Air Superdrive regional compatibility
The following is perhaps an FAQ for more experienced members but I could not find a ref on other posts, so here goes: I understand the external superdrive for the macbook air is stuck on a "region" for DVD viewing (US vs. Europe, etc). This can only be changed a few times before the drive locks into the last regional position chosen. I travel constantly from one continent to the other and have batches of DVDs from both sides.
My question: is there a workaround to allow the drive to switch endlessly from one region to another (I recall there was one for older iBooks)?
Thanks for any help.

try browsing http://forum.rpc1.org/, I've had some luck with my last MBP and the Powerbook before that one. Didn't try yet with the new book.
What it comes down to is
* replace the firmware of the drive
* use an app called "Region X" to switch the active region (don't use DVD Player or anything else)
