Drive region problem help apreciated

just woundering if some one could help me, my drive is from region 2 but i put dvd from region 1 now my drive wouldnt change it back to region 2, can i format the computer or do i have to buy another drive??? help apreciated thanks :sad:

Formatting the computer wouldnt help, as the region settings are stored in the drive itself. Maybe theres an RPC-1 firmware available for your drive. What is your drive model ?

welcome to cdfreaks.

yes, as [B]molnart[/B] said, there [B]may[/B] be a region free firmware for your optical drive.

you only have 5 changes of a region on your drives and it locks to the last one that you choose to use, you must have got a warning about this?

but as said, if you give the make and model number of the drive, folk here will see if theres an available firmware for you.

this is also in the wrong section, not to worry.

it’s meant to be here, if you was wondering

i have a Asus DRW-1814BLT, and i didnt had 5 chances i had like 3 but i didnt no that had a limit that a stupid thing put limits on dvd region but cant do nothing

whats the firmwave going to do???

Just please use SEARCH. :wink:

doesn’t look as iof theres a RPC-1 firmware

you have to buy another drive, one that can be made region free :wink:

Just use AnyDVD.
