Dvd regions

I have an HP G70 laptop with a blueray dvd dual layer dvd player.It plays region 2 but i want it to play region 1 as well in fact to make it permanently region free.Can anyone help me in what i need to do or have to make this possible please?

Finding a region free firmware for your laptop blu ray drive may prove to be a fruitless quest. You can look for one over at rpc1.org, but I don’t have much hope of you locating one. You’ll need to know the exact model drive you have. http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

Your best bet is to buy AnyDVD HD and let it run in the background when you play your dvds or blu-ray disks. It will remove region codes from either one. http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvdhd.html
There is a free 21 day trial for you to test the program and see how well it works.

Many thanks
