I recently got a laptop and spotted a Region 1 DVD that I wanted to buy (I’m in Region 2). I thought I did a thorough investigation but stupidly bought DVD Region Free without testing it out first. I’m not very good on technical matters so I assumed my DVD player would be ok to play it and as the DVDs were being sent to my home address (I am in college) I impetuously decided to go and buy the full program wailing and gnashing of teeth
My DVD drive is a Matshita DVD RAM UJ-811 and curses to it, but Region Free doesn’t support it, but I didn’t pay any attention to this, seeing instead that they said they didn’t support XX-8xxx and SW-xxxx Matshitas. I really want to kick myself over being so stupid, and have been trawling the net for answers. I don’t understand what the difference is with DVD-RAM and DVD-ROM. Are only a few companies using DVD RAM and will no program help in bypassing region free? (as my technical skills are so pitiful I don’t want to attempt any of the serious hacks out there). My drive still has 3 region changes left on it but I’ll be sticking to Region 1 DVDs for the time being!
Any help would be much appreciated
