I have just bought an ASUS E616P1 DVDROM Drive. What I would like to know is if there is any way I can "unlock" the drive so that it is region free without possibly killing the drive 2 days after buying it. (I've read all the horror stories on the net from people who have tried to accomplish this with a firmware flash; which has resulted in a dead drive).
Also, I read somewhere that the ASUS E616P1 is just a relabelled PIONEER drive. Is this true and if so, is this a good or a bad thing?
