OK I have turned anydvd hd off and rebooted the PC only to try to play this DVD so the region on the drive is set but always fails for some reason. I get this in windows media player : I thought I already set the region but apparently not. I went into properties on this drive and it states region 1 but the anydvd info window states region 0 region not set.
