Microsoft in “need” of old DVD drives for testing



It sounds like Microsoft Windows Vista will not support old DVD drives when it ships. By old, I’m talking about drives that don’t support the region selection limits that newer drives have. (In other words, they won’t support old drives that are effectively region free.) Supposedly this is because they lack the older drives to test.


There is a tongue in cheek suggestion… package up your old (pre 2000) dvd drives and send them to MS so they can be supported. Of course, most “content providers” greatly dislike the fact that these “region free” drives exist.
