My Stupid LaCie DVD doesn't know it's in the United States

Just got this message after burning my first DVD and then mounting it:
Since this is the first use of a DVD disc, the drive region code must be initialized before playing.

New drive setting: [ ]
TechTV comes to the rescue with this list:
Following is a list of region codes and their corresponding geography:

1. Canada, United States, US Territories
2. Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East (including Egypt)
3. Southeast Asia, East Asia (including Hong Kong)
4. Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, Caribbean
5. Russian Federation, India, Pakistan, Africa (except Egypt), North Korea, Mongolia
6. China
7. Reserved
8. Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, and so on)
Region 1, Region 1, Region 1!
