    NEC ND3500AG - can riplock be disabled?

    Can riplock be disabled using firmware updates as I got one today and its a great drive just shame that I can't rip above 2x and as I like to have an image of my fav DVDs on my system it takes a while to rip em

    I have got one at the mo that allows for up to 5x but tops out at around 2.4/2.3x.

    Shame cos my old Liteon ripped at 9x!

    Yeah, there are plenty of patched firmwares around. The 2.18 is the latest, although I've not bothered to update to it yet, probably will when I get some new discs.

    Well, choose a version (general speaking later is better, but check the forums there for exact differences), download, and read the file named README inside.

    If you want to do it with no hasle, download the windows version, and it'll flash it within windows. Or you can go the hardcore way, and do it in DOS.

    All the files have README's in them. So if your not sure, check those.
