Q: Why there is region code protection?
A: The major movie producers in the world have set the standard to divide the world into 6 regions and require the DVD released within in these 6 regions to be set with region code to protect their interest. Hence, theaters and families in each region will not be able to obtain cheaper discs from those cheaper regions and has to purchase from the normal channels so as to safeguard their interest.SuperDVD allows for the user to set a different region code for 5 times. After setting of 5 times, the player will only watch the DVD set for the region or discs locked for all regions.

Q: How many types of region code protection in DVD-ROM hardware itself?
A: The region code protection in DVD-ROM hardware may be classed into 2 types: A. Phase I (with no region code protection): The hardware itself will not protect the region and the region code is protected by the software. In the case of SuperDVD, you may confirm if you have change the region code for 5 times. If yes, SuperDVD will use the last set region code as the final setting and lock the region code.B. Phase II (with region code protection): Use the set region code protect on the hardware as the one for watching movies. As this is the protection by the hardware itself, you should consult DVD-RMO manufacturer for detail information. SuperDVD will base on the region code set in the DVD-ROM.

Q: How many times is allowed for me to change the region code after setup the SuperDVD for the first time?
A: The region code protection is to comply with the major 8 movie producers in the world. You will have 5 opportunities to change the region code (depend on the DVD ROM) and the region code will be locked after the 5th setting. From then on, you could only play DVD movies set for the region or locked for all regions.

Q: My computer has already MPEG1or MPEG2 hardware decoding and compression card. Can I still use SuperDVD?
A: SuperDVD is a play program for decoding MPEG1 and MPEG2 using pure software method.

Q: I encounter a error "This DVD-Video content is protected by Macrovision. The system does not satisfy Macrovision requirement.Can't continue playing this disc", why ?
A: Macrovision errors usually indicate a failure to authenticate the Macrovision-protected video content on a DVD disc. Macrovision is the analog copy protection applied to most DVD's, in order to prevent them from being copied to video tape. Your system, particularly your video card and drivers, must be configured properly or Macrovision errors can result. There can be several possible causes of this problem:
Improperly Configured Video Drivers: Make sure you install video drivers according to the manufacturer specifications. Detailed instructions for properly installing or upgrading video drivers are usually included in a readme file that accompanies the driver files.
Incompatible Software or Drivers: Please make sure that your DVD decoder is fully compatible with your current system configuration. This includes video card, version of Windows, version of DirectX, etc. Be sure to visit the decoder's website for information about system requirements if you are not completely sure of compatibility. If your decoder is not fully compatible, then an upgrade for it may be available that will make it compatible.
TV Out Feature May Be Activated: On most notebook PC's, as well as some desktop computers, the display adapter has a TV Out feature. If you are viewing DVD video on a computer, you should make sure that only the display that is currently in use is active. For instance, if you have a laptop and you do not have an external monitor or TV connected to it, make absolutely sure that this feature is not currently activated. If it is, then the video hardware will be trying to send a signal to both places, and an error is likely to occur.
No Support For Macrovision In Video Drivers: This is becoming a rare issue, but it can still happen. Older video cards (mainly, models released before 1997) probably will not support Macrovision. In addition, some video card makers can sometimes release driver updates even for current models that are incorrectly configured for Macrovision support. In these cases, the solution would be to either replace the video card with a newer model, or install a set of drivers that include Macrovision support in them; depending on what the situation may be.
Insufficient Video Resources: Sometimes a lack of hardware resources can trigger a Macrovision error. You may want to change your display to 800x600 pixels and High Color (16-Bit), and see if this makes any difference. Also, if you have recently replaced your monitor or have your system connected to a different monitor than it usually uses, make sure that Windows is not still configured to use the previous monitor model. This too can trigger a Macrovision error.
