What program is telling you that you have 2 changes left? Is it Windows?
This is probably what happened: Before you flashed, "the software" that you're using was recognizing that your DVD drive's region had only been set one time, giving you four remaining changes. You flashed the drive with a RPC-1 firmware, removing its region protection completely and making it region-free. The region protection that you see now is Windows' own region protection which can be defeated by other means.

Thanks for your response. I had read that page several times before posting. The question is, what are those "other means?" This counter is in Windows XP, since I can see it in Device Manager. It is not in another application. Are you saying that the Windows counter cannot be reset?
It seems like I have done this once before, but I don't remember the details. So, I must have made the drive region free, but Windows still thinks I can only change the region two more times. Since I'm no expert on these things, I would appreciate you "holding my hand" on finishing up on this. The OS is XP Pro with SP2.
