PostRegion code hack posted by JHebert, October 24 2001:

This is the ultimate DVD player hack.
A standard IDE hard drive can be connected to the
Sampo DV620 and DV631CF as a slave device to
the the DVD drive. This allows playback of MP3,
JPEG, and MPEG files stored on the hard drive.
This ability is provided by the firmware interface for
the CompactFlash card reader built in to the
DV631CF. The CF reader is simply replaced by an
IDE hard drive and the player recognizes it. The
DV620 can be flashed with the DV631CF firmware
to enable hard drive support on the DV620. Here is
the link with detailed info and pictures:
Also check the nerd-out Sampo forum for updates.
