Question about DVD/Blu-ray Drives
Cant change region settings as its gone to zero
Usually once you play three DVDs that aren't from your native region on a DVD drive the drive gets permanently changed to that region. Using software like AnyDVD will enable you to fool the drive into thinking all your DVDs are region 0. Otherwise you would need to get a hold of the drive manufactueres debuging software or maybe a hacked firmware for the drive to be able to get it back to the proper region.
