DVD Region problem

  djsew 22:17 15 Aug 2007

My daughter bought a 2nd user laptop, took it to India, tried to play a Region 2 DVD, not possible as the Region Code was set to 1 with no choices left to effect change. Whoops!
Are there any hacks/fixes for this problem as, being a laptop, it's not unreasonable to carry this item around the world and want to use it to play local DVDs wherever you may be...

Kit is Dell Inspiron 5100, Win XP Pro SP2, Samsung CDRW/DVD SN324F.

I think the only way around this is with a check on Samsungs website for a 'Firmware' update. I have had little success with a programme called 'DVDRegion Free' or something like that. do a google search for it.

Or Download Driveinfo this will tell you if the dvdplayer is firmware upgradable and try dvd genie
