You have probably used up all your region changes. These are limited for copyright reasons.
Download Anydvd from Slysoft.com
This will run your dvds as "region free"

I need to unlock a Toshiba DVD player/VCR Combo SDV395 to view DVDs' purchased in Francs


You can change the Region Code of you DVD player but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, then the DVD player will be stuck to a certain region.
Search in the Options menu and change the region code to one printed on the french dvd case. To watch DVDs from your region again you have to change the region once more. Watch for changes left.

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

You can change the region code for your DVD player but not more than 4 times.
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

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.

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.
