About USB

USB (Universal Serial Bus), a means of attaching devices to your computer, is basically a standardized intelligent serial connection which provides an expandable, hot-pluggable* 1 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 USB1.1*

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.

System Requirements

For IBM compatible PCs, the system requirements recommended are as follows:

♦ Pentium II, Celeron 400MHz & above with at least 64MB of memory

♦ Sufficient hard disk space (minimum 200MB for installation, 1GB or more is recommended.)

♦ 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 in your PC.)

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 DVD-Video 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)

6

Combo 2408SU, USB 2.0 External Drive

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

About This Combo Drive

This Combo Drive is a RPC2 drive and according to DVD-Forum, PC chip must be designed into DVD-ROM drives to record how many times a user has changed the region code. Once the limit of 5 changes is reached, the drive won't allow you to change the region code any more.

It means the code will be locked and only those DVD titles of the same region code could be played afterwards, so set the code carefully.
