The only time I've seen it work.

Is when someone updated the firmware in the DVD. Usually it's the end of the line for the drive.

I have found on the net some progs that reset the Region Change counter to the default 5. It did work on my friends system. The drive was either a LG or Samsung DVD drive.

Search the net, you may be lucky.

If firmware upgrade will reset it, then does it mean that when the change counter touches 5, I can get away with a repeat upgrade with the same firmware version? Bob?
