I believe so.... let me check for you. I'm almost certain. Don't throw it out or buy another one,,, yet.
Let me dig into my pile of info I keep for times like this.
It's not funny, but I told you what would happen if you went beyond the allowed changes. As a matter of fact, I believe Windows explains that when you go into the Region settings of your dvd/cd.
Unless someone posts the info I'm talking about, just keep this post available to you. I'll post back soon.[Added Info]
The firmware you need is called rpc1
You can learn more about it here:http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=239
and check here for your model:http://tdb.rpc1.org/
more info to help you to understand the process a bit morehttp://www.pcreview.co.uk/articles/Hardwar...ve_region_free/
And last, but not least, you can use DVD Shrink
) , and it'll make your dvd's region free.http://www.dvdshrink.org/what.html
Just use it to backup your dvd and tell it to back it up region free.
I just now learned that burners made within the last 3 years will burn region free. You'll need to verify it by your make/model. But it's totally different from playing a dvd from a different region.
I know this is a mouthful of info, but better to have enough than not enough info.
Hope this helps!.
