    Can anyone here tell me anything about playing a french dvd movie on a DVD-rom here in the USA? I think I'm having a "zone" problem, some sort of marketing gimmic or something that won't let foriegn films be played on American dvd players. Anyone have advice?

    Yeah, your DVD-ROM drive is probably locked to certain region and same applies to your DVD software player. Software player is easy to cirumvent, just download DVD Genie from our software area. But for your drive, you need to patch it to be region free again -- region free drives are called RPC-1 and region-locked drives are called RPC-2. You can find out information and hopefully a patch for your drive from this address:
