[QUOTE=Bane;2487321]Hmm…using nero drive info, it says that my drive is already RPCII.[/QUOTE]
Of course it is RPC2 already (i.e. region locked) … all new drives are … isn’t that why you wanted to unlock it in the first place?
There are two ways to unlock a drive: either flash it with a RPC1 firmware which disables the region control mechanism entirely (so you get a region free drive) or alternatively flash it with a RPC2 Auto Reset firmware so that the region counter gets reset back every time you power down your drive (i.e every time you shut down or restart your computer) …
I presume I could do a firmware dump of the one that’s already on the drive, edit that in MediaCodeSpeedEdit software then reflash it.[/QUOTE]
No you can’t! Unfortunately there’s no way yet to dump firmwares from LG drives with a Panasonic chipset, and even if you could, there’s no flasher available to flash that firmware back into the drive. You need to do what evo173 said. MCSE can make your drive RPC2 Auto Reset.
Since you’ve got AnyDVD already installed on your machine, you shouldn’t be bothered about region coding anyhow… AnyDVD will disable all protections, so you could play DVDs from any region you want without having to patch your drive.
By the way, all this only applies to DVDs. MCSE will not disable/touch Blu-Ray region control. However you can use AnyDVDHD to overcome the Blu-Ray region control mechanisms …
