There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.
The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

I LIVE IN ENGLAND CAN I play a dvd region 1 in my dvd player?


I don't think it would play on your DVD Player unless you DVD Player is "region-free" or "multi-region". Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

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....

How can I unlock my dvd player to play American dvds please?


I think it is against the law for shops in the UK to sell multi-region DVD players. I could not find a hack for this player that worked.
It is possible to convert it on your PC and burn it as a region free Disc.

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.
