Using the DVD-ROM or multi-function drive

Optical storage has become the preferred medium for software, music, and video. Digital versatile discs (DVDs) provide a significant increase in data storage and support features that are not available on any other video platform.

These features include wide-screen movies, multiple language tracks, digital surround sound, multiple camera angles, and interactive menus.

For these reasons, your computer may come with a DVD-

ROM drive or multi-function drive.

If a DVD-ROM drive or multi-function drive is not currently installed in the Slim SelectBay, follow the instructions in

“Using Slim SelectBay® modules” on page 77 .

TECHNICAL NOTE: Your DVD-ROM or multi-function drive is set to play region 1 (North America) DVD-ROMs. If you play a

DVD disc from another region, the drive will automatically change to play in the format of the other region. The drive will allow you to change regions four times. On the fourth change, the region will be “locked in.” That is, the drive will only play

DVDs from that last region. Note that changing from region 1 to region 2 and back to region 1 is counted as two changes.
