Is region free possible with Sony ?

  sunways 19:45 21 Aug 2005

Hi i have a new Mesh pc only 1 month old, so far so good. It has a Sony DVD RW DW-Q28A. So far i have had to change regions twice, and apparently i only have three more changes left. So the question is can i make this DVD RW region free.

No. Even if you put it in another machine.

what do you mean no?

I have a pioneer108 DVD-Rewriter and found some firmware for it then made it region free

So the answer is yes or buy anydvd

It is reasonably easy t make any DVD region here and scroll down to the end. takes 10 minutes.

As GANDALF <|:-)> says it is relatively easy.

I am currently using an NEC ND-2500 a 4X single layer recorder now flashed to 8X dual layer region free.

However i would pay particular attention to the warning at the top of the page.

I didn't mean no. I meant yes.

thanks for all the help, it seems i have two options. the safe choice buy ANYDVD software, and the risky one to use it is a new pc think i will go for the safe choice

cheers sunways....
