Problems when flashed a ND-4570A with 103_rpc1.bin

First off, I am a resident of Region 2 and I am still a relatively DVD newbie.

I own a NEC ND-4570A which was originally shipped with Firmware 1.02.
(Almost) everything went fine with this combination, including Nero Showtime.

Today I flashed it with 103_rpc1.bin. But this turned out to be a mixed
blessing only.

On the one hand driveinfo22.exe displayed the following text:

“THIS DRIVE HAS NO REGION PROTECTION” :slight_smile:

But on the other hand, Nero Showtime doesn’t recognize anymore video-files
on an inserted DVD under the VIDEO_TS directory, so Nero Showtime halts
with an error message.

Sorry, the folder you selected does not contain a valid DVD-Video,
SVCD or VCD structure …

:sad: Nervertheless .avi files can be played from the DVD smoothly.

Fortunately this process is reversible. I flashed it again with 1.03. Then
Nero Showtime plays those video files trouble-free as with 1.02 :slight_smile: , but
the region code became 2 again, and driveinfo22.exe showed:

“THIS DRIVE HAS REGION PROTECTION” :sad:

Has any1 any idea why :confused:

Suggest you use something like DVD Region Free or AnyDVD

Thx for the info, after installing “DVD Region Free”, "Nero ShowTime"
is working again as troublefree as with 1.02 :clap:
