DVD Region Lock


I was wondering if anybody would know how to prevent a DVD-Burner from lokcing to one region? I have just purchased a
Sony External DVD Burner DRX-500UL and have been told that if i continue to copy Region 1 DVD’S the burner will end of locking to that Region. Can anybody help?:confused:

If you only use region 1 DVD’s, then the region counter will not decrease each time. It only decreases if you change from one region to another, like if you copy a region 1 disc, then a region 2 disc…
