Kia Ora,

I live in New Zealand and i would seem that New Zealand has no set region. I've rented three DVD's in my life each DVD had a different zone(1, 2 and 4). I now only can set my drive region twice more. Is there anything i can do to make my computer read anyzone more then five times?

I have a iMac combo it's less than three weeks old.

you'll need to do two things. first, you need to flash the firmware in your DVD drive so that it becomes region-free. secondly, you'll need to use a program to reset the number of changes left on your drive. have a look for both pieces of software at
opus ' download page and worm in the apple. be sure to get the correct firmware for your machine and DVD drive.
