Region coding is done by the player software. So I guess it depends on what you're using as a player. ram911 January 3, 2012 12:21:07 AM My external ASUS blu ray player burner requires you to select the region you want the player to be. You are allowed to change it up to 5 times. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Are Blu-Ray Drives region free ?
