Actually, I do not know of any new drive with RPC1 “support”. To quote a previous post on the matter…[QUOTE=cvs;2672081]… Therefore, I’m afraid you’ll have to use AnyDVD or a similar piece of software if you want to get around region coding.[/QUOTE]
Maybe the best you could do is get a genuine LiteOn drive and use one of the older tools to attempt to disable RPC2 or reset the counter, or get a (not longer produced) Optiarc full-sized DVDRW with auto-reset firmware.
[QUOTE=Yirg;2727363]Albert, is there any other current drive you’re aware of that has good audio ripping capability and an available RPC1 patch?
As for the audio ripping capability: many people here stick to their old drives for ripping, so I’m not sure if we have any recent information about drives and their audio ripping. Traditionally, for reading in general, Samsung and LiteOn have been good, and the recently discontinued Optiarc drives have been picky but still very useful.
I wonder if drive databases for stuff like AccurateRip have newer drives in them…
