I watch my movies through arcade deluxe. However, some dvd's i have don't play b'cause of the damn region code's. it will only let you change this up to 5 times as you may know. It is already set at region (A) (2)
Standard CD rom drive-Optiarc BD ROM BC-5500S
Is there any way i can make my laptop multi-region???

Arcade Deluxe is nothing more than a **** media center with a useless media player in it - get rid of it.
If you want to play BR disks there are 2 options: either install a good codec pack like
an use WMP or install and use VLC
Important Note!: You can only change your region !!! 5 !!!! times! that is 5 times! I am totally stressing this.....5 times!
You may have to do this a second time so your computer locks on to this region code. If you watch an american blu-ray vid, on the fifth change of the region code your computer locks to this region !FOREVER!
Ok I,m not sure i can solve the problem for you, but have had problems with my acer 6920 G. Hopefully this will help. I was playing blu ray discs on my acer 6920 G wich i believe has the same sony/nec Optiarc blu-ray player. It was playing blu rays fine for a while. then as newer and newer releases were coming out it would not play some blue rays from certain manufacturers (Fox). Then newer releases from other manufacturers would not play. I was getting updates from acer arcade deluxe that would allow me to play some of the newer releases. The only problem i was having was that the updates (patches?) were not keeping up to the newer releases. The last update from acer was corrupted or somthing was wrong with it and then my blu-ray player wouldn't play anything at all. To solve the problem I reinstalled acer arcade deluxe using the acer e recovery management. This fixed the problem. But now back to square 1. My older blue rays will play but not the newer ones. I've been going over this problem for a while now. The Acer site was no help at all. The e-mailed me some solutions both hardware and software but weren't even close to what the problem is. You can try Cyberlink Power DVD 8 and it runs better than the Acer Arcade Deluxe. (They write the updates for the acer arcade deluxe) It is expensive the last time i checked. Hope this helps a little.
Yes get a program called "any dvd" I use it in all my machines, it will allow you to play anything on your machines. it's made by a company www.slysoft.com , it is very cool and you will be able to play every region coded or decoded disks anythig, have a good day. if you do a google search, I have even seen it being given away, but it's not expensive, And it lasts forever with updates , and it does blue ray. and HD
