Making a Mac Pro DVD drive Region Free


I've got an external USB BluRay drive for ripping my Blu's which is working great. But for DVD's I need some region free software that will allow me to change regions as often as I need. The allowable 5 times is not practical.

Can anyone recommend or suggest which software to use ?

If the DVD's in question are commercial products, subject to copyright or commercial protection, then what you want to do may be of questionable legality. However, if they are, for example, privately produced and you are sure that you are not breaking the law, then take a look at this link:

I am not sure if it gets over the region coding problem on the Mac Pro DVD drive but it does on at least some iMac drives.
