Region Code Error

When I try to play a DVD on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop, I get a region error code. I am prompted to either leave the region code the same or change it. It says I can only change it 5 times, but even when you try to change it, it doesn't work. I have googled this error but find many sites that don't really offer up a true solution to the problem

Did you check on how many times you have changed the region.. if you have not yet changed try uninstalling the drivers of your dvd drive from device manager, restart the system and windows will update the drivers automatically. try doing that if your os is xp

Problem with the Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop Computer DVD Drive Locked to Regon 1 & i live in Regon 4


To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Trying to unlock my DVD and get it back to region 1. Dell laptop with Vista.. An software out there or freeware that can help? Thanks in advance


I would recommend that you download a freeware application called VLC Media Player by VideoLAN.It is an open-source utility that is free to use, and plays virtually any type of video, including any type of DVD. The best part is that it completely avoids having to unlock the DVD to set the region.It also works on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, and even other more obscure operating systems. The link to download VLC Media Player is here:

I hope this helps you out. Please feel free to share your comments about how this has helped you, and also to rate my solution. Thank you and good luck!

Reigon code


The region code for the DVD drive can be change 5 times. After the 5th time, the drive is locked to that region. This is by design, and Dell will not warrant the drive for being locked or help circumvent the DVD Region code system.

You can search google for region code reset and find possible workarounds.

Changing the DVD Region code


Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other
