1. Check your drive status with something like Drive Info (Erwin van den
Berg, http://www.visualdomain.net).

This should tell you details about the model and whether it's region
protected or not. If your drive is newer than 2 years and the above check
confirms it's RPC2, you can't do anything on the software level. The region
lock is in the drive, you need to patch the firmware.

2. Go to http://perso.club-internet.fr/farzeno/firmware/ and search for the
patch for your drive.

Double-check what you're doing, this can ruin your hardware if you do it

Good luck
