NEC 3550A does not become mutli zone after firmware update

I recently bought a NEC 3550A drive and I am trying to view multi region original movies with it.

I succeed in flashing the firmware to the version in http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/disclaimer/3550/105_rpc1.zip.html

But still the drive will not play multi region.

Any ideas or additional steps I need to take to make it work?

Thanks

@ ub40,

Welcome to the Forum.

A lot of folks don’t seem to be aware that patching your drive with a region free firmware is only half the trick to being completely region free.

Perhaps the below link will provide some information so additional information concerning Region Free.
