Description

A small stand-alone console progran to set/change a DVD drive's region code.

WARNING: As of this writing (9/2006) almost all DVD drives can only have their region codes set/changed four times. Some hacked firmware patches can bypass this.

Region set can be obtained from: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/dvd/regionset.tar.gz
