How do I make my DVD drive/burner region free?
Do I need a special software or firmware?
or Here might be better:
You could just use the software anydvd.
Newburn 3: Look at the software tab on this site,DVD Tools, ANYDVD v3611 or Region Free, I like ANYDVD the best, try the 21 day free trial first. ispy
Why bother with software when you can get a firmware up-grade with no hassle. It will permanently upgrade your firmware as well as increase ripping speeds. The software option is for the less able.....
i flashed my 107 with rpc1.Bloody amazing! region free,burns 4x discs at 8x perfectly, and rips for england!!
Oriphus: How can I flash one of my Sony 510A to be region free ? I,m in Region 2 drive has 1.0d firmware at present. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers ispy
Hi ispy, go to either of the sites listed in Oriphus's post above. Then do a search for the Hacked firmware for your drive. It usually works great.
Jerry 746: Thanks for the tip I will check it out later tonight.Will post the results Mon/Tues .Cheers ispy
Anyone tried the dangerous bros firmware for MSI MS8408A? (my drive)
The fact that the hacked firmwares are listed as still being beta makes me leery of trying them.
dangerous bros: any idea when these firmwares will become non beta?
any region free firmware for imation imwdvrw8i?
For various firmwares pay a visit to http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

I use "DVD Region-Free". It works fine. Doesn't change my region code on any of my DVD drives. I live in the US and watch a lot of region-3 movies.
thanks for your comments!
However, as Oriphus indicated, software is less reliable than firmware
BUT, I have not found the FIRMWARE to render my imation imwdvrw8i region free
I have looked and cannot find any for the Plextor PX-L890UE--any chance you can direct to a site that has a link by which I can flash the player permanently?
Thanks, but I want something that flashes the DRIVE PERMANENTLY, NOT something that runs in the background and affects the DVD files as they RIP, WHILE I am ripping a DVD-any ideas?
handle with care
(yes.. I'm actually being pleasant this week.. dunno why.. must be the weather or something)
thanks--the second site has nothing for a plextor L890UE, but the first one does have a zip firmware file--but WHAT DOES IT DO? It says nothing about what downloading and applying that file DOES--help!
Actually the first link does contain info about that burner. Read more of it - it's a Plextor firmware page. It tells you what to do with that zip file you downloaded in the second link. Some firmwares need converting, others just need a firmware loader tool to use. There is good information to be found in that link.
Also keep in mind you replied to a 7 year old post. Thankfully some of us saw it to try and help
OMG 7 years? lol. did not think to look at that! thanks muchly again; will do and will look at those links!
