Thread Name: Tech: Which DVD player to buy?
Subject: RE: Tech: Which DVD player to buy?
McGrath, BEWARE, the DVD player you hope to put in your PC should play all discs + and - R as for region if you play region 2 discs all the time no problem but if you buy region 1 discs (for instance on Ebay from USA) the DVD ROM will only allow you to change regions 5 times and then it is fixed to the last region you play. At the moment I don't think there's a way round this as it's burned into the DVD rom firmware, there is software on the net to allow you to play "region free" but it's going to cost, I haven't done the sums but I doubt if there's much difference between the cost of software and buying a seperate DVD rom.How much was the DVD you were looking to get?
