DVD error code

By nhiep_nguyen ·
Hello,

I try to play a DVD disk on my computer and got the DVD error code 8901000F.

Circumtances when the error code appears :

Computer :
Mother board ASSUS P4S8X (bought in the US)
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz.
512 M DDR Ram

OS :
Win XP Pro US version.

Material :
One Pioneer 106S DVD drive bought in Europe (region 2) installed as master on the secondary IDE connector.
One Sony DRU-500A DVD burner bought in the US (region 1) installed as slave on the same IDE as the Pioneer.DVD Player :
PowerDVD4

Problem :
When I try to play a region 1 DVD with PowerDVD4 (bundled with the Sony drive) on the Sony drive I got the DVD error code 8901000F.
Region 2 DVDs will play fine on both drives althought the SONY is supposed tobe a RPC2 region 1 drive.

Could you help me please?

Thank you

head out to drivers.com or any place that you prefer to get new drivers for the dvd player. I went to cnets drivers.com they have the best set of drivers. also see what program it is using to run the dvd player. i had to set mine to interactive to get it to work correctly. i am xp pro also.

I cannot find any driver that makes it read region 1 DVD; I've recently been told that the DVD drive is not specifically region oriented when shipped from the manufacturer but got the region from the first DVD that is inserted.Is this correct?
