Sounds like you have the required SW but your drive is RPC2 (region protected) is this the situation ???


If so you need to reflash the DVD drives firmware... I guess you know this though ?? I have just checked the main place I look for firmware in, but unfortunately there seems to be no RPC1 patched firmware for the Aopen 1240...


I suggest a lot of searching and some posts on the forums for dVD drive firmware may help you out better than I have... Sorry

There seem to be RPC-1 firmware update for the 1040 (which I have) and the 1640.. but not the 1240.


I would check out these 2 sites though that helped me out..

http://www.geocities.com/progressram.../firmwares.htm

(patches for 1040 and 1640 and a few others)

(bigger firmware page)


Maybe try emailing one of these fellows or else trade your drive with a friend who has a patchable drive (which is what I did).
