DVD Player region coding changes

Is there any way of bypassing the changes function for the dvd player in the HP Pavillion laptops to be able to play multi region dvd's? I have region 4, 2 and 1 dvd's and cannot keep changing regions.

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.

I need to change the region code from the US to the UK for my HP Pavillion dv2000 laptop. The hardware under properties says its a slimtype DVD ADS8A1H ATA device? I have already gone past the 5 allowed...


Hello,

If you have used the 5 allowed changes, then your device is locked at the last one. You may be able to unlock it so it works region free. There are tools on the internet that allow you to do this.

The free way is to just install videoLAN (VLC). If yo use videolan as your video player, it should play any dvd without needing to modify firmware or "hack".

If you want to try to modify your locked DVD region codes, a good place is www.videohelp.com. Here is the direct link to the regon page:

I have used my up all my regions on my HP Pavillion laptop it has a pioneer dvd player in it. How do I get it to unlock and play all DVDs forever?


You can use VLC Media Player, a free program that can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org .

This program ignores the region codes of your DVDs and can play any disc.

I hope that you find this information helpful.

Go to control panel /system / hardware tab , then click on device manager then find your dvd/cd drive right click on that and select properties. there should be several tabs the one you want will be named dvd region or something like that.

some drives will only let you change the region a couple of times

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
