    Hello all,

    I've decided to start a new thread as I could not find the answer I'm looking for.

    My Panasonic UJ-265 doesn't allow reading DVDs of other regions (common issue).

    I'm about to build a new Desktop PC and am considering either a Asus or LG 16x Blu-Ray burner drive. Do either of these suffer from the same limitation?

    Another side question, the cheap 100 GB Sony BD-RE discs don't seem to work with older BDXL drives but does work on newer ones like UJ-265. Can anyone confirm these are compatible with the new Asus and LG drives?

    Thank you in advance :)
