@ istyna,

Welcome to the Forum.

Concerning Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic Drive RPC-1 Region Free Firmware suggest reviewing the “Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic drive owners” (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=34750) thread. In reviewing the “Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic drive owners” thread you will see that ->

It is a well known documented fact that Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic Region Code prohibitions are difficult and most likely are unable to be circumvented.

Unfortunately Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic Region Free (RPC-1) Firmwares are not available and will not become available and also all “Software Solutions” (such as SlySoft’s ‘AnyDVD’) alternatives are also unable to circumvent Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic Region Code prohibitions.

Your alternative is to either live with Matshita / Matsushita / Panasonic Region Code prohibitions or purchase a DVD Drive that Firmware modifications are able to remove Region Code prohibitions.

Regards,
Coaster

Thanks, Coaster! It's a pleasure to join such a well run forum.

I have read all there is to read on the subject, both here, and in all ogther available forums.

The fact is that I have read that there are some patched FW's for some of the models, and I even saw on one of the Apple based forums, that someone had patched the 844 FW.

I don't weigh in heavily among the other users, but hope springs eternal.

If its possible to come up with a patched workaround, I know it will be done by one of the masters associated with this group.

...and if not, then I will continue to live with my RPC-2 slim drive until such a miracle happens.

Thanks for your reply!
