    Might not be so useful in french but the following is take from my dvd beginners guide:
    http://news.inmatrix.com/dvdguide/dvdguide.shtml

    Windows2000/XP contains extra region protection, you can view your current 2000/XP region code by doing the follwing:

    Right click on my computer and go to Properties, Hardware and then do device manager. Then go to DVD/CD-ROM drives and right click on your DVDROM. Go to the DVD Region tab and this will tell you your internal region code.

    Normally you will have a region selected with one region change remaining.
    Most software DVD players now use this internal region code, except:
    PowerDVD, it uses its own 5 changes system, use DVD Genie.
    WinDVD 3, this player does use the internal region code by default but you can modify the registry to make it use its own 5 region counter, use DVD Genie, you must modify the following registry value:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\InterVideo\WinDVD]
    "IOCTLFIRST"=dword:00000001

    There is a way of resetting the region counter to two choices left after every reboot, but requires manually modifying the registry:
    Load RegEdit and go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft].
    You should see a random looking random letter key (e.g. " d-`%" ").
    If you have a region set, inside this key there is one REG_QWORD value, delete the data that it contains, do not delete this key.
    Export the key and save it to C:\Windows (or another such folder)
    Create a shortcut in your start menu startup folder that says the following:
    regedit.exe /s c:\windows\regfile.reg

    Now everytime that you boot Windows2000/WindowsXP you will have two region choices.
