About USB
USB (Universal Serial Bus), a means of attaching devices to your
computer, is basically a standardized intelligent serial connection which
1
provides an expandable, hot-pluggable* interface. Devices suitable for
USB range from simple items like mice and keyboards to more
complicated devices like printers, MP3 players, and storage devices.
One other benefit of USB is plug and play. That is, when you plug the
USB device in, it is automatically detected, drivers installed and then
ready for operation.
USB 2.0 supports data transfer at up to 480Mbps for high-speed
devices. It is backward compatible with USB 1.1*2 software and
peripherals. If your computer doesn’t have a built-in USB 2.0 port, you
need to install a USB 2.0 PCI host card in your pc for the CD-RW drive
to run at USB 2.O speed. Otherwise, this CD-RW drive will run at
standard USB speed.
1
* You can connect and disconnect devices while the computer is
running.
2
* USB 1.1 can transfer data at rates up to 12Mb/s.
2
System Requirements
For IBM compatible PCs, the system requirements recommended are
as follows:
♦
Pentium III, 850MHz or above with at least 256MB of memory
♦
Minimum 1GB free Hard Disk space
♦
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP
♦
USB 2.0 PCI host card (If there’s no USB 2.0 built-in port on
board.)
We recommend that you use motherboards with built-in USB 2.0
connectors. If USB 2.0 host card is used, the reading speed of DVD might
be influenced.

DVD Region Coding
Region Playback Control Management
All DVD Video Playback systems have “Region Playback Control”
management (RPC) which is required by Hollywood movie industry
and defined by DVD Forum. This includes DVD-Video players and
PC systems with DVD-Video capability. You can only play DVDVideo discs with the same region code as your DVD-Video Playback
system.
As for DVD-ROM drives, one kind of the DVD-Video Playback
system, there are 2 types:
RPC Phase 1 (as RPC1): RPC1 drives do not have built-in hardware
support for region management. DVD-ROM drives of this kind don’t
play a part in controlling the playback region. It solely depends on
the decoder.
RPC Phase 2 (as RPC2): RPC2 drives maintain the region change
count information in hardware, and in general, the region of such
drives can be changed up to 5 times by the end users under some
software decoder (e.g. PowerDVD).
And referring to the region codes, there are 6 regions worldwide, and
normally, there is a region code mark on the package of DVD titles. :
Region 1: Canada, US
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including
Egypt)
Region 3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)
Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America,
Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean
Region 5: Eastern Europe, Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea,
and Mongolia
Region 6: China
10
About This Drive
This drive is also a RPC2 DVD-ROM drive and according to DVDForum, PC chip must be designed into DVD-ROM drives to record
how many times a user has changed the region code. The first
region code will depend on the DVD title you play and you are
allowed to modify the region code 5 times (including the initial one).
After the fifth alteration, the region code will be locked and only those
DVD titles of the same region code could be played afterwards, so
set the code carefully.
