    Some DVD drivers save this to the firmware in EPROM if this is the case with yours you can't get round it as the restriction is electrical.

    Yes there is, it's called DVD Angel. I had it for a few years, never let me down, but my PC crashed after some hard drive configuration and I lost the download. Do a search for it. Good tool.

    Although there is the chance that you could find a region free firmware somewhere for the DVD-drive on the internet and then able to flash the drive.
    It is quite risky though

    Yeah very, I've never flashed EPROM in my life and their is a reason for that! I used to buy motherboards faulty motherboards for £2 each (when they were worth £50) and they were all identical all I had to is keep swapping the BIOSs chips round and some would work. I made a small furtune from doing this when I was 14/15.
