Angry In case anyone still needs this info

meh same problem here with retail DVDs, it'll play some but not most.

Anyways, I've flashed with the most recent version of the firmware for this drive which is BYS3. you can find info on it here:

***********.computing.net/mac/wwwboard/forum/11302.html

and you can find the downloads here:

********dhc014.rpc1.org/indexOEM.htm#DW-D22A

and the utility and instructions on how to flash the drive here:

********dhc014.rpc1.org/howto.htm

not that it helped me much, the drive now works for everything accept retail DVDs, which makes me wonder if there is a piece of software out there to force the region code in the firmware to work properly. If that doesn't work I"ll be ripping it out of my case and buying a real drive, this time not a SONY, because I feel totally ripped off that it's a LITE-ON drive when I thought I was buying a genuine SONY product.
