    anydvd pops up with a message everytime i place this one dvd in the drive. It says unable to find code do to region mismatch and that i need to set my dvd drive region to the same as the dvd to avoid this error in the future. Does anyone know how to do this.

    1) You can usually ignore that error message, and Anydvd will still work properly.

    2) If it still doesn't work properly, this is what you do (these instructions assume you're using Windows XP)

    1. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
    2. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
    3.Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
    4. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
    5. Click "properties".
    6. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
    7. Select the region that matches the region on the disc
    8. Start Anydvd
    9. click the fox icon on your toolbar. Go to Video dvd--->settings
    10. Change the default to match the region on the disc
    11. Click Ok

    No problem. Normally, you can just ignore that error message from Anydvd though; it's usually nothing to be overly concerned about.
