Anyone have any idea? I'm interested in being able to play all DVD versions.

Thanks

well it depends mostly on the type of dvd drive you have..... example i have sony dvd 12x drive which is actually a re-badged liteon drive. i found a hack that turned it back to a liteon drive (the bios and windows reports it as a liteon drive) and i've also got a hack for the liteon drive that turns it region-free. its just a matter of finding the appropriate hack for your drive.

unfortunately dvdgenie only works if your region coding is software based... if it's FIRMware based, you have to flash your hardware, risking damaging your hardware permananently... dvdgenie gets ride of region coding with programs, not drives...
