Can you supply the unlock code for my Toshiba Laptop DVD/CD Writer TSST Corp DCDVDW TS-L633F


Go to Device Manager. Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista or 7:

Right click on Computer or My Computer. Click on Properties.

In Vista/7, click on Device Manager on the left side. In XP, if I remember correctly, you click on the Hardware tab and you will see Device Manager as a button.

Under DVD/CD-ROM drives, find your optical drive. Right click on it and click Properties.

Go to the DVD Region Tab. Find your region, select, then click OK. Keep in mind that the number of times you can do this is LIMITED.

Unlock code for dvd drive for a Compaq Presario V2000


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

Unlock dvd zones


The region code can only be changed 4 times and it locks on the 4th change.
There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.
The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

There are firnware updates to change DVDs to region free, if you are not carefull you can screw up your DVD drive.
Suggest you install a program to allow you to play any DVDs regardless of which region the DVDs were created for.
Go to www.dvdidle.com for their Region-Free program

Hi i want to unlock my laptop to any region, can you help


PC DVD drives can have the region code changed 5 times only.
Whatever region you set it to on the last available change will be the units permanent region from then on!!!

Any hardware modification to the unit to 'unlock' it is a violation of many countries laws and absolutely unlawful in the U.S..

The region codes are there to protect the copyrights of the media producers and ensure the units proper operation with inserted media.

Region code


I assume you are referring to the DVD drive region code in your Toshiba laptop.

1. Determine the exact make and model of the drive.

2. Check the mfr's. website for reset instructions.

3. Google - DVD REGION UNLOCK CODE. You will find lots of help there.

Good luck
