YOU CANT the ps2 is REGION LOCKED so you can only watch the dvds on the ps2 that match the region code, there is NO software to unlock this and there is NO way to make them work.

Need to make my dvd player multi region


This is not a Toshiba problem.

Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.

Blame the movie and record companies.

Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.

It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.

Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on your TV anyway.

Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive, then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also, you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it yourself.
