Question about Acer Aspire 8920-6048 Notebook
We have recently aquired a Acer Aspire 8920, and are having some problems with playing region 2 DVDs, as it seems to be set to American standards, region 1.
How does one change the region. It doesn't seem to work by following the on screen menu, as it seems to have problems reading the disk as region 2.
Older DVD drives use RPC-1 firmware, which means the drive allows DVDs from any region to play. Newer drives use RPC-2 firmware, which enforces the DVD region coding at the hardware level. These drives can often be reflashed with hacked or Australia and New Zealand (hardware region coding prohibited by law in these countries) RPC-1 firmware, effectively making the drive region-free. However, this usually voids the warranty and can render the drive inoperable if something goes wrong... better contact your laptop manufacturer regarding this
