The on-board DVD on this Toshiba laptop has been a bit flakey recently so I bought an external DVD rewriter. I bought the device off Ebay and it is made by some no name company in China. I went to play a film last night and the PC said that the DVD was set to the wrong region. I checked and it was set to Region 2 so, in theory, it should work. Eventually I tried 4 DVDs; two worked perfectly and two came up with the Region error. I was using Windows Media Player Help!
