Riplock is a new scheme from the MPAA. What it does is forces the drive to the lowest read speed when reading/playing DVD movies. It does not prevent ripping , it just makes its slower to do. Makes it a nuisance. Patched firmware removes the riplock. Also removes the RPC protection, which is region protection.
There is also a bitsetting update for the 6500A
bitsetting makes the DVD+R more compatible with older dvd players, it tricks the player inot thinking the disc is a pressed DVD and not a burned DVD. Some players reject burned DVD's
