I am new to this, so please forgive any dumb questions! Also, I am only semi- computer literate.
I am hoping you can help.
I have just purchased a Pioneer DVR-110D writer. (I also have a Pioneer DVD-120S on the same computer)
I have tried multiple times to change the region from 1 to 4. My computer will not let me. It comes up with the message “Unable to change setting. Please make sure the drive contains a Region 4 media and you have administrator privilege.”
It is a stand alone computer, I am the only user (my home computer). There is no password at bootup because I am the only one who uses it, so I believe I have Admin privileges.
(I am trying to change it through Control Panel > System > Device manager > Advanced Settings)
The DVD writer is brand new and tells me (in Advanced Settings) that I can change the region setting 4 more times.
Is there another way of changing the region. It is causing problems because I bought the drive for backup purposes, but it only records in Region 1 format. Other drives will not read it.
BTW, my sytem is an AMD Athlon 1.8GHz, 512 RAM, 120 Gb hard disk running Windows 2000.
