Default I sead "DVD LOCKING is illegal"

No. It's ILLEGAL for DVD Drive and DVD players to have the region coding LOCKING in the first place.

There was a big court case agaist sony a few years back. Now DVD player if they want to have Reagon Coding, they must be reagon free.
There for, having a software and hardware that LOCKS your DVD after 5 Region changes is a big No No.
How ever the problem is since at lot of the software vendors on not is Australia, a lot of the product that comes in still has the DVD Region LOCKING in there in the first place.

What I want to do it make my LiteON POS DVD Drive Region Free.

I am not breaking any laws here with this request.
(well, in my country any ways)

How ever there is a good chance that i am voiding a warranty.

Thumbs up

Found a untility that resets my Region Count at http://digi.rpc1.org/rpc.htm

It reset the Region Count on my LiteOn XJ-HD166S and (i think) on windows.

So I have the following thing to say to Regional Playback Control...
