If the drive itself is region locked, then you must flash it with a patched RPC-1 (region free) firmware and then install DVD Region Killer. Get a firmware here: http://etna.rpc1.org/samsung/

thanks for your reply. When I tried to change region back from 1 to 2 it told me that this was my last attempt to do so, and if I was sure. I clicked ok, but it wont let me do it. "Unable to update region setting. Please make sure the drive contains a region 2 media and you have administration privilege" Got a region 2 DVD in drive.
So, what can I do? Do I still have to flash it? Or, as I still have 1 attempt left, is there something else wrong? Your help is arppreciated. Thanks
