    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 :-)

How to unlock region code 6 from my Matshita BD-LMT UJU-220s


Hi!

There's no RPC-1 (Region-free) firmware for your drive...
You can use AnyDVD to unlock all regions! To get more information about it and download it - look here!

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards,

How to unlock laptop dvd player region code


Open Device Manager.
Expand the CD/DVD section.
Double-click the DVD device.
One of the 'tabs' will allow you to set the region-code -- you can change it up to 5 times, and then it will 'lock' after the 5th change.

You need to go to device manager and pull up the properties for the DVD drive and choose the "Region" that you are in. After that the drive should work.

Acer 5510 notebook Matshita UJ-845D DVD/CD-R Writer Problem


Unfortunately there are no updates available for the UJ-8xx series (except for Sony - which won't work on other machines) as it just uses an old generic Windows optical device driver.

Your problems lie elsewhere.

These units have very very very strong region restriction - no reported patches or fixes that I can find...

So they come with an original region (the local one for where you bought the laptop) set by the manufacturer. You only have 5 possible region changes before it locks on to the final region permanently*.

There is very little info on the Matsushita (now Panasonic) website - but it appears that when you insert a different region disk into the drive it will automatically change the region restriction setting to that new region (and there goes one of your 5 allowed changes??).

If this is correct then you may start with for example a region 2 restriction (whatever the local region is for your computer) and record various DVDs in region 2 format. Then one day you try (deliberately or accidentally) a region 4 disk. Your drive reads it and changes the default to ... region 4 (using one allowed change)... next you put in one of your old disks - and the drive restriction default is changed back to region 2 (using another of your 5 changes) - until you've used up the 5 changes - when it's locked.

Because it's an odd number, chances are you'll end up with a permanent non-local region restriction...

* and Panasonic/Matsushita will only change it for a cost apparently...

so not very good news...

To help you, try this handy little free tool. It will tell you whether your drive is restricted, which region it's currently set to; and how many changes of the 5 you've already used:
http://hijacker.rpc1.org/discinfo/#Download

now if I could just find out how to change the current region...
