Question about PC Laptops
I have an Acer 10x dvd 1040A. Problem: I have used my 5 region changes. Solution: I downloaded the firmware patch (version 1.10) from 7th Zone (supposed to be same as pioneer 10x drive) to reset the drive but it didn't work and now my drive is stuck on region 1. This is fine for watching american beauty or chicken run however not so good for my region 4 gladiator. Anyone have any ideas on how to correct this problem ? From what I've read the drive cannot be made RPC-1 region free, it can only be reset to give you 5 more region changes everytime. Hope someone can help Swoop.... I have an old Acer Extensa 2303, and as we travel a fair bit between Canada and NZ, we changed our Region a couple of times, but we tried to change back to Region 4 for NZ prior to the last allowed change, but it wouldn't let us. We now need a crack to reset or go Region free. OB.Angels@live .com
Ok, try this...
find your model (i think its in section Acer/Benq) and download the hacked firmware (region free).
Now that your drive has had its region-checking facility disabled you also need to remove the checking that is built into Windows and the DVD-playback software. The easiest way to do this is with Dvd region killer or better find AnyDVD. Download it and install it on your computer.
