• AnyStream is having some DRM issues currently, download with some streaming providers (Netflix) might not always be available in HD.
    Situations like this will always happen with AnyStream: streaming providers are continuously improving their countermeasures while we try to catch up, it's an ongoing cat-and-mouse game. Please be patient and don't flood our support or forum with requests, we are working on it 24/7 to get it resolved - but it will take a few days. Thank you.

I installed AnyDVD, CloneDVD2 and Virtual CloneDrive (Vista 6.0 Home Premium on Compaq V6205NR). On first use AnyDVD hung. Windows Media Player now displays "Your system is set to DVD region 1. To play this DVD, set your system to region 1." Next window shows "Current Region: Not Selected" and issues a severely worded caution on the limited number of region changes (5). See Attached.

If this happens at each AnyDVD use WMP will soon stop. Advise How to fix.

If you're using XP: Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager/DVD-CDRom Drives. Right-click on the DVD you are using Properties/DVD Region. You can check and/or change the region here. It will warn you that you can only set or change it 5 times.
 
Thanks for the replies. I will set the region. I am more worried that this is a defect in the SW and it will happen again and lock Media Player.

BTW - Does the copy process modify the DVD in any way?
Notice to all - I am a very novice (but old) dvd user.

No. AnyDVD will make the back-up region free, but the back-up process does nothing to the burner or original. A lot of drives that you buy retail will come region free and you need to set it to your region. Those that come pre-installed generally have the region already set.
 
I now have an easier mind. Thank all of you for your kindness. - Coaluser
