Changing the DVD drive region code is done in Windows, not in PowerDVD. Right-click on your drive in Windows Explorer and then select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, find/click on the drive type "DVD/CD" and then click Properties again. You should find the DVD Region tab where you can change the region.

Just note that you can only change it a limited number of times. You will see your remaining changes on that tab.

P.S. I have Windows 10, so if you don't, the procedure to find the DVD region tab might be slightly different.

Thanx for your reply...here is my conundrum.....
I moved to the USA from U.K. and took all my regional 2 dvd and Blu-ray disks...so I now have regional 1 disks to play...so how do I switch between the two on my pc without using up my limited number of times?

Your best bet would probably be to buy a cheap DVD region 1 drive in the U.S. and install it in the pc along with the region 2 locked drive in the pc. This way you can use one drive for region 2 and the other for region 1 discs. You only have 5 changes total if you forget and accept changes each time on the new drive. You will then have to buy still another drive.
