I bought my daughter some dvds but they are region 4 and we cannot play them on her portable dvd player. We bought a dvd player thinking it was code free but only found out that the US only has region 1 dvds. The dvd we bought today is Insignia NS-DVD1-A and the portable dvd is Polaroid PDM-0817. Do you know of a code to enter for either of these to make them region free or to at least play region 4.

If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.
The solution depends on where you bought your dvd player, certain dvds are released in north america or japan, etc, and they have different 'region codes' - meaning they can only be played by devices that have a matching code. To clarify, if you bought your dvd player in america, chances are you can only play dvds released in north america.

what you need is the region code for your dvd player. so you can play region one and any other region dvds. what is the brand and model of your dvd player? then i can check and see if there is a hacking code for you.

I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the
United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by
instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu
will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.
I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.
