    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.

    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.
