    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. :p You know the risk! Advising to search internet or reminding me that it is illegal will not be considered as HELP! :twisted:

    I need the help now. Lets see how many people know this. :?:

    Well the liteOns dont need a firmware flash to make em Region free...
    All u need is a prog called as "LTNflash". (Google it)

    Its a utility for pirmarily flashing/updatin ur firmware but also has a option of disabling the DVD Region protection..... :wink:

    Thanks for that nice and detailed tutorial dude! I have read that when you first posted it. But it is not actually the solution for my problem. I will look for LTNflash.

    And I will post some tools specially targeted for Liteon 16X DVD ROM and maybe a tutorial if you people want. Obviously, it will be just a copy paste from some tutorials that I have seen. So what do you think?
