1 Answer

Need to change region code.

I have recently moved from the states to Finland and I have a LITEON DVD ROM that is set for region 1. I need to change the region code to 0 so that I can play all the DVD types that are available here in Europe.

My compaq laptop says i cant change the region

You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.

My pc dvd drive won't let me change region back

No its not a bug most DVD-ROM computer drives allow you 4 or 5 region changes first check your region code and number at DVD Region Info it will tell you region code Australia is 4 UK is 2 sand so one plus you region changes

I however do suggest removing your region code from your DVD-ROM using a region free firmwar or on your PC you can use it is however a bit pricey the region 0 firmware hack would be better.

Must sony DDU1615 DVD-ROM be set to region 1 in order to read most DVD Movie on PC. At present it is not set to any region but is hit & miss as to what it will recognize and play. I do not want to...

An easy way to make your computer permanently region free is to install "DVD Region + CSS Free":
Yep, or Any DVD ( from Slysoft, which I've bought. Full price is $40, but it's worth it if you have several DVDs from regions outside of your DVD-ROM. Or you can use VLC (, a freeware media player that will play all DVDs, regardless of region coding. And yes, this is legal. (But it can be buggy)
