I went to the 7th zone site and downloaded a firmware upgrade for my Creative Labs 5x DVD drive (5240E). I ran the upgrade.bat file, but I keep on getting a time out error. I even read the directions, but they didn't help me out much. They were VERY technical. If you need more info, I can answer any questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Have you tried DVDGenie? If you look around you could find a copy. I myself haven't used it but I have a version of it lying around somewhere. I think it may be a no no to post a link to it though. If you can't find it anywhere give a holler.

taliboubou - Although the DVDGenie did not work for me because I use Creative's player, you really helped me out. I went searching! Can't believe I didn't think of it. I went to google, and searched for creative region free dvd and found a different site which had some different software. I downloaded it, and it worked perfectly. Now I can watch While You Were Sleeping on Region 2 again. Thanks a lot!
