Question about Sony CRX835E CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
Sebastian imported some Avatar DVDs from the UStates.
They will not play on our Sony DVD player bought in the UK.
We think thjis has something to do with the "coding" and the US DVD s are not compatible with our machine??
Is it possible to change the settings on the DVD player to play these US DVDs, ideally the home player would play any DVD at any time
Is there a Fix?
1) those DVDs are coded in Region 1(Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda)
you will have to change the region code on the dvd-rom to region 1
2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)
3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software
