I thought DVD region lock was a thing of the past. I bought my macbook pro about 3weeks ago. Today I tried to play a DVD and it says choose region! And I can only change it 5 times. grr.. this is so annoying. I travel often between NZ (region 4) and the US (region 1)... so I need to be able to swap between these regions multiple times. Does anyone know how I can make my computer DVD "region free"?
