If you go to `Device Manager` select your drive and look at `DVD Regions`, it needs to be either `Region 1` or `Not Selected` to play those CDs.

However, be aware that you can only change the region a set number of times befor you need to buy a new DVD player. This is a software restriction and unless someone else knows how to override the lock you will be stopped by the DVD itself.
