DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):

The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as movies). Currently, the motionpicture industry has divided the worldinto different regions or zones thatcorrespond to the regional markets intowhich the motion picture industry releasesmovies. Simply put, RPC codes are placedon movies marketed throughout the world,based on the region of the world inwhich they are being sold. These

RPCcodes help control and prevent piratingof new movies into other motion pictureregions prior to their true releasedates within those markets.

The SM-348 COMBO drive supports RPCphase II. In the RPC-2 mode, the localcode can be changed by users. RPC-2is selected by default for the SM-348 COMBO drive.

You can change the region code up tofive times via an MPEG application.

Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you wish tochange the local code more than fivetimes.
