What brand of DVDRom do I have in
my Yamakawa ?
The DVD mechanism in a Yamakawa
is an almost regular IDE DVDRom player, as seen in a regular PC.
Actually, I not sure if they still do, but Yamakawa/Raite used to
sell PC-DVD-Rom players as well !
So you would like to know what brand DVD-Rom drive is build into
your Yamakawa ?
* Note that this trick is not working
with firmwares 4x and newer.
visiting the Yamakawa
DVD group at Yahoo groups!
Before you start ...
Try this (with no disc inserted in the player) to see
which type ;
"SETUP" - "SLOW" -
"SKIP LEFT" - "4"
If you're not sure which keys on the remote you should
use then take a look at the deatils found on the
Remote Control page.

- regiocode free - PC IDE DVDRom drive. Other drives spotted are: RAITE
