You can change the DVD region fout times only, the fourth change will lock on that region permanently.
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.

To change the Region code on your DVD 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 DVDs 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 (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Im not able to play my dvd when i insert the dvd in the dvd drive


Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs and CDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.
For details on making your DVD player region free, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Ran out of region changes for Acer Aspire 5920G laptop DVD drive, stuck on region 1, would like to change it to multi-regional, can you help tell me how?


  1. Look at your DVD player and find the name of the company that produced it. Then, find the product number. For example: a DVD 622 model from Phillips.

  2. Go to a website such as dvdhacks.co.uk/ to find DVD hack codes. The players will often be listed by the company name first and model number second. If you can't locate your DVD player on the website, type the model number and the company into a search engine to see if any other sites have the hack there.

  3. Follow the steps on the website. Here are the steps for the Phillips DVD 622:
    1. Hold the stop button on the remote until the disc tray opens.
    2. Press the numbers 2812 on your remote to access the region menu.
    3. Press the OK button to set the region code to 9.
    4. Turn the player off and wait several minutes.

  4. Test your DVD player with a previously unplayable DVD. If it doesn't work, check the web to see if there are any other codes listed for your player.

Changing the region code for DVD616K :

1. Press OPEN/CLOSE, and wait for the tray to open.

2. Use the remote control to input digital key '1', '1', '1', '0' in that order

if that dont work go 1, 1 1, 1 in that
order.
Kindly leave a few seconds between each entry, the microprocessor is slow
with these entries.
3. Press number '7', '8' or '9' to display the current region code of the DVD
player.
OR
4. Press any number of '0' to '6' to set the required region code. The OSD

6. The region setting will be saved in the FLASH memory.
7. Press OPEN/CLOSE again, the DVD player will return to normal operation.

I have windows vista the dvd-rw that i burn does not play on dvd players


Not all DVD players will play rewritable DVD disks. Check for compatibility. Also, burned DVD's need to be "finalized" and the region code of the burner must match the player. Check your software docs for steps to finalize and setting your region code. If you are in the U.S. your region code is 1.
