I have a 8300 with a DVD burner and after a month, I decided to use
the burner however it is asking me to change the Region Code as my
current region code is blank. How do I change the code to 4 for
Australia. I cant seem to find this anywhere and Dell have byet to
reply to my emails (2). Sorry if this is a dumb arse question.

It is done in Device Manager.
You need to 'right-click' on the dvd-drive entry in Dev. Mgr and then select
'Properties'.
When the properties window opens you will see several tabs at the top, click
on 'DVD-Region'
Select your region from the list and click Apply.

Just a minor comment!!!

Make sure that you do NOT make too many changes to this setting!! There
is a limit on the number of changes that you can make!!

I think it is a total of 5 & you have already used up 1 life!!

Obviously, if you are going to stick with DVDs solely for your own
region, then you will not need to make any more changes & the above
comment is not relevant!!

Regards,
John

Before you use your second "life", be aware that there is a setting of "0"
which allows all regions to be played on the DVD player. It may not show up and
you may not be able to enter it, but it does exist.
