LG WH08LS20 Rip lock

Will MCSE speed up just the dvd read speed or both the dvd read speed and blu ray read speed? I read that this drive had riplock on it which limited it to 4.8 speed on dvds, so I was curious as to whether or not it will fix both dvd and blu ray rip speeds…thanks in advance…


#2

one other question…If i flash the drive with MCSE, and a new firmware comes out, will flashing the drive with the new firmware just over write the firmware written by MCSE?


#3

DVD and BD riplock patch is supported for the WH08. If you flash an official firmware, these features are gone again.


#4

i tried the patch with 2.0 firmware, and it seemed that the riplock was not removed…reading a dvd is still very slow…

Post the result of a cdspeed burst rate test.

The burst rate is ok. Post the graph of a transfer rate test.

here is the result

And where is the slow reading you talked about ? Everything is fine with your drive.


#10

maybe its just me…it just seemed slow with some dvds…


#11

Post a TRT of a slow disk. 4:44 to read a SL disk is fast.

ALA42,

Thank you for MCSE and all of the information about using MCSE and FLASHER. I was able to double my TRT speeds on two LG drives (wh12ls30 and wh12ls38) that I have by removing RIPLOCK and re-flashing the drives.
