    I am considering buying some VCD's in European PAL format from someone
    in the UK-any clue as to whether or under what conditions I may be able
    to use these? I have a standard CD-ROM drive and DVD player and WinDVD...thanks.

    Where are you located ? And are your Drives Region Code Protected ?

    I'm in UK and the DVD drives on both my PCs are set to Region 2 Europe.

    Sorry...I am in the USA and I am referring to a PC DVD drive-as to
    whether my drives are Region Code Protected-no clue.
