On a whim I placed a Region 2 DVD (Anime purchased from Japan) into this drive, and to my surprise it played without a problem. As many of you know, there is a lot of heartache involved with hacking a DVD player to accept anything but Region 1 here in the USA. This drive plays Regions 1 and 2 without modificaitons. I don't know if this will work with other regions, but Region 2 encompases DVDs sold in Japan, Europe, the Middle East, S. Africa and Egypt. So if you are like me and really have a desire to play DVDs not sold in the US, then this may be the gismo for you! Buy this before Big Brother catches on and pulls it off the shelf!!!

I was amazed by what a friend had to say about FD so tried this one to get some DVD burning action going...What a pleasant surprise, both the drive and the software work great and to date 34 DVDs burned without any problems, all at 16x and look remarkable on the TV as well. In short close eyes over purchase and wait to be happy.
