Need help from the computer gurus on the OG.
I'd like to be able to watch some Region II DVDs for movies and series that aren't available in the U.S. I have a MacBook Pro.
My understanding is that any laptop DVD drive will let you switch to watch DVDs from another region, but you can only do it 4 or 5 times before the drive is locked to that region and you can no longer watch Region I DVDs.
My question is, if I buy an external DVD drive (like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-External-Super-Drive-Apple--MacBook/dp/B007FUDKB4/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1445035483&sr=8-7&keywords=external+DVD+drive+for+mac) and hook it up to my laptop, can I use that as my Region II DVD player? In other words, if it locks up and only allows me to play Region II DVDs on that drive after 4 or 5 tries, will that affect my laptop or will I still be able to watch Region I DVDs on my internal drive?
Help would be appreciated.
