Installing WinDVD and viewing a DVD movie

To install WinDVD, go to the Softwaresection of the Software and User’s Guide CD.

After you install the DVD drive and WinDVD, you can view a DVD movie. But first you need to set the DVD region code for your DVD content.

DVD region codes

DVD region codes help protect the contents of a DVD. The world is divided into six regions and specific content can be viewed only in the appropriate region. For example, content for Region 1 can be viewed only in the U.S. and Canada.

WinDVD is also region–specific.

Chapter 2. Using the ThinkPad DVD-ROM Ultrabay Slim Drive 2-3

You can verify the region code of the content by looking at the region code symbol on the back of the content packaging.

Region code

Region

 

 

1

U.S., Canada

 

 

2

Europe, Middle East, South Africa, Japan

 

 

3

Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Korea

 

 

4

Latin America, Australia, New Zealand

 

 

5

Former Soviet Union, North Africa, India

 

 

6

People’s Republic of China

 

 

Start WinDVD by inserting the DVD into the drive. The region code is automatically set and you can view the movie. This is the initial setting.

After the region code has been set, if you insert a DVD with a different region code, you are prompted to change the region code. You can change the region code from your initial setting up to four times.

After the region code has been changed from its initial setting four times, it is fixed and can no longer be changed. Thereafter, you can play DVD content only from that region.

To display the region code status, click the WinDVD Properties button on the WinDVD user interface. The General tab contains this information.

Starting WinDVD

To start WinDVD, complete the following procedure:

1.Click Start.

2.Click Programs.

3.Click InterVideo WinDVD.

4.Click InterVideo WinDVD to open the DVD movie player window.

For more information on how to play the DVD movie player, refer to the WinDVD help information on the Software and User’s Guide CD. If you want to watch a DVD movie on your TV, refer to the online information provided with your computer.

Notes:

1.Your computer has been configured to provide the highest quality audio and video playback obtainable with the available system resources. You can alter the default settings by changing the video resolution setting within the Control Panel. Some systems do not have enough resources to provide full-quality audio and video playback at all resolution settings. If you experience poor playback performance, adjust the resolution to a lower setting.

2.Audio or video streams are decoded by software. The audio and video subsystems need to be fully functional and enabled.

Appendix B. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty -

Z125-4753-07 - 11/2002

Part 1 - General Terms

This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 - Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale. The term Machinemeans an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term Machinedoes not include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed subsequently or otherwise.

Nothing in this Statement of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or limited by contract.

What this Warranty Covers

IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications (Specifications) which are available on request. The warranty period for the Machine starts on the original Date of Installation and is specified in Part 3 - Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or sales receipt is the Date of Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise. Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the removal of parts and their return to IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the removed part. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the country or region in which you purchased the Machine.

THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

What this Warranty Does not Cover

This warranty does not cover the following:

vany software programs, whether pre-loaded or shipped with the Machine, or installed subsequently;

vfailure resulting from misuse (including but not limited to use of any Machine capacity or capability, other than that authorized by IBM in writing), accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, or improper maintenance by you;

vfailure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible; and

© Copyright IBM Corp. 2003

B-1

v any non-IBM products, including those that IBM may procure and provide with or integrate into an IBM Machine at your request.

The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the Machine or its parts.

IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.

Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such as assistance via telephone with how-to questions and those regarding Machine set-up and installation, is provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.

How to Obtain Warranty Service

If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, contact IBM or your reseller to obtain warranty service. If you do not register the Machine with IBM, you may be required to present proof of purchase as evidence of your entitlement to warranty service.

What IBM Will Do to Correct Problems

When you call for service, you must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. A technician will attempt to make an initial diagnosis of your problem and help you resolve it over the telephone.

The type of warranty service applicable to your Machine is specified in Part 3 - Warranty Information.

You are responsible for downloading and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called BIOS), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM Machine ) and other software updates from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides.

If your problem can be resolved with a Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) (e.g., keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, hard disk drive and other easily replaceable parts), IBM will ship these parts to you for replacement by you.

If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, through your application of Machine Code or software updates, or with a CRU, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide warranty service, will either, at its discretion, 1) repair it to make it function as warranted, or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally equivalent. If IBM is unable to do either, you may return the Machine to your place of purchase and your money will be refunded.

IBM or your reseller will also manage and install selected engineering changes that apply to the Machine.

Exchange of a Machine or Part

When the warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least

B-2 ThinkPad DVD-ROM Ultrabay Slim Drive: User’s Guide

functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item.

Your Additional Responsibilities

Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.

You also agree to:

1.ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent its exchange;

2.obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a Machine that you do not own; and

3.where applicable, before service is provided:

a.follow the service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;

b.backup or secure all programs, data, and funds contained in the Machine;

c.IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your facilities to permit IBM to fulfill its obligations; and

d.inform IBM or your reseller of changes in the Machine’s location.

4.(a) ensure all information about identified or identifiable individuals (Personal Data) is deleted from the Machine (to the extent technically possible), (b) allow IBM, your reseller or an IBM supplier to process on your behalf any remaining Personal Data as IBM or your reseller considers necessary to fulfill its obligations under this Statement of Limited Warranty (which may include shipping the Machine for such processing to other IBM service locations around the world), and (c) ensure that such processing complies with any laws applicable to such Personal Data.

Limitation of Liability

IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine only while it is 1) in IBM’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the transportation charges.

Neither IBM nor your reseller are responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its return.

Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM’s part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or tort claim), except for any liability that cannot be waived or limited by applicable laws, IBM is liable for no more than

1.damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and tangible personal property; and

2.the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the charges (if recurring, 12 months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is subject of the claim. For purposes of this item, the term Machineincludes Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code (LIC).

Appendix B. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty - Z125-4753-07 - 11/2002 B-3

This limit also applies to IBM’s suppliers and your reseller. It is the maximum for which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively responsible.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR RESELLERS LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING EVEN IF INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY: 1) THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, DATA; 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; OR 4) LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS REVENUE, GOODWILL OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Governing Law

Both you and IBM consent to the application of the laws of the country in which you acquired the Machine to govern, interpret, and enforce all of your and IBM’s rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in any manner to, the subject matter of this Statement of Limited Warranty, without regard to conflict of law principles.

THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE OR JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.
