AFAIK there is no way of removing the riplock on this drive.

Riplock is a speed restriction placed on the drive by the manufacturer.
Some are as low as x3 > x5. But you could have higher.
If a drive goes upto x12 it is said to have no riplock.
But with speedpatching (with ala42’s [ :bow: ] MediaCodeSpeedEdit) I have got speeds of upto 16X on pressed DL.

-Download MediaCodeSpeedEdit here:
http://ala42.cdfreaks.com/MCSE/

-Download the firmware dump here:
http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/lg/dvdrw/stock/GH20NS10_EL00.exe

-Apply the “Increase Read Speed” patch on the firmware

-Upgrade the firmware

Et Voila.

Welcome onboard edgardz. :iagree: :clap:
Thanks for the info.
Although I have a LG GSA-H62N, I haven’t done much with it (use it in stock form).
Although I do use ala42’s ( :bow: ) MCSE quite a bit. :doh:
(Mainly with BenQ’s & Pioneer).

Thanks zebadee.

I’m currently ripping a DVD-Video with my GH20NS10 @ 14.6 MB/s … not bad.

Not bad at all. :cool:
I might try it out on my 62 over the w/e. :iagree:


#8

i’m currently ripping dl disks in about 11 min’s each now better than my nec which would take 19 min’s… and I’m getting good burns at 18 and 20 X on my current no name media where I couldn’t get working burns over 12x on my nec… so far i’m very happy with this burner.


#9

I would assume that the LG is not restricted to the same speed as the NEC.
If you want know if your drive is riplocked (or not).
Just do a TransferRateTest using CD/DVCDSpeed.
It will show the minimum/maximum speeds.

If I am not mistaken my LGH42N was a pretty good reader with stock firmware, I think it reads at 12X without any patch. I dont have it installed anymore so I cant check LOL.
