Howdy there, this is my first post here. I have a 15" 1.25GHz PowerBook G4 running OSX 10.3.8 and I have had no problems so far. My mac plays Region 2 DVDs as I'm English, I tried to play movies bought from my holiday to Malaysia, which are Region 3 my Panasonic DVD recorder in the lounge at home happily plays all regions it was bought region-free. From reading most posts here in the forum, if you insert a DVD in my mac other than region 2 will have a prompt menu asking you if you wish to change region, after 5 times it will be permanently locked to that region, is that right? The strange thing is that I expected a prompt menu in DVD Player to appear when I inserted a Region 3 DVD, but the movie started to play as normal and I did not have to change the region, what does this mean? I tried to find what region my DVD drive is set to, but I can't find anything. If the prompt menu was supposed to appear which it didn't and let me know where I can find it. Cheers!
