Over time, PowerDVD region changing code has gone through several changes. In the original 1.22 version the region
code could only be reset. For this version there is a special "Reset" button. Newer versions must specify the region
For versions 1.22 or older use the "Reset v1.22 region counter" button. For version 1.3 or newer simply select
the desired region and hit the Apply button. In certain versions you may need to enable the "Alternate Region Setting"
check box (although this should be extremely rare).
Region Changing will not work on RPC2 Drives (DVD Drives that are locked in hardware to a specific region).

Firmware Information Page.

Otherwise it is disabled.
