    You can change the DVD region only for a limitted number of times.
    U can change the region 5 times only.After this limit the region is remain permanent and u can’t change the region even the OS is reinstalled,or even the drive is palced in any other system.
    u can check this through the device manager >DVD/CD rom drives>selsct the drive right click > selsct the properties.Select thr DVD region tab. u can see the no of changes left.

    i dont think this setting is critical in the dvd play back.my Sony DVD RW and DVD ROM drive’s region is not selected and i can paly back all the dvd s in both drives without any problems.

    if you think this is necessary in dvd play back, try the “anydvd” software to playback DVDs in all regions.

    Most of the DVD s need some more times to read even the fresh DVDs.

    AnyDVD is a filter driver and is running invisibly on your computer. You only need to insert a CSS and/or Region Code protected DVD into your DVD-Rom drive. Everything else is done by AnyDVD independently. AnyDVD removes automatically CSS and RPC transparently from your computer, while watching or copying.

    it is not a free ware
    u need 2 pay to use it after trial period ends.

    go to slisoft.com for details
