Disable riplock for liteon 5232k combo

I couldn’t find a thread that addressed this, so I thought I’d ask:

Is there a firmware that can disable the riplock on a Liteon 5232k combo drive? When I back-up movies it is way faster to use my ND-3500A with LD v1 f/w to rip and burn, but more convenient to use the 2 drives (AnyDVD/CloneDVD2). Is there a way to speed up the read on the litey? :cool:
