You cannot change the region, you only have 5 changes and then it sticks, but you can run this programme to play all region discs

My dvd is locked after changing zone 4 times .. i haven't intentionally changed any zones other than the initial time .. but it has re-set itself all the other times. Any ideas?


A DVD player region code can only be altered 4 times and it locks permanently to the 4th region code.
To make your DVD player region free, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Dvd regions locked set on number 3 but unable to change to # 1.Have Matshita dvd-ram uj880es player on my lapttop


If the region on your DVD is locked then the EPROM has been flashed after 5 changes. The only way around this is to install a multi-region software.

The best one available is DVD Region Free. You can purchase these online at sites such as:

www.dvdidle.com
www.slysoft.com

Hope that helps

How can i reset my cd/dvd region in my acer aspire 4715z series, i plan to do this my cd/dvd rom is choosing a disc to play, i think some change the cd/dvd rom without my knowledge and I'm not able to fix...


To change the region code on your DVD player go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and expand the DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on your DVD drive and click on Properties then click on DVD Region tab. You will see the number of changes remaining (you can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks on the last region change and no further change is available). You will see the Current Region and You can change the region in the New Region box.
If you have run out of changes then you have a problem, this can be fixed. The hardest way is to upgrade the firmware on the DVD drive to a region free firmware BUT if you install the wrong firmware or stuff up the upgrade your DVD drive will be a piece of junk.
The best way is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. There may be some free software on the Internet but I use DVD Region Free + CSS Free from DVD Idle, it not expensive and I have no problem viewing DVDs from any region.
Use this link to DVD Idle WEB site.

You can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks onto that region. There are firmware upgrades for various model DVDs on the Internet that makes the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake in upgrading the firmware or installing the wrong firmware version then the DVD drive is turned into a piece of junk.
The best way to solve your problem is to install software that defeats the region code so you can play DVDs from any region.
I use a region free program fronm DVD Idle, it is not very expensive and there are other similar programs on the Internet. Use Google to search for them.
Have a look at www.dvdidle.com

My matshita dvd player is locked on region 1 , i need region australia


Have you tried right clicking on the drive and click on properties:then hardware:then select the DVD and then properties again and finally DVD region, NB DVD drive can only be changed 4/5 times then it is permanent.

If this is the case then:
for either a laptop or desktop I would buy myself a nice external DVD burner (get all bells and whistles) well as much as you can afford

Unlocking the region code for dvd player


Hi,

as with any pc related dvd drive. they,re usually subject to between 3-5 user changes. if they,ve been used up, then theres no chance to reset or change them, but to purchase a new drive.
There are alternatives, such as locating a program like DVD Region and CSS free, which will allow your drive to play any region Disk.

Acer 5510 notebook Matshita UJ-845D DVD/CD-R Writer Problem


Unfortunately there are no updates available for the UJ-8xx series (except for Sony - which won't work on other machines) as it just uses an old generic Windows optical device driver.

Your problems lie elsewhere.

These units have very very very strong region restriction - no reported patches or fixes that I can find...

So they come with an original region (the local one for where you bought the laptop) set by the manufacturer. You only have 5 possible region changes before it locks on to the final region permanently*.

There is very little info on the Matsushita (now Panasonic) website - but it appears that when you insert a different region disk into the drive it will automatically change the region restriction setting to that new region (and there goes one of your 5 allowed changes??).

If this is correct then you may start with for example a region 2 restriction (whatever the local region is for your computer) and record various DVDs in region 2 format. Then one day you try (deliberately or accidentally) a region 4 disk. Your drive reads it and changes the default to ... region 4 (using one allowed change)... next you put in one of your old disks - and the drive restriction default is changed back to region 2 (using another of your 5 changes) - until you've used up the 5 changes - when it's locked.

Because it's an odd number, chances are you'll end up with a permanent non-local region restriction...

* and Panasonic/Matsushita will only change it for a cost apparently...

so not very good news...

To help you, try this handy little free tool. It will tell you whether your drive is restricted, which region it's currently set to; and how many changes of the 5 you've already used:

now if I could just find out how to change the current region...
