SCSI DVD ROM rip faster than 2x?

Hi,

I am searching for a SCSI DVD-ROM drive which can rip DVD Movies faster than 2x. Can someone please give me a hint for a good drive?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

Hi there and be welcome,

As a matter of fact, about all DVDROM drive can do this, be it SCSI or ATAPI. Problem is that a lot of DVDROM drives are locked by firmware to limit the ripspeed at 2x. By installing unofficial firmwares, these limits can be removed. Surf to http://www.rpc1.org to find these firmwares!

It may be hard to find a SCSI DVDROM nowadays. I doubt if there still are any brands that make SCSI DVDROMs. You could look if anybody still has drives like the Pioneer 112s (if I remember correctly) or so in stock. Chances are big that they will be expensive though… (or check eBay?).

Isn’t IDE an option for you? As a former SCSI user, I know it’s hard to let go of that superb system…
