Hi there,

I have a Macbook which I can't change the region back to 2. As I believe I have exceeded the limit of 5.

The Macbook will happily play a region2 dvd when using a USB DVDdrive. I have tried VLC Player as well with no luck. It appears to be locked on the firmware of the macbooks drive.

The internal dvd drive is HL-DL-ST GSA-S10N

Can anyone advise on what to to? Update the firmware on the dvd drive?
