... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !
a program for Linux 2.4 and upwards that uploads firmware to
DVD drives (mostly DVD+RW).
stands for RICOH Program Loader 8, though it also supports
Program Loader 9.
never updates Program Loader code so that you should always
be able to downgrade your firmware in case something goes
rpl8 has been tested with the following:
* HP dvd100i
* Ricoh MP5120A
* Philips DVDRW208
* HP dvd200i
rpl8 correctly, make sure you have no media in drive.
Optionally go to single user mode and reboot after uploading
the new firmware.
Only backs up the firmware.
Note that you might have to reboot even after this.
