Same as set tops, in theory. You can change it 5 times. Some will let you reset that 5 count. Or you can use software to bypass it.

1st of all, which DVD-ROM do you have in your computer? Lite-On brand DVD-ROM can be set to region free w/ FREE tool, made by Lite-On.

[Removed DVD ripping comments. You should know better than that by now. -X]

DVD Region Free... heh, what a ripoff.

Here's a cool little freeware program that gives you the region-free status, current firmware revision and other DVD related info on your drive (s).
