    Hi, i just wondered whether anydvd or anydvd HD would work with my notebook dvd drive: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-861H ATA Device. I have heard that there have been problems with matshita drives but not all. Basically, I want to buy a region 1 dvd and my dvd drive is currently set to region 2. I do not want to have to use up any of my 3 (i think?) chances to change my region and I am not sure how to go about resetting firmware etc. So will anydvd or anydvd HD allow me to play a region 1 dvd in my above mentioned drive? thanks

    16. Help! I'm having problems playing discs from other regions with my Matshita drive! Why?

    Matshita (Panasonic oem) burners should really be avoided. They are cheap junk (which is probably why some laptop companies love these drives), die easily, and also suffer from region coding issues. Click this
