DVD Player Region

I have a HP Pavilion Laptop and because I watch DVDs from all over the world, I have been changing the Region. Now I get a message that I can not make any more changes to region. How can I bypass that or reset my DVD player or change it so it will play any DVD despite the region? The unit is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20L ATA

    And how can I do that?

  • quirorick Oct 25, 2008

    HP support says my DVD player is locked with the last regional code changed. How can I "clear regional settings in windows registry" as suggested?

  • quirorick Oct 25, 2008

    Still without a solution.

  • quirorick Oct 25, 2008

    Thanks, Ginko! Will try that!

Hi, your only real option is to use software called DVD Region Killer referenced earlier by Ginko.

And, there is a reasonable way to get DVD movies back, now that you know the limitations built in to these things, buy another DVD combo drive for your PC, an investment of about $30.

What most of us do is put a DVD in our drives and then use legal software to strip out the region codes and put a copy on our hard drives in AVI format or MP4. All this is legal as you purchase your DVD and court cases have established you have the right "to the pursuit of happiness" which means in this case, making a copy so the kiddies don't destroy it, place it on your PC so you can stream it out to TVs and Flat Panels, etc. etc.

Regards and good luck,
Worldvet

Remove all the external wiring connections from the dvd and then remove all the installed drivers for that particular dvd player which you r using.and then connect the dvd again and then reload its drivers again.so it will be detected as new again and you can use it further.

thanks.

This region code is in the DVD drive and can not be changed after 5 tries, possibly a firmware might reset the counter but as far as I know for sure, it can't be changed after 5 times. Lets see if Im right or not.

    Ginko is clearly outside of hes field of expertice here. The changes cant be undone even by reinstalling windows or placing the drive in another computer.

"wrong region" on dvd player


According to the Wikipedia, "DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The DVD Copy Control Association in California, USA, requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the Regional Playback Control (RPC) system - according to the Australian government's anti-monopoly watchdog, the ACCC. It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations. DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

A brand new DVD player allows you to play DVDs from different regions only five times, locking to the last region watched after these five times. So, you might have used your five region-change permissions and your DVD player is now locked to a different one from that of the DVD you want to watch (even thou you might have watched normally before).

There are some softwares like "DVD Region+CSS Free" from dvdidle.com or "CloneDVD 2" from Slysoft.com that allow you to back up your DVDs without the annoying region code. There are also sites like www.rpc1.org and www.dvdexploder.com that provide firmware or remote control codes to unlock the region of your DVD player.

Hope this information helps you understand why your DVD player is behaving like that and how to bypass that pitfall.

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.

Message "wrong Region" appears in my Sony DVD -


DVD region is an anti-piracy method to block DVDs from other countrys to be played on a region where that DVD isn't available for selling. You still can watch that DVD by changing the DVD Player region code from options but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, after changes reach 0 you cannot change DVD region code anymore and your DVD player will be stucked to a certain region that you selected.

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

DVD Player region coding changes


You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

Panasonic SA-PT750 - changing Region restriction


The system region control is a function of the software on the DVD player. I don't believe there is a way to change the region settings on most DVD players. You can however convert your DVDs with software available online. One program is called "DVD Region & Css Free" and is available for a small price. That is perhaps one way you could approach your problem. Otherwise look for a player that will play discs from other regions.
