or to just disable the EEPROM checksum check. The latter is easier, as the tool is freely & publically available (if you want to rechecksum, you'll have to ask around, and even then, I don't know if a 812S checksummer exists; I know that 851, 811, and 832 checksummers exist, but not sure about 812).
