Rosewill Firmware

Does ayone now if there is any firmware hacks/updates to increse rip speed on a rosewill combo 52cdr 16dvd-rom drive???

Never heard of Rosewill until I saw them at Newegg. What is this brand? :confused:

Could you post some information about this drive? Use DISCInfo’s show summary report to get infromation about the drive for posting.

It will be a rebadged drive from some other manufacturer, we definately need to know what the true manufacturer of the drive is before we can tell you about any firmwares.

With Dvd Infor Pro Is Has Aopen In The Drive Name
Poss Aopen Rebadge??

Yes, it’s possible. Please post the Show Summary information from DISCInfo for the drive.

It is probably either a Aopen COM5224/AAH or a Aopen COM5232 depending on the maximum rewriting speed for CD-RW media. Is your Rosewill 32x or 24x for CD-RW’s? Do you see any model number similar to the ones above printed on the label anywhere or even in the Device ID in DISCInfo?

The Rosewill 52x32x52x16 combo-drive I have is an Aopen COM5232 rebadged. I flashed mine with the Aopen 1.10 version although it’s still a poor reader. Very slow and errors out on DVD’s. If someone can provide some sort of rip-lock fix for this drive it’d be much appreciated. Seems it only likes disc that are in pristine condition. :frowning:

It is an awesome cd-burner however so that is one plus in its favor.

quick bump because this drive just got alot cheaper through newegg, 30 bucks shipped. But likes other have said its slow as crap ripping dvd’s. I have applied the 1.10g firmware but it is still weak, is there a modd out there? Even a simple something to remove the rip lock would be awesome!

Thanks
