Michael I am evidently Blind but every time I try to find a Link to Download this cdfreaks.com sends me somewhere else. I have been looking for about a days and still have not been able to Understand How this system works. ALL I am looking for is a DOWNLOADABLE Patch that I can tell it to DOWNLOAD and it will listen to me. I am Sorry because you have tried and I am ready to stop using my account and having it removed. I can’t seem to Understand how to work with this kind of system.

As instructed in the ChatBox when trying to help you…

Download the Patch Utility for Samsung drives: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/patch-utility-samsung-mtk-based-dvd-writers-v3-2-1-new-242508/

Download the stock SS01 firmware for your drive: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/sony/dvdrw/stock/840A.SS01.stock.rar

Read up on how to flash a Samsung drive, and get SFDNWIN [if you actually read the thread, there is a link to it]: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/howto-flash-firmware-samsung-dvd-writer-231217/

Use the Patch Utility to patch your firmware so that it’s RPC1. Then flash following the instructions in the HOWTO that was linked above. Good luck.

And before you ask, your drive is a rebadged Samsung. I have done the process before on the drive. :wink:
