Once it is enabled, probably through a firmware change, one main advantage is that things like AACS version 70 won't lock you out from ripping older disks.

Can someone please post how to enable this? I, too, have a similar Samsung drive (SE-506CB). And assuming the process is similar for these drives I would be gratefull for getting a short instruction.
