Thanks. I found this thread, which offers a lot of good info:
First question: Can I damage my drive by using this hacked firmware? Can I ever apply "normal" Lite-On firmware updates in the future, after using the hacked kind?
Second question: When I run OmniPatcher with the RK07 patched firmware loaded, I see a tab called "General Patches" that allows me to set DVD read speeds. How do I know what the maximum supported read speeds on my drive are? For example, it tells me that the "DVD+/-R" speed is set to "8x" right now, but the dropdown list value goes up to 16x. Does that mean my drive can read at 16x, or that the dropdown list just happens to go that high (does that make sense)?
