I am not sure if it has been made clear that you will not be able to
read DVDs region X if you set your DVD drive to region Y. You can change
this region a limited number of time (5 IIRC).

If you want real freedom to read all DVDs, you need to flash the drive
firmware with a modified one (best solution) or use a tool to erase the 
region change counter to give you your five changes back.

I don't know if such tools are available for your drive. If someone has
some good urls to figure it out, feel free to send them.
