What is the source of the videos, Camcorder/VHS/PC ?? I don't think you can change from within the laptop, but need a bit more information.

I assume that you are talking about dvd's. To start with if they are region one (USA)then you wil have to change the region on your dvd drive, but remember you can only change it about five times then it is locked,

You can change ntsc to pal and vice versa with Ifo edit it does not actually change the format but fools the system into thinking it is Pal .First you have to rip the dvd to your hard drive assuming of course it is not copywrite protected .Though I guess as said you mean region change

I know it can be changed in the laptop beause I did it on my last laptop but I cant remember how I did it.
So now I am looking for some HELP.

OK - it was probably something to do with codecs, but I would still like more info re the videos, you have not said whether DVD/Camcorder etc. OS might also help.
