I recently bought a dvd rom Samsung SH-D162c
but after some hours I realize that the maximun read speed of DVD-R/+R are set by default to 6x max. Strange isn’t it ?
I found this same problem with an Aopen and a Nec, because they are both similar to Liteon I was able to change their original firmware with omnipatch and increase the read speed for +R/-R media and even for RW ones.
But unfortunately I can’t find the solution for my samsung : so please help me or just tell me what to do.
and thks a lot
So far that seems to be impossible.
Yeah, I’m stuck with the same drive right now, 100% useless for me because there is no way to unlock the read speed. This drive was offered to me by some nerd who thinks he’s keen on optical drives
Fortunately, I have more reading drives than I need (;)) so it’s no big deal for me, but sorry for you [B]labo_2000[/B], I’ve searched extensively and couldn’t find a way to unlock the drive so I guess you’ll have to buy another drive if you need one for ripping. Check that the model is not locked or that it can be unlocked easily before buying
thanks francksoy for your support
I know now that the Aopen 1648l rpo and the nec dv5800e can be easily read unlocked with flashutility and omnipatch
but do u know another ones that are read unlocked by default ?
and thx again.
Not among current drives, sorry… (not that there are none, just that I’m not sure!)
