Change Region Code of DVD-writer?

Hi, I’m new to Club CD freaks, welcome all.

I have a newbie question here: My region is actually 3, but when I tried to use DVD shrink to open a region 1 disc, it tells me that my DVD-writer can only change the region 4 times. How to prevent this(Allow unlimited changes). Any answers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey and Wellcome to CD Freaks!

There are some ways of doing this. The most direct way is to flash your drive with a hacked firmware, but this can be risky. An easyer way is to use AnyDVD. Give that a try and get back to us :slight_smile:

Hi, thanks alot, I have heard of AnyDVD before, but I prefer to hack my firmware. Problem is, where to find it?(firmware that is). My DVD writer is the TDK DVDRW1612DLB.

The best place to ask is the firmware section, start a new thread (but dont just copy this 1) and ask if anyone knows a site/person that has a R0 hacked firmware for your drive.
