View Full Version : DVD drive on my laptop
03-26-2006, 09:49 AM
So apparently it could only change DVD-region a set number of times. And now I used them up. Is there any way I can download something to circumvent this stupidity? :(:(:(

Yes, I'm sure there is.
Huh? Oh, no, sorry. I have no clue how.
Some firmware update I believe. I'm not sure where from or what.

help me lollol. I am in over my head.
My laptop is an acer (this probably isn't relevant.)
My dvd drive is a
Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K12RA
I wasn't able to find this on the site linked. Am I missing something?

Apparently the DVR k13RA is known. But there is no firmware available. lol wtf. tizz porn to anyone who can offer helpful information.
p.s. not really, srylol.
And I suppose this would be in Danish then:

will it continue to work after the trial version?
Erm... crack it? Relatively easy to find. Works fine for me.

I must underline the fact that I am completely incompetent with regards to computers.
So I just need to download a crack?

Thanks! you can remove everything!
03-26-2006, 10:52 AM
Your clothes. What else would I be talking about?
There's nothing to remove! ;)

I hate when they say "MAY DESTROY YOUR DVD DRIVE!"
It kills. It really does.

I just started making DVDs on my laptop finally. It's a fuckin' bitch encoding 2-3hr video clips into mpeg-2 dvd burnable format and then taking the Video_TS folder that comes from that and turning it into a disk image and THEN burning that onto a DVD-R movie disc. Takes all fuckin' day, I swear.
Why do you burn in into an image file and directly to the dvd?
03-26-2006, 02:12 PM
Actually, I used to turn it into an image file, but I dowloaded DVD2OneX and that just takes the Video_TS folder and burns it straight and makes a complete DVD of it.
I used to use disk images on Apple's Disk Utility because I didn't know what the fuck I was doing though.
Or are you asking something else? I may be stupid/confused.
No I was asking you. But yeah, the whole MPG/AVI to DVD process is a bitch.

It really is a pain. But ffmpegX on Mac OS X kinda solves everything by being an all in one video and audio joiner/encoder/EVERYTHING. It's just that it takes fuckin' FOREVER to do everything.
I generally just burn the VIDEO_TS (with a blank AUDIO_TS as some players don't like to work without it) as a DVD rom and it plays fine. In toast I select DVD-ROM (UDF) and have never had a complaint from anyone I've given discs.
Encoding is a bitch though. And I loved how that my Final Cut Pro/DVD Studio Pro came with exactly no (real) instructions or information on ac3 encoding. I had to go through the settings many times before I finally found what worked best without fucking up the audio.

I finally got it to work. I fucking win!
Sure a person with a monkey's knowledge of crackin' could've figured it out faster than I did. But so fucking what.
lolz now i'm a cracker.
Not the kinda that Ricky hates.
Oh who are we kidding, Richy hates all crackers.

Oh who are we kidding, Ricky hates all crackers.
All except you, Betty, and my girlfriend!
And I corrected your typo. WHAT OF IT?

Calling you Richy was a political statement.
