Request: HL-DT-STDVDRW GA32N (KC09) - iMac 27 Late 2010

Postby svh79 on Thu Aug 12, 2010 9:01 am

Hi Forum!

I got my brand new iMac 27" with a HL-DT-STDVDRW GA32N (KC09). Unfortunately, I could not find a ready-to-use RPC1 firmware in the database. Is there any known progress on this?

DVD Info X:
Vendor: HL-DT-ST
Model: DVDRW GA32N
Firmware: KC09
RPC-2 (region locked)
State is NOT SET
4 vendor resets left
5 region changes left
No region set

Cheers,
Sven

try dumping the firmware with devilclaws utility. Obviously nothing can be done without a firmware.

you should never attempt to flash and then dump on a mac system. reboot and attempt to dump. it still may not work but it might.

Oops, sorry... my fault. Please ignore the second of that commands. Flashing failed, because the firmware file does not exist. Nevertheless, dumping fails.

do you have the ability to pull the drive out and open the case on it so that we can find out the chipset ?

I could do that, but I fear the risk of breaking the thin glass of the iMac. Is there any other possibility to get more details of the drive?

I just realized that my Mac mini has the same drive, but an older firmware revision (KC08). I will try to get that one open - should be easier. :wink:

I just disassembled the drive and made some photos. I hope this helps. :D (Sorry, had to split the archive due to high resolution images and zip the files due to upload restrictions.)

What kind of attitude is that from you?

Besides, have you even read the posts in this thread?
