Default DVD - Hard Drive

I have a JDM Legacy WR Ltd 2 litre Turbo 5MT. Fitted to it is the Touch Screen Sat Nav and information system. The Sat Nav is about as much use as a chocolate ashtray in the UK and the langauge is in Japanese as is the voice. That being said, a number of features are simple to use and access. To change the system would cost me GB 2300 ($4600 !!!!! ) It does have some very good features including internet access and personal organiser software.

I have tried to upload the UK/Europe DVD but have had no success, computer says "No" but in Japanese. I am not bothered about the Sat Nav but am very interested in the Driver Information stuff.



You can see the screen (just) in this picture. Sorry it's crap but I'll take another.

I have a few questions which may help my search.

1. Can change the hard drive to accept UK/Europe DVD's?

2. Anyone in the US have a spare one or one for sale? Not bothered about the Sat Nav.

3. Is there software I can upload from DVD/CD to change the data to English?

Any help is appreciated.

Regards

Ian

It's probably a regional issue. Try contacting Subaru of Japan about a DVD from them in English?

I have contacted Kenwood UK. They are looking at an equivalent UK Hard Drive, I have been quoted $700 (UK 364) for a new Unit. So, I may have some success.

Took most of the underdash/glove box out and took some pics of the unit so I am hoping that will help. I'll save about $3200 (1800) by not going via Subaru UK.
