HELP! DVD writer. Cannot change region setting.
on Nov 16, 2005 at 2:12:42 pm

Hi all,
I am new here so hope you will forgive any dumb questions. I am hoping you can help.

I have just purchased a Pioneer DVR-110D writer. (I also have a Pioneer DVD-120S on the same computer)

I have tried multiple times to change the region from 1 to 4. My computer will not let me. It comes up with the message "Unable to change setting. Please make sure the drive contains a Region 4 media and you have administrator privilege."

It is a stand alone computer, I am the only user (my home computer). There is no password at bootup because I am the only one who uses it, so I believe I have Admin privileges.

(I am trying to change it through Control Panel > System > Device manager > Advanced Settings)

The DVD writer is brand new and tells me (in Advanced Settings) that I can change the region setting 4 more times.

Is there another way of changing the region. It is causing problems because I bought the drive for backup purposes, but it only records in Region 1 format. Other drives will not read it.

PLEASE help!

many thanks

Craig

Sorry, should have added that I am running an AMD Athlon 1.8GHz, 512 MB RAM, 120 Gb hard disk, running Windows 2000
