I recently bought a movie over seas from Europe. It is, obviously, a region 2 DVD. Is there anyway i can change my region code on my dvd-rom so i can watch it?

Check out http://www.7thzone.com/cgi-bin/page....page=dvddrives first. Find your drive on the list to see if it's region locked or not. If it isn't, then you just need a hack/patch for your player program. If the drive itself is region locked, you'll also need to upgrade the firmware in order to unlock it. Read the rest of the PC-DVD section of their site, and it'll tell you just bout everything you need to know about DVD on your PC.
