biggrin.gif Time to give the thomson a kick up the ass!

Been watching the development of this drive very closely, nice to see it's been perfected.

Should this get a pin?

i mailed a mod for a pin but got no answer yet. moreover a post to the news would be nice; i think that many people are searching for something like this and will never know about it. im afraid that they will recognize the mod when the 8163b isnt available anymore.

Any idea if this would work on the 8163BB version? This is I guess the newer version (16x/52x) and is available everywhere here :-)

Thanks for any help!!

I would also like to know about the original 8050L - would the trick work to enable CD-R on them?

@:u_no_fr

Thanks! I found some contradicting info on the LG site, I could only find info on the B version and it said it was a 16x48x drive, through a link at one of the local shops I came at another part of the LG site for the BB, RBB versions and it said 16x/52x so that's where my confusion started biggrin.gif

Thanks for your quick reply though, will pick one up tomorrow!

turho, its not the first time i see you asking stupid questions, sorry, but it seems that you just dont read anything. this tutorial will show you the cd advantage which trubb mod didnt.

@Blast

didnt you see my earlier post on the last page? i made it extra large! maybe it was no clear enough, so here once again, this time in red wink.gif:


btw, people with a original lg drive should be able to upgrade their drive too.

p.s. just dont wanna trash this topic with double posts

If only this worked on the 605F, I'm sure it would work on an 8050L if we found the VRCD point. Honestly, if the same trick can be used on the new Sammys, I would have many more happy customers and other members.

If Im not mistaken the lens doesnt detect CD-R media,thats why when you drop the pot it picks it up.
