Re: need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region...
You can only change the region code up to 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 any region DVDs. Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

Sometimes, the specific brand and manufacturer of the media is an issue, not the DVD+R or DVD-R style.
A lot of the time, a firmware update to the DVD drive allows the DVD writer to work with a broader range of blank media.
Since this model is so old, Packard Bell does not offer firmware updates. If you can identify the manufacturer and model of the DVD drive in the laptop, you may be able to locate a third party firmware installer at places like www.rpc1.org.
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.
