i did search a good 12months back and you could actually beat the region lock out for free on most to make the drives multi region http://www.pcreview.co.uk/articles/Hardw...gion_free/

never followed it up beyond that as i picked up a second dvd drive for free, so just have one running region 1 another running region 2

DVD Shrink rips the protection off - then rip DVD to harddrive and watch from that

i believe you still need the drive to match the region before hand otherwise dvd shrink will reject the disc

What you believe and what you can prove are often two different things.......

for some reason when i brought it, customs decided to place it in a bonded warehouse, a month later they randomly released it

it was all still in its plastic wrapping etc but the parcel had clearly been opened, stamped with impounded and came with a letter stating it had been opened and held by HMRC, I figure it must have been siezed as part of a drugs impounding and later processed out as not involved

I have a dvd drive with no region coding, had to flash it with a tweaked firmware

Why is it so difficult on the PC, and so easy on normal players ????????
