    Has anybody had any problems with region codes when playing a backup (vob file) from an external drive using Media Player?

    I remove the region code options in AnyDVD and create a backup to my external drive using DVD Shrink and Media Player gives a region code error. If I copy the exact same file to my local harddrive Media Player plays it just fine. If I share the folder on my external drive and open it in Media Player from the shared location, it plays just fine. However, when I load the file directly from the drive I get a region code error.

    I would just always use the network location, however I also want to stream it through my XBox using Transcode360, which works as long as the file isn't a netwok location. I need both Media Center on my PC and on my XBox to play the same file.
