Riplock remove for NEC PATA AD-7200A (rev 1.5)

Has anyone been able to speed up the rip feature for this CD/DVD burner? I understand that certain firmware upgrades enable overriding the slow read speed that occurs when the disk has a /VIDEO_TS directory, to make it painfully slow to rip one of these video type disks. A patched firmware version for this drive would make it more useful for making backups of my DVDs.

Here you can find several patched firmwares for the drive. And although it’s not explicitely mentioned, the RPC1 and AUTO-Reset firmwares also disable the routine that checks for the VIDEO_TS folder. However I was not aware that this drive still reduces speed on discs with such a folder.
