    I have a Philips DVD-R75 Multi-Region DVD Recorder purchased from Richer Sounds back in December last year.

    If I were to update the firmware of the player, would this disable the multi-region function of the player?

    Would appreciate some advice

    Thanks
    Lawrence

    Are you having problems? If your not and all is working as it should and it is reading the media you need it to read then by updating the firmware all you do is run the risk of introducing some of the errors that others have seen after attempting such an update: i.e. locked machines and disk errors.

    Updating the firmware does not normally disable the multi-region feature.

    I have updated the firmware on my multi-region DVDR80 4 times with no problems, and 2 other recorders several times, again with no problems.
