I already tried Windows and Linux, to check if the drive would
actually work with retail DVDs at all. Windows told me the RC was set
to 2 (IIRC) and I *can* access the media (more or less) with
atausb(4), so I really think it is CAMs fault. But I'll give the
region-code program from Tijl a try this weekend.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, let's see which one will get me
further on this quest :)
