    The drive is your problem. Get a different (non Panasonic/Matsushita) drive.

    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
