What exactly do you mean by 'free your drive'? Do you mean, "how to I remove it from my iMac"?

Or do you mean make it region free? There is a good guide here to do that. Search if that's what you are after.

Yes, to free the region code. I tried to look up for the information of how to unlock the dvd drive but it is not avaliable for my particular model. can anyone provide any information or alternative solutions? cheers.

You can watch most dvds of a different region using VLC player, which if you don't have it, is a free download. Just ignore the region change message and open up the disc in VLC and it usually works.

Apparently the newer Matshita drives do not have yet have a way to unlock them. If it is not available for your drive, then that's a poor bit of a luck, but there's not much can be done short of replacing it with an older drive.

First, stop yelling. Second, Google is your friend (http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en-au&q=replace+dvd+drive+in+iMac&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8).
