    Could you please tell me how to change the region. the message comes up: Drive region mismatch
    dvd shrink can't open disk, unless you change the region code of your dvd drive.
    current drive region 1
    your drive allows you to change the region 0 more times.
    then it has Australia, i click on that and the ok down the bottom doesn't lite up. Can someone please explain what's going on, it's been working fine up until now.
    thanks

    hi
    you have i think 5 chances to change a drive region code then it locked to last one!

    so you need an app running to take away the code all together like anydvd, dvd43 aswel i think?

    or get a hacked firm ware for your drive to unlock it!

    I may be wrong but the latest version of Decrypter appears to have a tool for changing or disabling region codes.

    hi

    you need both!

    the right region code so the drive can see it/read it

    and dvd decrypter to strip out region code from discs to play back on anything...
