No, short of getting a new drive, there's nothing you can do. This "feature" exists to prevent people from importing DVDs into regions where some movie hasn't yet been released. Not that it stops everyone and their dog from pirating whatever they please in China and South Korea. No, it's we the paying customers who get to suffer. Great system isn't it?
The DVD player on my laptop has become locked to DVD Region 1. I am in Europe and normally operate in Region 2. Is there anyway I can unlock the drive or get a workaround, anything at all I can do? Using a Dell Inspiron 1525,running Windows Vista, think the drive numbers are TSSTcorp DVD+RW-TS-L632H. would love any help possible, cheers.
