I am running Windows Media XP and for some stupid reason, my region code is set to 1 (I am in region 4). I’ve tried changing it to 4 (Windows tells me I have one change left) but it won’t let me. Tells me to put in a region 4 DVD (which I had already) and asks me whether I am the administer (I’m the only user and it’s not networked). I have had DVD free lite loaded on my computer for ages, and yet now cannot run any DVD but region 1. I have uninstalled it, rebooted and tried to change the region code, same message. I downloaded the new DVD free lite, installed it and still no luck. The same message comes up when i try to change it via device manager. The DVD free lite is still running. What can i do? I figure it’s something in the registry but I’ve had my fingers burned fiddling with the registry before … as in crash and burn.
Any help would be appreciated.
