Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi, Somme years ago I saw a German-made film called "Taxi Zum Clos" at a specialist cinema in Hampstead. Recently, after putting the name into Google.com I found it was available as a DVD with English subtitles but only as a Region 1 version, playable in the U.S. but (I gather), not playable over here in the U.K. where we use aa different Regional coding. Is there any way in which I can get the Rgion 1 version converted to the European Region, should I but the American version? This is a genuin


Answers :

Hi,
\015\012Motion picture studios in the USA want to control the release of movies around the world using different DVD regions codes. DVD Region Locking is a system used to control which DVD movies play on which DVD Players. The regions are broken down as follow:

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada
Region 2 - Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland
Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong
Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Caribbean
Region 5 - Russia (okay, former Russia), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia
Region 6 – China
