what kinds of discs can this take?

I know its a weird question but discs have different region labels like; Region 1: U.S., U.S. Territories, Canada, and Bermuda;
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt. I know mine plays american discs (region 1) but the movie I want only comes in a region 2 formant (unless I want to spend upwards of $80, which I don't). Does any one know if it would play region 2?

    I have this SuperDrive attached to my Mac Pro. According to the System Profiler it handles the following formats:

    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO

    According to Apple's Support Communities the region of the SuperDrive DVD player can be changed up to five times, on the fifth change the region is permanently locked within the drive. If you plan on collecting DVDs from different regions you may need to have a DVD drive (Apple or otherwise) for each region.
