NEC ND-6650A: disabling regional codes

Newbie alert.

I want to to disable/circumvent the regional codes of the NEC ND-6650A installed in my Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop.

If someone can point out the easiest (and free!) way to do that, I’d appreciate it.

Many thanks!

First of all you have to find out what firmware your drive is on. Nero CD-DVD Speed will give you all information needed.
Also take your time and read other “6650” threads, especially about the difference in “1**” and “2**” firmwares.

At Liggy and Dee27’s firmware page you’ll find (Dell) rpc1 firmware.

Warning. Before doing any flashing make sure you backup your current firmware!
