    New external drive came along with my new dell computer. I get the following anydvd message when trying to use it. I checked the region of the writer and it's region 1 so I don't know why it is saying region not set in the first section or how to make this thing work so I can make backups of movies. Any advice appreciated!

    You region is not set, you have to exit out of AnyDVD (right click on the fox icon on the taskbar and choose 'exit') then set the drive region in Windows. If AnyDVD is running it tricks Windows into thinking the region is set

    Still not working...

    I had the exact same issue as the original post, but this did not work for me. Here's what I've done after attempting to complete the above steps without success:

    Closed AnyDVD > Opened Task Manager > Stopped all AnyDVD processes > Right-clicked on the hard drive; selected properties > Hardware > Properties > DVD Region

    It states in Current Region: Region 1. I even tried selecting the US as the new region. That had no affect at all. I've been having this issue over 7 months now.
