Vaio laptop & Region Free

Guys,

I've just got a Vaio laptop and put region free on it so I can watch my R1 & R2 DVD's on whilst traveling, it came with WinDVD5 pre-installed but I cant play any region DVD's on it, it comes up with "Not allowed to play in this region" message in WinDVD even when manually set to the right region :confused:

Any ideas?

I think you misunderstood, I put DVD Region Free on it (DVDidle), I'm aware of the Region coding issues this is one of 5 HTPC's in the house although the only one running WinDVD.

I have a similiar laptop and i think the dvd drive needs to be flashed. There is no firmware flash for this drive available as yet for region coding. I am assuming your drive is a Pioneer as most vaio laptops have pioneer drives on them.For more info on drive codings try this
