    I own a Time PC, a S3809 Speed Demon to be precised. The DVD is an ATAPI DVD-ROM 16XMax and is region locked (RPC-2). Elaborate Bytes DVD Region Killer needs my DVD to be RPC-1. Where can I get the firmware to region free my dvd (or a free patch)?
    Cheers.

    Try doing a search for dvd genie & see if that will do it. I think it is freeware.

    No it doesn't, that's the whole point of the application; to allow you to swap between regions.

    I use it on mine perfectly well.

    DVD Region-Free works on RPC2 drives as well. You might want to check that out.

    Hang on, if your DVD is region free already why would you need a region changer???

    Do you mean multiregion?

    thats what it says on the dvd genie site (what i said)

    RPC1 cracks the region check at the hardware level, windows and the software players have their own region checks dvd geine bypasses those
