#1

I have old Acer Notebook with external Slim Initio CD-RW CRX830E Combo Drive. May I know where can I find firmware to flash it to region free.
I can’t find the firmware for regional free. It left 1 chance of changing region.
Can anyone forward me firmware?

Please advised me what i can do.

This http://tdb.rpc1.org/ i can’t find CRX830E firmware

Hi and Welcome!

this drive is expected to be a Liteon clone, so LtnRPC should work, normally.

@ monsterinc,

Your DiscInfo output data is in fact not “Inaccurate”. The “RPC2 SCHEME: NO” information in fact truly indicates that your CD-RW CRX830E Drive is in fact “Region Free”. Once again your CD-RW CRX830E Drive is in fact “Region Free”. Your “Region Free” problem lies in your failure to completely remove the Windows Operating System and the DVD viewing/playback software program Regions System Protections remaining in your Computer. That is why you need to use a software program similar to ‘RegionKiller’ or ‘AnyDVD’ to bypass the remaining Windows Operating System and DVD viewing/playback software program Regions System Protections.

Suggest reviewing your “Help with Initio CD-RW CRX830E firmware” (http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=44683&p=217123#p217123) posting in the Firmware Page Forum posting for detailed information explaining what your “Region Free” problem is and how to correct it.
