    i beg to differ its got to do with the rippers (the person & the tool) .... the region thing means that a dvd of a specific region will play in drives set to tht specific region .... u can only change the region i think max 5 times after that it gets locked to the last region selected ..... so don mess around wiht the region settings of ur drive
