Your DVD will play provided you have some out of area options left (I think you get 4 goes before your player locks up on one region).
However, if you look up Slysoft.com and download AnyDVD, you can indefinitely play DVDs from regions around the world.
I travel from Europe to the Far East using the prog and my player still has 4 goes left (ie the system has been stopped). The program is totally transparent and has a minimal footprint.
And it was a fair question. This software will allow you to purchase DVDs from anywhere without worrying about regional issues. Most of our living room DVD players these days are multi-regional, why should our computer DVD players be any different?
