hello all... i am a loss as to how to make my driver read multiple regions of dvd. i had a different laptop previously and anydvd worked really with it. now i have a sony viao with a matshita UJ-842D dvd driver and it is currently set to region 1. i have installed anydvd on my computer but when i insert a dvd not of region 1, anydvd givs me an error message as folows: Your drive region is locked to rpc2 drive, which does not allow reading of scrambled sectors from a different region and you try to read a dvd from a different region. Known drives having this problem are RICOH/PHILLIPS DVD writers and MATSHITA/PANASONIC DVD readers and writers. you can try to find an rpc1 patched firmware at www.rpc1.com i went to the indicated url but it turned out to be s forum and i couldn't quite manage to get the information that i wanted. could someone please help me with this problem? i only want to be able to play different regions of dvd on my computer, however that may be possible. please!!!
