Regional player error on Cyberlink Power DVD

I cannot play a DVD on my Cyberlink Power DVD DX system. I get the player region error. However, I have played other movies on this computer. The DVD in question is a rental from one of those Redbox vending machines in the grocery store.

    Just got a new Dell with (boo, hiss) Vista. Cyberlink will only play one of my DVDs. All the others (so far) have gotten Region Area messages. What's up?

Playing DVDs from other Regions


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is (DVD-Region Free) now updated replacement program is Passkey for DVD and for Blu-ray discs Passkey for Blu-ray.

These are available from: -

Can play a movie using a dvd


You can play a DVD movie disc on your DVD player provided the Region code on the disc is the same as the Region code that is configured on the DVD player.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or youneed to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.

Aspire one running cyberlink 8.0 plays dvd, but


Verify your DVD player and Sound card is listed without errors in device manager. If there are no errors, try to play the dvd with another program such as windows media player just to try and narrow down the possibilities
