    Hey guys,

    Have any of you tried the firmware that is found in http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=38176&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=75 and tested to see if it works? There are quite a few people on there that posted that it succeeded, but I would like to know if anyone I know has tried it before I fry my DVD-RW drive, even-though I hate Mat****a, it is the only drive that is small enough to fit in a MacBook Pro, so getting a replacement is not an option :(

    That is why I want independent verification.

    My pioneer DVD rom and an LG DVD-RW are RPC1 with change counter reset built in :)

    Though the rom drive I gave to a friend at work and the burner laser failed :)

    every burner I have used (except my most recent) has been flashed from firmware there and it always worked great.

    Might want to look the drive model up at club.cdfreaks.com and see what others have done with the drive.
