#1

Im just curious but is there a easy way for me to patch firmware to overspeed KIC made DVD-Rs?? What would I need regarding skill, tools or equippment??
Dont know if you get them in anyother place than Japan but these are really good discs sold at a very good price over here.
Thanks in advance,
Koba
