DVD-ROM=>universal player?

I’m not sure if this is the correct forum to post on, but I’m curious to know if there is a way to “hack” a DVD-ROM, so that it remains a universal player forever, rather than having it switch back and forth until you run out of switches and it permanently becomes set to a particular region. Thanks for any help!


It really depends on the brand. Generally Sony and Panasonic don’t allow this. Currently the Philips 624 is the current favorite. Look here to get the info on a particular model.


Is this for DVD-ROMs or DVD players? Are they mostly the same thing?


Oops. My error. :o You want to go here for DVD-ROM drives.

Thanks very much!!!
