Ok firstly, I don't want region-free, I don't want anything that invalidates my warranty, etc...
My problem: I bught a newDVD drive the other day (from a company called Novatech - http://www.novatech.co.uk
) they are a good company to buy from in my experience and have always sold me quality hardware.
Now... My shiny new dual-Layer DVD-RAM drive works for everything EXCEPT commercial DVDs with region encoding - I can watch a commercial Billy Connoly just fine, but not scrubs season 1 for example. The only difference I can find betwen them is that BC is region 0 and scruibs is region 2.
Now I'm IN region 2 so all OK. I changed the Region for the DVD drive using the windows hardware properties window (as no software came for this with the drive).
However, I still can't play these region 2 DVDs
To clarify: by "can't play" I mean the drive doesn't acknowledge there's a disk inserted - The drive reports it is empty.
I'm not sure if this is the normal situation for a DVD region problem or if it's something else entirely...
Any help greatly appreciated.
