Thumbs down Neokey doesnt work with DVD Region Free

sponsored links
As i have just purchased both of them, presuming the DVD region free would act in the same way as Region X for booting CD-r, as no one on here knew for certain if it would work or not.

So i took a gamble to see if it would work and alas its my duty to say it doesnt work

Maybe some to clarify that i am doing it correctly :

Neokey switch on the left
Insert DVD region free disk (no dongle)
Screen appears
Take out DVD disk
Switch Neokey to the right
Insert ps2 CD-r
Close try and choose play DVD movie

Then i get the message unable to read disc.

Im going to try choosing each region to see anything changes or not, but if someone could clarify what im doing is correct it would be much appreicated.

Also is it possible to use the AR2v2 disc to overcome this problem? and does it need to be burnt onto a DVD-r or a CD-r?

Many thanks and sorry for the questions

I've never seen one of these region free disks but on the region x you don't choose a region instead you do the disk swap then press start.

A burnt copy of an action replay won't help you as it won't boot. If you could boot the burnt copy from your region free disk then you could boot a ps2 backup.
