Question DVD rom

Can anyone help? When installing a new dvd rom i understand i can change region settings up to 5 times. I forgot about this and now the drive will only play region 1 dvd's. Is there anyway of getting the drive to play any region dvd's? I know an reload of the OS makes no difference. Do i have to buy a new dvd rom?

This isnt a dvd rom problem. Its just the software. Luckily you can just try a different software. I use one for my american dvd's (windvd) and the other for my european (powerdvd).

Why is this a problem ? Do you have dvd's in more than 1 format ?
If you travel the world and buy them then thats not easy to solve.
Buy at home.
