With computer and laptop dvd drives you usually only get 5 chances to change the region. I don't know why they do this. You'll need to install dvd decoder onto your laptop. There are a few free ones available like this one:

Is there a region unlock code for technika dvd player model TKHVD214


TKHVD214 unlock Region
I recently bought one of these DVD players from Tesco and it worked well with most of my (meagre) DVD collection.
However, it refused to play one particular DVD reporting 'WRONG REGION'.
This was so annoying and frustrating it made me briefly consider relocating to the USA <joke>, however as that was impractical I took it as a challenge to suss this badboy out.
The interwebs were no help on this one so I spent some time reverse engineering the player's firmware.
Here's the skinny:
Switch player on.
Open tray (with no disc).
On remote Press Setup.
Then press 1 3 8 9
A new menu screen will appear with some interesting data, including the currently set Region code.
Set the Region to 0.
Press 'OK' on the remote control.
Turn the player off and then back on again, using the remote control.
Sorted - thank me later!

You will need to get a second dvd player locally to play those movies. Some DVD players allow you to change region codes but limit you to 5 changes, it locks in on the 5th.

Convert US DVD in Region 1 to play in UK Region 2


Hello,
Please go to codemasters.com , type in the details of your dvd player, there will be several region code hacks ,follow the instructions and this should work for you, basically you are needing to make your dvd player a multiregion player. all dvd players are multi region at time of manufacture, but they are code set for the county that they are shipped to, hopefully this should help. you can also go on to google type in Hack for whaterver your dvd player is and you will get a region code there.

Need to unlock the region code so that I can play Australian DVD's on UK machine


Go to videohelp.com and search on the model number - the sequence of remote control keys to press to change the region code is there. It worked well for me, so I could play US DVDs on my UK region machine.
