I have a friend who wants me to create a DVD using pictures from a project in iMovie 09. I am in region one. Can I change the region to four before I burn a DVD in iDVD 09? If so, I then want to change it back to region one.
I'm trying to store a 6.7 gb file onto my ipod nano (3rd gen) and it is formatted as FAT32 so its max file size is around 4gb. Is there a format that will allow me to store up to 6.7gb in a single file and if so how can I format my ipod to it.
SL has this new feature where you can display the date in the menu bar beside the clock. However, it shows my date as "Oct 27" even though I set my date format as "27 Oct". Is there any way to change this?
I know how to change Icons when they are in the Ico format but now everytime I download Icon packs the files are coming in PNGs and I have no clue how to make a png my Icon. I'd prefer to be able to do just that if there is a way, if not then is there a free converter? For some reason neither IConverter or PngtoIco will work for me. (I am on Tiger)
I am getting tired of using Microsoft Entourage for my POP3 email and I want to move over to the Mail app. Is there a way in Entourage to export all my mail into a format that Mail can import all of my old/existing emails?
When you share (mail) an .aif file with Quicktime Pro, why does it become a .mov file when it arrives? I asked a friend of mine not to send .mov files when he wants me to listen to a song .aif format. I told him to check the preferences, he says all is set right.
on a macbook pro, you can only change the DCD region 5 times. I accidentally changed it 5 times and now it's stuck on the european region, which means that i can't watch american dvds. Â can I re-set my dcd region or do I have to go to the store? Â Â i was living abroad and that is why i had to switch so many times.
I have a problem playing DVDs on my 2007 MacBook. I recently watched a DVD in region code 1, and now I want to go back to region code 2. I have done this a couple of times, but I still have one chance left (or so DVD Player tells me). Yet when I try to change back, I get an error reading Error: - 70001. Can anyone help? It says I still have one try left???
When I first got my macbook I changed the region the 5 times you are allowed without realising that there was a limit.I had recently got a region 1 DVD and wanted to play it so I kept changing the region to region 1 and it eventually stuck on that. This is a problem because 99% of my DVDs are actually region 2 so I can't watch any of them. I didn't know there was a limit to changing it or I wouldn't have changed and now I feel pretty desperate because it was just a mistake and now I can't watch any of my DVDs on it.
The notorious Matsushita UJ-857(D) firmware has at last been cracked, thanks to ben11 from rpc1.org. He has released region-free updates for the HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, and KCVB revisions.
Before I provide the download links, here's the obligatory disclaimer:
WARNING: DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU ARE UNCONFIDENT ABOUT THE FLASHING PROCESS. IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG YOU ARE LIABLE FOR DRIVE REPAIR. THE FOLLOWING IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND IS NOT WARRANTED. FLASHING YOUR DRIVE IS IN VIOLATION OF APPLECARE TERMS
Now, take these steps before you do anything:
1. Check that you have a UJ-857 or UJ-857D drive with revisions HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, or KCVB. This can be done by going to the Apple Menu>About This Mac>More Info. This will open up System Profiler. Click on ATA and the Model number and Revision number will be listed. If it looks OK proceed to step 3.
2. If you have a UJ-857(D) drive but the revision number is NOT one of the four listed (HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, or KCVB), then you have not applied the Superdrive Update 2.1 which Apple released in June. You will need to apply this update BEFORE PROCEEDING. This update is no longer available from Apple so you can download it here. Once you have done so, proceed to step 3.
3. Download DVDInfoX to check whether you have a region set. YOU MUST HAVE PLAYED A DVD IN THIS DRIVE AND SET A REGION IN ORDER TO PROCEED. A correctly set drive will produce something along the lines of this using DVDInfoX:
Vendor: MATSHITA Model: DVD-R UJ-857D Firmware: KBVB RPC-2 (region locked) State is SET 4 vendor resets left 3 region changes left Region 2
If "State" is "SET", you are ready to flash your drive.
4. Download the correct RPC-1 (Region-Free) update.
UJ-857 Revision HAEA
UJ-857 Revision HBEA
UJ-857D Revision KBVB
UJ-857D Revision KCVB.
5. Read the included README and then proceed to opening the "Update to region free" application. The process will start immediately. DO NOT INTERRUPT THE FLASHING IN ANY WAY - it will result in a broken drive. Also, there are only a certain number of times the drive can be flashed so be very very careful. I suggest you restart the computer and shut down any other application that is running before you run the update - just to be safe.
One note: the flashing will probably hang at 60%, and then again at 90%. This is normal. Just be patient and let it finish. Do not panic and do anything stupid.
6. If everything goes well, the flashing will finish and it will ask you to restart. Once you have done that, you can open DVDInfoX and check that the drive has been flashed. A correctly flashed drive will show something along these lines:
7. That's it. Make sure to download Region X to change the region of the drive before you play DVDs. The drive is region-free, but you must still change the region manually to play DVDs from different regions.
I had until now only used my macbook with "local" DVD from Region 2. I have a few weeks ago watched one single DVD from region 1, and had therefore to accept the region change in the pop-up dialog. I did accept knowing I would reverse to region 2 after.
I have not read an DVD until today, hen I am trying to load again a region 2 DVD.
Problem: DVd player or Handbrake do not see the DVD, (but VLC can), and I see no dialog offering me to change the region code.
1) where can I see what is my current setting? 2) how can I get DVD player Mac OS X to present that dialog, so that I can reverse to region 2?
I'm using Macbook Pro(2010, 10.6.6) and a PC with Windows 7. I need to transfer image files from both laptops to an external drive. I formatted the external drive in exFAT and wanted to know if there are any problems that might occur in the future. I already know there is an issue with such programs as Carbon Copy Cloner. I primarily need the drive for backup of the images and not system backups. Do you have any file corruption or other problems formatting in exFAT?
I'm running Snow Leopard on my new Macbook Pro. I've got a 1.5TB External hard drive that I'm trying to figure out how to format in HFS+ with Apple Partition Map. I can figure out how to format in HFS using Disk Utility, however it still does it in GUID format and I do not know how to do it in Apple Partition Map.
Googleing this for hours has lead with all kinds of information on how to go to GUID FROM Apple Partition Map but not the other way around. I know GUID is the new hottness.. but this drive will be used exclusively to connect to my XBOX 360 and it supposedly only reads HFS+ when its formatted with Apple Partition Map. (I have tried it with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID, and the XBOX does NOT recognize it) I do not want to use Fat 32, (I know that that is the other major option) beacuse it limits file size.
I am considering ordering a Mac Mini from Apple's Hong Kong store which I presume will have DVD region flags set for 3 and 6 which will cover me in China where I am living now. When I moved here, I reflashed the firmware on my Dell business notebooks with a region free firmware. I am wondering if I will be able to make the mini DVD drive region free so I can play my HK and China DVD's as well as my US DVD's?
Also, I will be purchasing a new 15" MBP also from HK and will want to mod that DVD drive as well so hopefully I can get both answers here.
The new macbook's have the following:MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868: Firmware Revision:KA13....Is there any chance this is going to be cracked? If so, where should I be looking. I find it ridiculous that a laptop isn't region free!
I just inserted a DVD into my mac mini for the very first time. It says I get to change the region five times (or ten, I dont remember), but my question is if it is possible to make the mac mini permanently region free, so it can read any DVD at any given time
I have a question regarding regions on DVD's. In the UK we are on region 2, I want to buy a DVD from the US. I am only allowed 4 times to change the region on my Imac before it presumably locks it's self to which ever region was the last one used??
Does anyone know how to (a) over-ride this lock down & (b) allow me to burn the region 1 DVD onto a region 2 disc so I can watch it on my TV??
If you are interested I want series 4 of Weeds. They showed the first 3 series in the UK & then stopped...... so annoying!!
