I use WinDVD and/or Windows Media Player to play DVDs on my computers. In the past I had no trouble playing PAL discs, but now there are problems.

The new (trial) version of WinDVD (v 7) simply won't play PAL, and Media Player produces an image without sound.

On another (newer) computer I'm using version 4 of WinDVD. When I try to play PAL I have to change the region setting, and it tells me I can only do this one more time before the setting is changed permanently.

If you have any insight into this, or know of region-free drives, please contact me offlist: (address suppressed) Thanks, Gene.
