    Burning Illusionist problems

    Has anyone received the Failed to Read DVD error from AnyDVD before? How do I assign a Region to my drive? I am very new to this and I don't speak "IT" very well. Please help?

    Yes, but rarely

    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

    In the future when posting issues with Anydvd, please answer these questions (especially step 8 and 9)
