Default Dvd Region Free ?

Hi

I have a Dell Laptop with a DVD-RW 4x Burner .

I bought my Dell Laptop in Europe , Now I m going to USA for a few month .

The problem is that I can only watch DVDs from Europe , but I want to watch to DVDs in USA .

So does anyone of you now the Programm DVD Region Free ? Can I get any problems on my Laptop if I install it on my system ?

Do you use DVD Region Free , does it work good ?

Thank you very much "

DVD Genie only overcomes region protection in software players. It only works if you have flashed region-free firmware to your drive first.

Should do -- but try the demo before you fork out money!

PS -- An alternative is "Remote Selector". This is a lot cheaper, has been around longer and has a demo version as well.

I think it all depends on your system which program, AnyDVD or DVD Region Free is best. I personally have tried both programs and DVD Region Free kept freezing up my system. I now use AnyDVD and have had no problems at all. I have WinDVD 4 on my computer. Hope this helps.
