Hi everybody ,
I’ve got a Toshiba M-1502 IDE DVD Rom player.
Works great … works perfect…
I’ve made it region free thanks to the firmware page
Now comes the trouble…
I rarely actually play a dvd in this player (rather rip them); Usually i play them in a standalone dvd player which is connected to my dts amplifier and the tv. But i wanted to try if i could play some dvd’s still under Windows XP.
No problem for region 2. And happlily played on.
Now i’ve put in a region 1 dvd and what the hell… even with dvd genie , WinDVD says i should change the region to 1.
Okay … i do that … play a little . and put back in a region 1.
WinDVD comes with no warning so i think everything’s cool and it plays. I put back in a region 1 again.
Then i check the properties of the drive , it tells me it’s region 1 and i’ve got 1 change left before it’s permanent.
Quickly rebooted , flashed it again with a region free firmware and now i’ve got two changes left and no region set.
How can i tell Windows XP it shouldn’t set the region ?
I can tell it to WinDVD in combination with DVD Genie , but how to tell XP ?
