Thanks for geting back to me â€“ and for the helpful info.
To answer your questions â€“ I donâ€™t have a copy of my original firmware and, unfortunately, I donâ€™t have access to a Windows machine to flash the burner.
I was really hoping for a simple Mac firmware solution.
I have spent a fair bit of time online and it doesnâ€™t seem that there is anything for Macs using the SH-S203N model. It would have been nice for LaCie to be up-front and say itâ€™s not a multi-region burner ... but theyâ€™d lose sales, right?
The best I can do is use the VLC player that doesnâ€™t care about DVD regions.
Thanks again for your help.
