Should I set dvd burner to region 1?

I live in the united states and our region is 1. I burned a dvd and tried to play it with windows media player and it said bad region or something. I checked in windows hardware and no region is selected for my nec 3540a.

is nero susposed to automatically assign the region as 1 or should i manually assign it.

Region settings are only for purchased/kosher DVDs. Home-made one’s don’t have region settings. The bad region message refered to your media/burn being faulty.
