How do I reset regions after they have been locked out


Are you talking about DVD regions? A DVD region can be changed only about 7 times and then the last region is permanent. Assuming you have not exhausted your chances, you can change the region to where you want.

FOllow the link to change regions in XP

How do i change dvd region on laptop back to uk from us?


From Control Panel, and System, open Device Manager.

Expand the branch of the "tree" for the DVD/CD branch.

Double-click the DVD device, to open its "properties".
Change the region -- note that you can "change region" only 5 times, before the device permanently "locks" into a region.

My dvd is blocked by zoning. It doesn't play dvd any longer. It alowes to change zoning/ region only 5 times and then it lockes. What do I do?


You need to reflash the firmware in the DVD, this will reset the counter. There could also be cracked versions of the DVD firmware which will reset the counter every time you power off or even make it region free. This will invalidate your warrenty.

To find out more, search for the make of the drive followed by firmware flash region free

Changing the DVD Region code


Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other

Dvd region


if you reinstall windows it will reset firmware...better option download and install any dvd (software "any dvd")this will allow any region to be viewed..so dont have to set region any more.
ps I wouldnt of set region code to any particular region cos of the fact you only get so many tries before it locks and sometimes its permanant if I was gonna do anything it would be to flash it with region free firmware.

Trying to change region to 2 but it has locked me out is there a code i need


you can only change ur region codes a few times then ur drive becomes locked to the last reset.then youll need to reflash ur drive with firmware.theres a program u can get(free)called any dvd which gets around region codes.
I personally would reflash firmware.this sets drive to "0" which is all regions.
simple precedure.locate firmware,download it,write it to a cd,insert cd which then reflashes auto.remove cd.

Region 2 dvd's in a region 1 dvd-rom


Hi Macca

I have used this program for a long time on one of my HP laptops. It works a treat. I can play discs from any region without changing the region settings on the rom drive itself.

DVD REGION LOCKED


To change this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Insert a DVD from the region you want set on your drive.
  2. Launch the DVD player software and click Play .
  3. If the DVD is from a different region than your current drive setting, a message will come up asking if you wish to change the region.
  4. In the Region Change window, you will see several circular buttons next to the regions. The ones that are highlighted white are the ones available on the current DVD you have inserted in the drive. Select one of these buttons and click OK .
  5. Your region code has been changed; you can now play the DVD.
