Yep a complete newbie here, so I hope this is in the right place.
I have just bought a LiteOn 451s DVD writer and have connected it up and everything however it won't play DVDs (CDs work fine). It seems after looking at the hardware profile that the region code is not set to anything. When I try to change the region to the appropriate code (in my case 4, AUstralia) I get an error message saying that I need a suitable region media in the drive and Admin privledges. I have a purchased Reg 4 Movie in the drive (in this case Harry Potter, and I have tried others) and I am the administrator.
Can anyone offer any advicde as to how to set the initial DVD Region?
I am running on Win 200 Professional, with 256M ram, P4 2.6GHz with 80G HD. The only issue is I already have a DVD Combo drive from Samsung (which does work fine) and I have already tried removing this drive (which didn't work).
ANyway any help would be great.
