Lg Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8161b


i would just like to know if this drive is capable of reading dvd movies with either alcohol or dvd decrypter to image file(s) onto the hard drive with its standard firmware? or would i need to change/ update the firmware to make it work?

thanx for any replies…

sorry guys and gals… i found that the dvd(s) were actually damaged, although they did not look like it. i let the thing run for hours and found that thousands of unrecoveravle sectors were found. i cancelled it. i then tried another movie and ripped it clean, and got no bad sectors. fookin strange!!!

its a new drive, i’d like to know how i can unlock it (to make it completely region free). are there ways? can someone assist me?
