You cannot make a player play all regions. You can however research to find a program for your computer that will enable it to play all regions.

To remove region code on Maxmade blu-ray player so I can play both DVDs and B-Rs which I have bought from various regions


Actually, you can use a Free and all-sided Blu-ray Player which can play Blu-ray/DVD disc, folder or ISO on Windows & Mac.

Leawo Blu-ray player acts like hardware Blu-ray player to play Blu-ray discs, folders and ISO files on PC to enhance your Blu-ray movie experience. As a region free Blu-ray player software program, it could help you easily play back the latest released Blu-ray discs without quality loss. It's also a free DVD player to play back DVD discs/folders, an ISO player to directly play back ISO files, a free video player to play up to 1080P HD videos and a free audio player to play even DTS-5.1 audio in lossless quality. During playback, this professional Blu-ray player software allows you to select/load subtitles and adjust video and audio. It even provides detailed playback navigation to let you fully control media playback.

Just for suggestion. Hope it helps. :)

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

Playing DVDs


NoThese days most of the companies are producing Region 0/ALL DVDs If you can get them OR buy a dual region DVD i.e. Region 2/4 which can play on both the regions. Most of the DVDs produced in India are multiregions. Choice is yours now

Some american dvds don't work on our dvd player.


DVD players have a region code in them, and each dvd is encoded with a regon code. This is a copyright protection from the movie industry. Dvd's can be made without a region code, if so they will play on all machines. Some dvd players let you change the region code only a few times before you are locked out. Some dvd players will not allow you to change the region code at all.

My wife bought a TV series on DVD while she was in the Middle East and now that she brought them back to Canada we are not able to play them. How do we deal with this?


Region-free DVD players are sold through various venues.Try playing it in a computer DVD player/burner. Some burners are region-free. Some software can copy your purchased disks, removing the region code in the process.

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

Cannot Play Commercially Produced DVDs (Panasonic DMR-ES40V)


Dear FixYa Team,

Thanks for your inquiry re my problem.

Since I posted, I THINK I may have solved my problem. I unplugged the unit for an hour or so, plugged it in again, and it DID play a "commercial" DVD that I had tried earlier. I don't know if this is a permanent solution -- we'll see. If not, I'll take the next step in seeking some help.

Thanks again.

Pinnacle produced DVDs wont play in computer


Internal DVD Burners are dirt cheap, so I would shop for a replacement Burner to solve the problem (you can find one on ebay for $30 bucks or less shipped to your door).
Good luck.

DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

order.
Kindly leave a few seconds between each entry, the microprocessor is slow
with these entries.

player.
OR
