Hi all, I have a BENQ Joybook S72 laptop with a Matshita UJ-840S drive, running firmware 1.5. My OS is WINXP SP2. Now I can't read discs other than region 2 (the region set by my DVD)... Tried different discs but I always get that long AnyDVD message clearling stating MATSHITA and the problems I might run into... An example: Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD 18.104.22.168) MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-840S 1.50 503110KME1930002772 Drive (Hardware) Region: 2 Media is a DVD. Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite) Size of first Layer: 2078576 sectors (4059 MBytes) Total size: 4143012 sectors (8091 MBytes) Video DVD (or CD) label: MY_NAME_IS_EARL_S1_D2 Media is CSS protected! Video Standard: NTSC Media is locked to region(s): 1! It's an NTSC Region 1 dvd... Could it be that I just have no luck with this drive and I should get a different one installed or is there any workaround available for this? Thanks in advance, Bernard.
