No DVD region change dialog... DVD not mounting

    I had until now only used my macbook with "local" DVD from Region 2. I have a few weeks ago watched one single DVD from region 1, and had therefore to accept the region change in the pop-up dialog. I did accept knowing I would reverse to region 2 after.

    I have not read an DVD until today, hen I am trying to load again a region 2 DVD.

    Problem: DVd player or Handbrake do not see the DVD, (but VLC can), and I see no dialog offering me to change the region code.

    1) where can I see what is my current setting?
    2) how can I get DVD player Mac OS X to present that dialog, so that I can reverse to region 2?

    Thanks for any help,

    Thanks. In the meantime, two reboots have brought back the dialog when inserting another region's DVD.

    Don't think I will unlock it for the moment. This other region was an exception.
