[QUOTE=DARK63;2652234]Hello everyone- I have an old HP Pavilion Machine.
I want to replace the DVDRW drive as its stuck on region 1 and I want region 4.
I called HP and they can sell me a new drive US$123.53 etc.
I asked them “what region code would this be”? They said they didnt know and I had to contact Microsoft.
I contacted Microsoft and they said it wasnt a Microsoft issue?!
So I feel like I’m in no mans land. I dont want something for nothing - I just dont want to spend money if I dont know what I’m getting.
Any ideas please?
every good wish,

if it is a sata you can find them for 20.00 on sale on newegg and other places don’t pay HP 123.00 for a 20.00 burner.
