Help - stuck!

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]I was using the DVD Idle software on a notebook without any problem. However, I have now changed the notebook and reinstalled the software. This was the start of the problem!

The new notebook was preset to Region 2 and it would not play a region 1 DVD, even after installing the DVD Idle software. I have tried changing the region code to region 1 (on the machine) and it will now play region 1, but NOT region 2!

The DVD idle screen opens and the application is running ok - as far as I can see, but the DVDs (in the ‘wrong’ region) don’t play.

The notebook is a Sony VAIO.

Can anyone help or suggest a fix?
