Hello, Will a ntsc DVD play on my computer.I have power DVD software. I know it will not play on my DVD player on my TV. but i was hoping it might play on my PC. I will have to order it from America so i want to be sure. cheers
PowerDVD can play PAL video as well as NTSC video. This is video format issue. DVD region is another matter.
DVD-ROMs produced in recent years are region locked. When you play DVD movie, it will check if the region setting is correct. If not, then PowerDVD will ask you to reset to a new region.
You can only change region settling for any DVD-ROM 4 times, after that it is locked in last setting. If you alway play dvds from the same region, then it is not a problem. But if you play US dvd once and play UK DVD another time, you may run into trouble because you can only change 4 times.
You could install two DVD-ROM, one for US DVD and one for UK DVD.
