I added the auto-reset patch in MCSE to the firmware and ran the exe (under a vista install on boot camp) and it all seemed to work ok, but in device manager the drive still has just one region change remaining. When i rebooted after the firmware upgrade vista reinstalled drivers for the device.
As I understand it the drive should have the five region resets available when the machine is restarted but it doesn't reset at the moment. Is there anything else I should do to get the reset of the count working?

Just got a new MBP and it ships with this drive, release AP12:
HL-DT-ST DVDRW GSA-S10N:
Firmware Revision: AP12
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)

Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW

Would it be possible to flash this drive with the older Dell firmware?
I believe this drive unlike Matshita drive can by easily bypassed simply using VLC ... is this correct?
I don't understand the moderator's questions - I'm not a technician, I'm an ordinary user; perhaps he or she is speaking to people with a greater level of technical knowledge than mine

I read this, he patched his drive from AP08 to the Dell's one.
This doesn't answer my question as if it will work with my drive currently running AP12...
I've written to Apple, and suggest that other customers should do the same - if we don't tell the company how we feel about this, the company will think we're perfectly happy with it
