    Go to 'My Computer' and right click on your DVD Drive. Click on properties,
    and go to the hardware tab. From there click on your DVD Drive so that is is
    highlighted, and then click properties. Click on the DVD Region tab and then
    select what country you want. eg. if the DVD was brought in India, scroll
    down until you see India. Once the Region is selected, click OK and close out
    of 'My Computer' and you should be albe to watch the DVD.

    NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY CHANGE THE REGION 4 TIMES, AFTER THE 4TH TIME YOU CANNOT
    CHANGE IT AGAIN!!

    4 times, then you'll have to buy a program that erases DVD's zone
    restriction (i.e.: AnyDVD).

    once you've used up your 4 authorized changes, how can you get around this
    (without having to pay for a new program)? It seems unfair to me, I live
    abroad and so I get DVD gifts from abroad, and can no longer view them !
