I’m running Windows XP sp2, and am having trouble updating region settings on the internal DVD drive. I recently moved back to the states with this US bought PC and cannot change the DVD settings back to region 1.
this is the error message
DVD Region Change Error
Unable to update region settings. Please make sure the drive contains a region 1 media and you have administrative privileges
(I have 3 changes remaining)
Is this a software/registry thing or hardware issue?
This is what I’ve tried
- Control Panel>Admin Tools>Computer Mgt. shortcut>Systems Tools>Device Mgr.>DVD/CD Rom Drives>Samsung DVD-ROM SD-616E
then select the DVD region tab and try to change things up and get prompted with the error above.
I’m so bummed about this that perhaps I’ll be forced to buy another DVD drive. I have little money to spare … any help would be much appreciated …
