Wrong region code

I have a HP Pavillion DV6000 with Pioneer DVD±RW DVR-K17B ATA device when i try to watch a dvd it comes up with wrong region code but wont allow me to change the code it says your driver will let you change region code 0 times "device manager and then right click on properties, and then there should be a seciton on region code."

This does nothing once region code is locked in

How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also "patch" your DVD drives firmware, you find patched DVD drives firmwares here (freeware but it may be a bit tricky and "dangerous").

How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie(freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi i want to unlock my laptop to any region, can you help


PC DVD drives can have the region code changed 5 times only.
Whatever region you set it to on the last available change will be the units permanent region from then on!!!

Any hardware modification to the unit to 'unlock' it is a violation of many countries laws and absolutely unlawful in the U.S..

The region codes are there to protect the copyrights of the media producers and ensure the units proper operation with inserted media.
