I am using XP Pro with service pack 2. I try to use a region 2 disc like it suggests and I am the only person using this PC so I am always signed in with Administration privilege arent I? Or am I missing something?
I downloaded AnyDVD to get me out of this problem for now as it fools the hardware into thinking any disc is the Region 1 it is stuck on. But that runs out shortly as its a trial and to be honest I dont want to pay for something just because there seems to be a problem with both my DVD roms.
I am using a Pioneer DVD106 and a Samsung SD616T. The only method I know to alter the region is to right click on the drive shown in my comp. Go to properties. Click hardware tab then highlight the correct hardware and click properties. Select the Region tab and do the rest.
Is there another way to do this that may work? If not and there is no way out can someone let me know where I can get the region free firmware or similar? Both drives are old now, although they work great so I am prepared to take a chance with firmware upgrades if neccessary.
