I have searched and read unlimited amounts of information regarding my dvd drive toshiba sd-m1712. I wanted to watch a dvdmovie with my friend on my computer. I havent been using the drive all that much but i was surprised to see that the drive wouldnt read a dvd called meet the parents and rat rate. Both from us/canada region1 i think. But the drive had no problems reading a danish dvd. With the US dvds my drive tries to read them but in the end the led on the drive stays orange and i cannot read the drive from windows. I have been looking for a sollution and i have tried most things. I have updated firmware from 1004 with region set to 2 and 4 tries left, to J004. But the discinfo tool keeps telling me that the drive is locked. Is it really true that the drive cannot even detect a regionprotected dvd that the dvdrive is not set to take? I thought that i would at least tell me that i put in a regionprotected dvd.
But anyhow. What is wrong here? I have tried to flash back to 1004 several times but the result is always a locked drive. What do i do wrong?
Please help me!
