    Can anyone tell me how I can do a "region hack" on my pc?
    I'm using Cyberlink PowerDVD as a player if that makes any difference.
    Thanks.

    2nd vote for AnyDVD, has always been faultless and has additional functions very handy for an HCPC

    Like the others suggested, software is a much easier option than flashing the drive.

    I use DVD Region Free. Never used AnyDVD - but have only heard good things about it.

    Yes - it works at driver level not software decoder/player level.

    Ever since I have installed it Zoom Player now hangs everytime. Tried installing the latest version of Zoom Player, but still no joy.
