I got the Pioneer DVR-112D and have cross flashed to Pioneer DVR-112L @ 8.25 firmware. How do I set my drive to RPC1 and is that what I want?

Thanks

What is the drive default setting? I dont know much about RPC1 etc.

A little more help please.

Hi :slight_smile:
Default will be rpc2.
chef is pointing that you can use MCSE* to make the patched f/w rpc1.
Remember you would still need to use s/w to make your PC ‘region free’.
Basically rpc2 chooses a region, hence your OS or the s/w you use to play DVD’s asking you to set the region, if one hasn’t already been selected.
With rpc1 however. It means the drive no longer makes any choices in respect of region.
This still leaves the OS &/or the s/w used for playing said DVD, in need of some way to bypass such requirements.
Therefore many folk use AnyDVD or similar.

Im sorry I am still not sure whats going on. Will the RPC have any effect on my burns?

The only thing I have done is flashed over to 112L 8.25 with Koba’s flash package. I have no idea how to do the RPC patch or whatever.

What about read speed? My 112L is also reading very slow. But, I am getting great burns right now so I don’t want to mess something up.

I do have AnyDVD so how do I set that up to make RPC free?

Thanks

You need to review the “MediaCodeSpeedEdit support for Pioneer DVD-Writers” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/mediacodespeededit-support-pioneer-dvd-writers-153213/) thread. This thread provides ALL the necessary information on how to use the Media Code Speed Edit tool to patch the Firmware to allow “Increases ReadSpeed”, “RPC-1 Region Free”, and “Enable BitSetting”.

It also appears the you need to review the AnyDVD User Guide ->

RegionCodeProtection is not related to burnings, only to reading attempts of region-coded VideoDVDs.

Well for some reason I cannot get the 8.25 firmware to unpack with winrar. It is is giving me the actual firmware but no file to modify.

I dont reall care about the read speed, but do I need to change RPC1? Or will AnyDVD take care of this.

No one here can know what you want. As long as you do not even see any problem with your drive, do not change anything.

Ala42. I believe I worded it wrong. I didn’t mean what I wanted, I meant is that what I am suppose to have? Even after reading up on this RPC I still do not know what it is. I was asking if I am supposed to be RPC1.

@ BoSox2882,

It appears you are unaware of exactly what RPC-1 actually means.

Perhaps it would be helpful if you reviewed the follow ->

Also have you reviewed the AnyDVD User Guide which in my #6 posting provide the Web Link which will provides the answer to your AnyDVD question asked in your #8 posting. ->

Untill you have a better understanding leave it at default which is RPC-2 which means do nothing.

As ALA42 said if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.


#13

I understand the situation but cannot get it to flash over because the firmware will not unpack.

I am not worried about, My Pio 112L is burning great and AnyDVD removes RPC code anyway.

@ BoSox2882,

Are you using the most current up to date WinRar v3.71 (http://www.rarlab.com) to extract/uncompress the Buffalo DVR-112L v8.25 Firmware?

Are you sure that your Buffalo DVR-112L v8.25 Firmware file is not damaged? Suggest re-downloading the Buffalo DVR-112L v8.25 Firmware file again ->

http://buffalo.jp/php/ldl.php?to=hd/dvsmxl1218_825.exe

If you use the above download Link you will end up with a file named “dvsmxl1218_825.exe”. Use WinRar 3.71 to extract/uncompress the “dvsmxl1218_825.exe” file which results in a Folder named “DVSMXL1218”. In the Folder named “DVSMXL1218” there is a file named “DVR112L_OIN_FW825EUJ.EXE”. Use WinRar v3.71 to extract/uncompress the “DVR112L_OIN_FW825EUJ.EXE” file which results in two files named “A0413541.825” and “R12LOIN.exe”. Then using MCSE patch the “A0413541.825” Firmware File with the “Increase Read Speed/RPC1 Patch/Enable BitSetting” patches. Then using MCSE patch the “R12LOIN.exe” Flasher with the “Allow Same To Same Flashing” patch. Then flash your DVR-112 with the patched “A0413541.825” Firmware File and the patched “R12LOIN.exe” Flasher.

Thank you very much. I have everything done except for the final flash. I have the A0413541.825_speedpatched file. Should I put this and the new R12LOIN.exe file in a separate folder and then flash the .exe? Will the speedpatched file be attached to this?

@ BoSox2882,

It is evident the you have not reviewed the CD Freak Pioneer Read First posted titled “MediaCodeSpeedEdit support for Pioneer DVD-Writers” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/mediacodespeededit-support-pioneer-dvd-writers-153213) thread as suggested in posting #6 or read any of the other CD Freaks Pioneer DVD Burner Forum threads concerning CrossFlashing the DVR-112D with Buffalo Firmware.

Put both the patched “A0413541.825” Firmware File and the patched “R12LOIN.exe” Flasher in a Folder. Ensure that you remove the “speedpatched” annotation from both the “A0413541.825” Firmware File and “R12LOIN.exe” Flasher renaming the files to the exact name of the original unpatched Files. Then Flash your DVR-112 Drive with these patched files.

Regards,
bjkg

@ bjkg

Hello, I have revived this, cause I finally got around to finishing flashing my Pioneer drive. I did as you said above, and patched the firmware. I put the new speed patched files in their own folder, and re-named to originial. Double clicked R12LOIN.exe and flashed to new firmware.

However, the problem is, the drive appears to still be riplocked. I just tried ripping a disc and the average read rate was 2.7.

Is this normal? Or did this flash wrong?
