Is it? Done some googling and wikiing, have only found stuff about the HDDVD drive, but is the good ol' DVD9 drive region free as well?

^ yep as you say.


However technically the DVD part is region less but the player and 360 are encoded to that region.

Hence when you plug the HD-DVD into tiger, and put a DVD inside, it asks what do you want to set the region too ?

Ah, pity... Anyone know if the alternative drive firmware has any effect? (probably not, just checking in case)
