    Can I play NTSC & PAL DVD's on my UK spec Dell system? My DVD player software is Intervideo WinDVD. I've found lots of info about what NTSC & PAL are but can't find an answer to my simple question.

    From what I can remember, NTSC is American, whilst PAL is Europe. These are two different regions. This is a bit from here about regions:

    As you may have bought yours from the UK, it may only be PAL, though an actual DVD player may be able to accept all regions.
