Those models of DVD-ROM's come with the ability to change Region codes up to 5 times (some with your DVD software, some with the hardware jumper settings).. After that it's locked at the last region you used.

Whats the model number of the DVD-ROM? I might be able to get you more specific information on it.

P.S. Also make sure you use DVD's for your specific region.. would suck to have to buy DVD's from Asia or Europe if you're in the U.S. or AU..

Oh, also.. Cyberlink's PowerDVD XP 4.0 allows you to change it automatically. If you get that message where it's telling you that "This is a Region 1 encoded DVD.. yadda yadda", you have the option to stop and "resume from last frame played" upon pressing Play again. That will get you past that dumb message and play the DVD. Had that happen to me last night.

BTW, where are you located?
