    Hi,
    Thinking of getting a multi format DVD re-writer, probably the LG 4081. But are there any, or indeed this one that can be made multi region?

    Regards
    John

    Use a program called dvd region free (www.dvdidle.com) or one by slysoft (www.slysoft.com).. they will make windows/drive region free without having to update the firmware etc etc..

    I think forums.rpc1.org will help you :)

    My NEC-1300A now resets it's region count on every reboot.

    One of the very useful features of DVDRegionFree and AnyDVD is that they can disable UOPs, meaning you CAN skip the peurile copyright warnings and forced ads/trailers which are especially insidious on some R1 DVDs.
