PC DVD Player regional lockouts
This may be better suited for Moe's, but I figured I'd start here.
I'm working on a Win7 PC, and the region on the DVD has been reset several times and wound up on region 2 when the counter ran out, the computer is not in region 2. So we're out of region resets on the system.
According to some looking around I've done, it seems the region resets are stored both in the operating system software and a counter in the hardware itself, so there's no easy registry edit to let me go in and change the number of resets or the region that's registered.
I'm wondering if replacing the optical drive would reset the counter and let me set it to Region 1, or if the software side of that counter will cause that to fail; but I haven't had much luck getting a straight forward yes or no on that front.
Well except what see317 said. That guy's always wrong.
