Hi Folks,

My friend has a DVD Rom that is limited to playing DVDs from Region 1.

Anyone have any good ideas how to get this restriction lifted?

Questions:

1. What kind of DVD-Rom (model etc)
2. What kind of s/ware is being used to view DVD at the moment?

Use a program like VideoLan Media Player (no cost) (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) or A program like DVD Region Free (costs money) (http://www.dvdidle.net/dvd-region-free.htm)

If you know the model of the drive, then "The Firmware Page" would be a good place to fix that problem. (Probably not allowed to post the link, so Google it).

Try here http://www.dvd-x-player.com/ this is a region free player. You have to buy it but there is a free trial version.
