ouchie - probably once or twice, but make sure you put a region 2 disc in straight away afterwards to reset the software (most drives give you 4 goes to change the region before locking it)... the next problem you run into could be the player you use... some players have a software region encoder, and you have to bypass this too...

some drives can be set to region free (you have to know the specifics of your drive and download a 'region' tool) but you'd still have to bypass the software encoder if there is one...

it's a bit complicated sounding, but actually quite easy if you have the right software etc...

hope that helps

Yeah VLC is great and means you don't have to keep switching regions all the time. We have a fair few region 1 dvds and thats how we watch them. :thumbs:
