Do i have to use RPC-1 fw? on my 203B

I am new to DVD burn and recently build new system. After reading all reviews, i bought samsung Sh-S203B drive. I don’t know what FW is running? I will check it today.

I read FAQ on Samsung and one section on RPC-1.

Do i need to use RPC-1 FW on Sh-S203B? or just use regular SB01.

What does RPC-1 provide?

Thanks.

Hi :slight_smile:
Welcome onboard aggie123. :iagree: :clap:
Using rpc1 f/w with your drive is just part of the process for ‘region-free’.
Your Operating System & possibly your DVD related s/w will still be region set.
Hence s/w like AnyDVD. This acts in a way that the drive & OS etc all act as though ‘region-free’.
With a new drive you may want to stick with Samsung ‘official’ f/w. They have their own f/w update program to make it as easy as it can be.

Thanks for quick update…
I will stick with SB01 (orig) one…
What about registry edit?
what changes do i need to make for running quailty scan?

I am using Nero 6.0.XX.XX…

Thx.

Hi :slight_smile:
Reg hack;
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ahead\Nero Toolkit\CD Speed\CD Quality]
“Blocked”=“SAMSUNG,TSST,HL-DT-ST,PLEXTOR”

Right click on Blocked & go to edit.
Remove SAMSUNG and TSST.

In case some of you don’t know how to get to the registry. In ‘Run’ box with Windows pre Vista type " regedit" Without the “” & press enter.
In Vista the search box just above the Start button. Same method.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Nero [version #]\Nero Toolkit\CD Speed\CD Quality]
“Blocked”=“SAMSUNG,TSST,HL-DT-ST,PLEXTOR”

Right click on Blocked & go to edit.
Remove SAMSUNG and TSST.
