Use VLC. Play all your dvds on your computer without worrying about region

You can actually change the region on your CD/DVD drive in your computer to whatever region u want. However, u can only change it a limited number of times. Just go into the "Properties" of your DVD drive and look around there, and eventually, u should be able to find a "Region" tab or something like that in which u can change it to whatever u want.

You can only change the region of a specific drive around 5 times until it locks itself.

Just do what Bbrou said and use VLC, works like a champ. Also region free DVD players are actually not that expensive, I was shopping for a blu ray player a couple weeks ago and I actually found almost nothing but region free ones.

Since your question is answered I will go ahead and lock and close this one... For the record though if you ever need to ask any question relating to stuff in the CR store like DVD's or other merchandise feel free to post about it in the support forums so our CR Staff can more easily locate it and help you out!

Thanks for using CR, and buying our DVDs!
