I've got a Matshita DVD-RAM in my new ThinkPad T-60p, which I thought was the cat's meow until I found that there does not seem to be any way to get around the 4-change of regions limit for viewing DVD movies. I've looked everywhere and have not found any good news. It seems this particular DVD-RAM has neither any firmware update nor is it possible to use software to make it "region-free".
My only choice now is to buy another external DVD player and plug into my USB, and it seems logical that a simple DVD-ROM would be the choice, since all I need the device for is to watch DVD movies from different regions; I don''t need to write anything.
Is there a list of DVD-ROMs that are easily and cheaply made into "region-free"??
I'm getting desperate. Thanks.
