I have ordered the above mentioned drive but I have a question which I have posted before in General section. But haven't got any answer so I am posting here again: In the comparison given by techno_funky, I can see that in Region Protection section, for Liteon, changes is given as n/a. Now my question is: Is it a Region Free drive or it is firmware flashed? If it is firmware flashed then I want a step by step guide to flash the firmware of the Liteon 16X DVD ROM. Here I request help from the people who have done it before by himself not to the people who think he can do it. You know the risk! Advising to search internet or reminding me that it is illegal will not be considered as HELP! I need the help now. Lets see how many people know this.
