  1. ineed help with the dvd player on my computer is claiming that it changed regions and now it won't play a dvd that i used to watch...
    my questions are:
    how can i make my 'friends' dvd play again and at the same time be ableto still play 'family guy'
    why are all dvds different regions
    why do dvd players have limited amounts of changes
    and why isn't my dvd region killer working i tried it it's on and everything and my 'friends' dvd wont play it just stops immidatly

    Check out DVD Region Free. It's software that is supposed to take all your pain away. :laugh:

    not sure if you've tried this, but DVD Genie allows you to change regions for your dvd player.
    also, if your DVD drive is outside the waranty period, you might like to get a firmware upgrade that allows you to have unlimited changes to the region code.
