    I've used up all my turns to change the region on my burner - is there away out of this problem without having to buy another one?

    Needs to be compatable with DVD Shrink.

    Depending on the model,there may be 3rd party firmware upgrades that can make your drive region free if you wish to take that chance.

    Someone else will have to confirm or deny my next statement, but I do believe that I read somewhere that any firmware upgrade for your drive from the manufacturer resets the region changes on the drive.

    From now on, don't change your drive settings and use a program that will take care of region codes.

    It's not a free program, but seems to be worth the cost in your situation.
    Firmware is usually a last resort because a tiny blunder can fry your drive.

    thank you very much. I resloved the problem by downloading DVD Shrink again and it works a treat!
