How do I change the region code


One way, of course--probably the simplest and safest--would be to play a Region 1 sourced disc in you Australia player, but you would have only a few times you could switch back and forth between "America" and your own region's "Australia" recordings before your player "died" permanently to one or both regions.

Smarter would be to segregate your discs by the two regions; acquire a second player; convert it to region 1 by playing a N. America disc; and, afterwards, play each disc, respectively, on its own like-country-coded player. Players are inexpensive enough to make that feasible. If you are outputting to an entertainment center, it should be little problem to find an AB switching devise to switch from one player output to the other so that you two "countries" can share the same sound center.

I would be hesitant about trying to defeat the anti-piracy circuitry built into all players by other means. Or, at least, contact your player's manufacturer or tech support for advice.

Bh7530 region free code can anyone help


I don't think so.
When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

My son brought a disk over the Internet he is unable to play it


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

for DVDs you are in region 4, america is in region 1
the only other region that it would play from is south america

so it will not work untill you find a dvd player that plays DVDs from all regions

i would try and get your money back from the company and say it doesnt work (act dumb) dont go saying its wrong region. just say it doesnt work

and if you want to watch the DVD buy it from austrailia

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
