ASUS DVD-E616 and RPC-1 firmware

  Happy37 13:09 11 Jan 05

I'm sending this to ask if someone would be able to clarify for me as to what is the correct firmware file that I would have to download.

This is for the ASUS DVD-E616 DVD ROM drive that I have in my home PC. The firmware revision number is 2.1, and it has a 512Kb data buffer.

Looking at other websites, I see that there are 3 firmware revision versions to choose from to make the drive region free/RPC-1.

Which would be the correct one to do the above? - please could you advise accordingly.

Is it the one labelled "RPC-1 2.0", and does it work correctly?

I've also heard stories that the 2.2 version does not work and should be avoided at all costs - is this correct?

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Thanks for any help and suggestions that will be provided.
