Are you having a problem with DVD region encoding? Which DVDs are/are not playing? Which player software are you using? Some DVD-ROM drives have hard-wired region coding, but sometimes their firmware can be flashed to correct or ignore this. Which drive model do you have?

Registry tweaks usually depend on the software -- and hardware -- involved. There are no hard-and-fast tweaks that I know of, but I don't know everything.
