This is the DVD on my new laptop. I've looked over The Firmware Page and there seems to be no obvious way. Even the new version of DVD REGION FREE (V.2) has this note at the bottom of the download page:

"Note: DVD-RAM and Matshita SR-8xxx series DVD-ROM are not supported now."

CURSES! My DVD collection is a wealth of various regions.

Since it says "not supported NOW" I take it that DVD REGION FREE V.1 may have supported it. Would anyone have a link to download this older version so I can try it out? Or perhaps have another suggestion.

Sounds to me more like a case of "not yet". Looks like it's a fairly new drive, and these things take time.

That's cool, I hadn't realised it was so new.
