Ok, I'm not sure where this would go in the forum, so I'll post it here. Moderators please move if necessary. So I just bought a Panasonic/Mats**ta Slim Blu-Ray burner for my laptop off eBay. The unit is new but it has trouble reading some brands/makes of BD-R. Sony has released a firmware update but it does not detect my drive even though the drive string matches exactly "MATs**tABD-MLT UJ-225S". http://vcl.vaio.sony.co.jp/download/EP0000145205.html http://dlv.update.sony.net/pub/vaio/download/EP0000145205/EP0000145205.exe I don't know where to begin, but is there anyone who could help me figure how to modify the embedded firmware updater "UpDate_UJ225_Q111.exe" to get it to crossflash? FWIW, I've posted on the RPC1.org forums but there is not much activity on there...I just want to get the normal firmware updated since I don't really have a need for RPC1 (region-free).
