There are no firmware releases available for this drive, but it should be possible now to create a raw firmware dump using DevilsClaw's Renesas Flasher (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=46137) by running it with this special command line:

flasher -d <drive id> -l firmware.bin 1 80000000 00200000

where <drive id> should be replaced by your actual Drive ID number.

Once a firmware dump is available, that would open the door for a RPC patch.

Thanks for posting, the raw dump looks OK as far as I can tell. With a bit of DevilsClaw magic we should have a flashable firmware for this drive.

Strange ... no problems here as a free unregistered user (UK) and it didn't ask for anything other than a standard capcha code in order to download...

I've uploaded a copy to mediafire anyway: http://www.mediafire.com/?df8zz48s15blnvl

I went to the site clicked the download entered there code and no download started and a free trial popped up.
I tried it a few times. I am using Firefox with out any plugins right now so there should be nothing preventing the site from working properly.

This is a request thread, no queue, no rss feed, no chat, no bread, no wine...you know it.
So just apply to the request rules.

Hi All, I've dumped my firmware for the GA32N:

Code:
Vendor: HL-DT-ST
Model: DVDRW GA32N
Firmware: KE06
Status: RPC-2 (region locked)
Region 1


Here is a link to the firmware:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/nasw624tokxa6pv/GA32N_firmware.bin

Let me know if that site is ok or if I should upload it to a preferred site. Not sure what the next steps.

Thanks,
-kap

it'd be very much appreciated if devilsclaw could find the time to work his magic on this one, too:
Code:
Vendor: HL-DT-ST
Model: DVDRW  GA32N                   
Firmware:   KC12
Status: RPC-2 (region locked)
Region: 2   

dump is available from here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?sc3xs4q82n0an7g

thanks very much in advance for giving this a try.
