You won't find codefree DVD drives inside Notebooks, no chance.
Especially in Japan where US import (Code 1) DVDs are *very* few,
codefree mods aren't available widely.

Very easy, just do a google search on DVD Genie (just an example, there
are lots of solutions). 
There are also firmware patches for the actual DVD drives available on the net...
