    10.4.10, and MBP 2.33 GHz, 2 GIG RAM etc...
    Basically, I just want to change the region (legally as I have 3 changes left) and as far as I know, DVD Player is how you do it..

    I'm not sure about the compatability of the DVD player on Apple's website and your version of the Mac OS ... IMHO you need to reinstall DVD Player from your Macs install discs:

    Using Restore discs with computers that ship with Mac OS X 10.3.7 or later


    Another way to achieve the same end result is using a 3rd Party App which can extract the software from the pkg files on the install disc ...

    Pacifist

    About Pacifist.

    So give it a whirl and report back ...

    Can I ask if you don't need DVD Player as you use VLC ... why do you want to change the Region Code?

    Becasue I went to America, and bought a DVD there and changed the Region. Now I'm back at Uni I want to watch films and stuff in Region 2 (Europe). I mean, if there is a way to change the Region without DVD Player that would be great.

    Follow the instructions at this link to use Pacifist to extract DVD Player:

    Using Pacifist

    You also need to drag the previous DVD Player installation to the Trash.

    Also, you'll need to check the Frameworks version that DVD Player needs to run properly. To do this in DVD Player, click "About DVD Player". It will show both the app and framework versions. On an intel Imac C2D, running 10.4.10, I'm showing 4.6.5 for the first and 4.7.0 for the second.

    Cool thanks.
    I mean, when playing the DVDs in VLC it doesn;t fully work- not all play, then without sound etc.
    Thanks again.
