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!!!
