Intervideo WinDVD 5 came with my laptop, which I use quite a bit to watch DVD's. The problem is that I am living in India, and have had to change the region quite often in order to allow the movies to play. After my alloted number of changes of region are up, how am I supposed to watch movies?

The Vaio / Sony combo DVD drives are renowned to be some of the worst on the market. Sony puts the cheapest cr*p in their laptop and it should be no surprise that after a couple of reads (10+) and writes (10+), your combo drive will be as good as junk... dead weight in your laptop. You'll also hear strange repetitive noises coming from it. I have 3 solutions: 1) Go to the Vaio support site, type your model number to get its page and search DVD upgrade firmware. This should 2 files. One is a .bin and the other is an executable to flash the drive with that .bin file. If the problem still persists then bad news. 2) Buy a USB2 external combo drive. This should be real cheap nowadays. 3) Check impactcomputers for a replacement internal drive. Prices have come down but still quite pricey.
Also if you can let those f*cks at Vaio know what you had to go through, that'd be great.
Did you try with some types of DVDs? If with all are the same result, it might be the setting or there is real a problem with the player software.
I m not so familiar with winDVD.
