Are there issues in Windows 7 where changing the region on one of your DVD drives will also change the region on the other drive?
I have a LiteOn iHAS424-98 drive and a Sony CRX300E drive (legacy IDE). The Sony drive was left in the system to play region 2 discs. I set the Sony drive to region 2, but that apparently changed the region setting on my Lite-On drive. When I changed it back on the Sony drive, my Lite-On drive stayed region 2, so I had to change it back also. I would prefer to use only the old drive for my region 2 DVDs.
I can't play with this too much or I'll run out of times that I can change the regions. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I tried disabling the Lite-On drive through the Device Manager, then changing the Sony drive's region, and finally re-enabling the Lite-On drive. That seemed to work. I have no idea how or why the Lite-On drive had its region setting changed the first time I tried it, though. I'd hope that those extra steps aren't necessary...
