    I purchased an HP laptop in the US recently and it came with HP Quickplay installed. I tried playing a DVD that I acquired from Europe today and I received the attached message. Will I have to change teh regional code again when I put a DVD acquired from the US? What will happen if I change the region code more than 4 times? Does it just stay stuck on the region that I last had configured, thus preventing me from accessing software or CDs acquired from other regions?

    The setting sticks until you have to change it again, which will be each time you want to play* a DVD set for a different region than the one your player is currently set to. When you have changed the region 5 times, you won't be able to change it any more, in other words, you're stuck with the then current setting.
    There are many region-free DVDs by the way. And although it beyond the scope of Woody's Lounge to tell you how to get around the region limit, you might search Google...

    * This is only for movie DVDs as far as I know, not for DVDs containing software.
