    Hi Guys

    So i've bought myself the box set of 'Battlestar Galactica' remake Blu Ray from UK to play on my Aussie (Region 4) Samsung rom. Seller said the box set is 'region free 0' as it does on the packaging but wont play on my PC. I tried changing my rom to region 2 UK (i have 4 changes left) but keep getting an error message.... Unable to update region setting blah blah ... (im region 4)

    I've also downloaded some region killer software (Any DVD, DVD Region+CSS free) but they've done nothing as my rom doesn't even show there's any Blu Ray disc in it ...!?!?

    I'm using PowerDVD 17 30 trial software.

    So, any ideas?!

    Looks like DVDFab Passkey 9 trial worked....all good! :D

    ps. In this day and age why are 'they' still using Regions its 2017....? I could have very easily downloaded this from 'you know where' but i chose to buy the box set and support 'them'.... but it was a massive **** around just to get it working....

    Blu ray playback on pc is so annoying to get working. I now only use my PS3 for br movies.
