    I am trying to find a way to reset my DVD drive, as its now locked. Apparently its been changed 5 times, (not that i remember doing it) but that is what has happened.

    I read you can flash to a new firmware with a RPC-1 update. However am a bit confused as to which version to use.

    Using DVD Info X it says:

    Vendor: HL-DT-ST
    Model: DVDRW GS21N
    Firmware: SA15
    RPC-2 (region locked)
    state is PERMANENT
    4 vendor resets left
    0 region change left
    Region 1

    Can someone please point me in the right direction to update to a RPC-1 firmware for this particular model DVD drive?

    Much appreciated
