LG GSA-H42N Buffalo RJ11 firmware release



Buffalo released the RJ11 firmware for their DVSM-XH1218 drive. Here is the first media code list. Looks like they disabled some MIDs like YUDEN000 T02 with a ‘A_’ prefix…

Hm, some 20x media? But H42N is only a 18x writer, right?

And are you sure you pasted the right media list? I do not get the same list when downloading that firmware and open it with MSCE


The table was made with the speed id interpretation used in the previous firmwares. Looks like LG increased the higher speed ids up one level, but I have to check that in detail.


Thanks for the info ala42. :slight_smile:


Will this work on US H42N Drives?

Can’t someone now hack this to remove the rip speed lock?


At least it works on drives with RL firmwares after a crossflash patch is applied to the flasher.

Can’t someone now hack this to remove the rip speed lock?
Someone already did but you will have to wait about 1-2 weeks before it is released so the other patches and open issues can be tested and fixed.


have you tested the 20x burn speeds?


As already said in post #3, LG changed the internal speed coding in the H42 firmware, so the media table listing is not correct.


not according to this.

anyway. have you tested it’s writing and reading with riplock removed? etc?


maybe you should first ask if he has a GSA-H42N ^^


he’s smart he’d know it’s implied


what’s the difference between RJ and RL fw?


The media code list in the first post has been updated and should show the correct speeds now. Please report if there are still errors.


will it have rpc1 also?


I have tried looking for a crossflash patch for the flasher but haven’t been able to find one. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks.


You have to ask TDB for a RPC1 patched firmware.


Welcome to cdfreaks :slight_smile:
The upcoming GSA-H42N support in MCSE will include a crossflash feature.


already did


read speed patch option is still not selectable. maybe i need another fw download?


I saw the new support in MCSE for GSA-H42N. Thank you! The only problem is that I cannot figure out how to create firmware that will flash my RL00 drive? Can you help? Thanks again.
