    The region has been chnaged 5 times. That is why it is now locked. I have moved countries and cannot play any local DVDs and this seems wrong. How can I unlock the drive?

    But that doesn't make it region free. You've just used the first of 5 possibilities to change region.

I had may original ThnikPad T61 DVD-drive replaced by Matshita UJ-852 and it didn't work. When I checked the DVD region it stated "Not selected". So I selected "Region 1" and it stated to work properly. So it seems that the drive came without any region selected and to unlock it I needed to select the region. Seems too simple, but works :-)

My matshita dvd player is locked on region 1 , i need region australia


Have you tried right clicking on the drive and click on properties:then hardware:then select the DVD and then properties again and finally DVD region, NB DVD drive can only be changed 4/5 times then it is permanent.

If this is the case then:
for either a laptop or desktop I would buy myself a nice external DVD burner (get all bells and whistles) well as much as you can afford

My matshita uj-860s disc drive has stopped working


In my case, MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S did not want to write CD-R,-RW Verbatim using software NERO 8, but is easy to write their own software windows XP. 
in the Log file was as follows: 

Could not perform start of Disc-at-once 

Sense Key: 0x05 (KEY_ILLEGAL_REQUEST) 

Power calibration error 

whether 

Invalid field in parameter 
E: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S 

ACTION! :) 
Change in method of recording NERO 8 Burning mode: DAO (Disc-at-once) at Burning mode: TAO (Track-At-Once) all have established! 
Simply drive MATSHITA was UNSUPPORTED software producers to write disks. 
Updating the software to burn CDs, as is windows XP supports the recording and includes drivers for the drive! :) 

Good luck!
