    they should play on the computer, but you may have to have a program like AnyDVD running in the background to nullify the regional coding

    So i should be able to Change the Region on the dvd, even though they are Boxed set's.

    I want to know if i should cancel the order or just get them. I really want them. Boxed set's of Top Gear :D

    you will have to copy them to your computer, then re-burn them onto Blank DVD's.

    Or find a region free DVD player.

    I think you can set most dvd players today to play both regions. Google your model # and region free and you will prob find out how to do it!!
