    Hi all,

    I'm sure I had fixed this already, but popping in an old DVD I get that RPC1 pop up..

    My drive is Matshita uj8e2q. I think the RPC1.com site recommended in the pop up is not working correctly?

    Would help a lot if someone could point me in the right direction for the firmware to get AnyDVD to work with this drive (i'm sure it has in the past).

    Cheers

    You can try this but I have no clue if it works with your drive:

    RPC1.org is not being maintained anymore. Guys like ala42 and xvi worked on rpc1 firmware for Matshita drives in the old days. So you can try to google for them and your firmware.

    You know - on a second thought... These DVD drives are dirt cheap today. Just get rid of that Matshita and buy a new one that doesn't have the particular RPC issues. Or upgrade to a BluRay / UHD drive anyway. DVD resolution is outdated and BluRay / UHD is far better.

    True true, I'll have to see what's available in my area. It's just my Dads laptop. I'm sure I had patched it years ago though lol
