i just bought the nec 3500A from newegg, from the reviews i read the riplock on the nec limits the read speed only way around it is a firmware. when ripping a dvd on average how long would it take before removing and after removing the riplock? im just worried about flashing the drive since it might damage it but i was recommended to read the dvd with a dvd-rom then burn with the NEC so no flashing required. btw is it true that when ripping the dvd with the nec then burning the quality of the copy isnt good? im getting the drive tomorrow any suggestions on the exact firmware i should flash to or how i should rip the dvds with the original nec firmware? ive looked at rpc1’s site on the NEC 3500a but not sure which one to flash to.
btw from the previous threads what is the bitsetting that some people are worried about?
