    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.

    Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD

    Am I missing something here? Should I just uninstall the drive in the device manager and reboot?
