XP is all good. I love it. It is the only Windows to date that I would make love to.
But I would like to make the media player play all zones of DVD's.
Can this be done?

Isnt the zone/region playing only reliant on the dvd driv;e region setting and not the software player ?

The software itself definately cannot bypass the region protection, check your dvdrom's abilities...

You must have a RPC1 (region protection code) DVD-ROM.
RCP1 - All regions
RCP2 - Region coded
Seeing that all new DVD-ROMS must have a RPC2 by law now the likely hood of you having a RPC1 DVD-ROM is unlikely. The region coding information is all controlled by the firmware and ther are web sites dedicated to supplying firmware hacks to make your RPC2 encoded DVD-ROM a RPC1 encoded DVD-ROM.
Once you have flashed the firmware on your DVD-ROM to make it RPC1 compliant you then use a region free program that tricks windows into think that the region has been set. The best program I have found for this is DVD Genie and it is free.
In WinXP to use a DVD the OS itself must be set to a region but by using DVD Genie you can get around this. Even if you stuff it up the is a reg entry that you can delete which will rest the WinXP region.
Go to this web page for more info and DVD Geniehttp://www.inmatrix.com
and this site for firmware hacks http://www.firmware.fr.st/
This should get you started anyway
