I have a HP dvd 400c writer. Current Setting is region 4. Is it possible to change to region free?? Apparantly XP locks the region code after 3-4 changes? I have a couple of R1 I want to copy. Also does anyone know if there is firmware available for this writer?
As I understand it, dvd43 bypasses both region/CSS control. even on RPC2 drives.
Better still, add a DVD-ROM, preferably one that IS RPC-hacked (best form is autoreset, as then the drive eats the region change, whereas with RPC-1, you need a software solution to prevent Windows taking over region control).
You can try AnyDVD…
Thanks for reply Matth and marlowe. I have downloaded and tried DVD43 and that seems to be doing the trick!! Thanks again…
i changed the region code on my dvd drive and now it will not read any cd, vcd and dvd. Is there there a solution out there to my problem?
I doubt that is region control specific.
Re-install the drive from devicemanager.
