Dear fellow Geeks,

Here's a riddle for you: I bought my Mac Powerbook in Canada, but I live in the UK. Now as you probably already know, Canada uses region 1 NTSC DVD's and the UK uses PAL Region 2. When I first used my DVD Drive I inserted a PAL DVD. A menu popped up and said that I can only switch back and forth from PAL to NTSC - 5 times. On the fifth time the computer would stick with last format I used and I wouldn't be able to go back and forth anymore. My question is this: Can I stop my computer from doing this? I'm essentially trying to make my DVD drive multi-region.

Who wants to take the challenge? :tazz:

Thanks for your help!
