Playing DVD movies
Note: This feature is only available on certain models.
When the DVD drive module is installed in the optical drive bay, you can play
DVD movies on your computer.
Eject the DVD disk.
Important! When you launch the DVD player for the first time, the
program asks you to enter the region code. DVD disks are divided
into 6 regions. Once your DVD drive is set to a region code, it will
play DVD disks of that region only. You can set the region code a
maximum of five times (including the first time), after which the
last region code set will remain permanent. Recovering your hard
disk does not reset the number of times the region code has been
set. Refer to the table below for DVD movie region code
The DVD movie will automatically play after a few seconds.
Country or region

Note: To change the region code, insert a DVD movie of a
different region into the DVD drive. Please refer to the online
help for more information.
