C A U T I O N
Do not operate your media player drive unless your
LifeBook notebook is sitting on a flat surface. Using a
drive when the system is not level may damage the
drive or prevent proper operation.
Prolonged use of the media player drive, such as
watching a DVD movie, will substantially reduce
your battery life if no other power source is attached.
P O I N T
You should periodically check the Fujitsu web site at
www.fujitsupc.com for current updated drivers.
All LifeBook DVD players are set to play DVD titles
with region code number 1 which is specified for the
North American market. The region number is a
regional restriction code defined by the DVD Forum
acting on Hollywood requirements. Different region
codes are recorded on video DVD titles for publica-
tion in different areas of the world. If the regional
code of the DVD player does not match the regional
codes on the titles, then playback is impossible.
You can change the region code on the DVD player
using the Properties menu of the DVD software.
Note, however, that you can only change the region
code up to four times. After the fourth change, the
last region code entered becomes permanent, and
cannot be changed.
