Change region code after reached limit


To change the 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 DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

For sony vaio vgn-ns135e: my dvd drive plays cd, but not dvd. how can I fix it? oh, my sd slot doesn't read either. thanks. aimee


From the problems you're having, im assuming you have reloaded or updated your windows install, as you seem to be missing codecs and drivers.
The codecs are what allow the computer to recognize different video formats, to get full support for video formats, i would suggest going to download.com search for 'codec pack' and download the 'windows essentials media codec pack'. That should solve your problem, however if it does not you can also try a different media player, the best one is free and is called VLC media player, and can be downloaded from download.com as well.
The memory card reader most likely just needs a device driver. here is a list of all the device drivers available for your laptop from sony : http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNNS135ES&LOC=3 scroll down to ' Memory card reader/writer' and expand by clicking the '+' next to it then download it and install. you may want to have a look at the list to make sure theres nothing else you need if you have infact had windows reloaded since purchasing the laptop.

Help with my cd player/burner


There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.

I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P.
The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.

I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.

I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.

My new DVD player will play all CDs except the ones I burned on my laptop. Why is this and how can I get the DVD player to play those CDs? when I record a dvd on my lap top it will allow me to play it...


Hi,
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.

Cd dvd drive only recognises cds


Just check if the region code has not been locked. If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try. If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check. Lemme know if it works.
