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 drive to run at USB 2.O speed.
Otherwise, this 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.

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. Power DVD).
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

About This Drive
This DVD±R/RW Writer is also a RPC2 DVD-ROM 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. 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.
