Dvd recorder won't play disc

your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

We are trying to use the built in DVD and keep getting "regional code error "

region errors are because those devices try to lock you from using dvd's from different countries

My dvd burner wont burn dvd's it says insert a blank disc and it is already in the burner

try 3 things. ONE AT A TIME. #1 change your burn speed to a slower setting some dvd's will not burn as fast as they say on box.

#2.update firm ware for burner go to manufacturer's web site for your brand of dvds being used.

#3 change brand of DVD used. there are 3 major manufactures for almost all dvds and cd. The people who make disc for Sony and the other 2 companies that make everybody elses. (ie TDK,Memorex, etc....)

DVD region

You miss-understood. AnyDvd copies directly from the DVD drive to the hard disk, and removes region info as it does. Then a backup DVD can be created from the image file. The image file can also be accessed by DVDShrink to alter the size to fit.

Acer 5510 notebook Matshita UJ-845D DVD/CD-R Writer Problem

Unfortunately there are no updates available for the UJ-8xx series (except for Sony - which won't work on other machines) as it just uses an old generic Windows optical device driver.

Your problems lie elsewhere.

These units have very very very strong region restriction - no reported patches or fixes that I can find...

So they come with an original region (the local one for where you bought the laptop) set by the manufacturer. You only have 5 possible region changes before it locks on to the final region permanently*.

There is very little info on the Matsushita (now Panasonic) website - but it appears that when you insert a different region disk into the drive it will automatically change the region restriction setting to that new region (and there goes one of your 5 allowed changes??).

If this is correct then you may start with for example a region 2 restriction (whatever the local region is for your computer) and record various DVDs in region 2 format. Then one day you try (deliberately or accidentally) a region 4 disk. Your drive reads it and changes the default to ... region 4 (using one allowed change)... next you put in one of your old disks - and the drive restriction default is changed back to region 2 (using another of your 5 changes) - until you've used up the 5 changes - when it's locked.

Because it's an odd number, chances are you'll end up with a permanent non-local region restriction...

* and Panasonic/Matsushita will only change it for a cost apparently...

so not very good news...

To help you, try this handy little free tool. It will tell you whether your drive is restricted, which region it's currently set to; and how many changes of the 5 you've already used:

now if I could just find out how to change the current region...
