You will need to get a second dvd player locally to play those movies. Some DVD players allow you to change region codes but limit you to 5 changes, it locks in on the 5th.

I need to change the region code from the US to the UK for my HP Pavillion dv2000 laptop. The hardware under properties says its a slimtype DVD ADS8A1H ATA device? I have already gone past the 5 allowed...


Hello,

If you have used the 5 allowed changes, then your device is locked at the last one. You may be able to unlock it so it works region free. There are tools on the internet that allow you to do this.

The free way is to just install videoLAN (VLC). If yo use videolan as your video player, it should play any dvd without needing to modify firmware or "hack".

If you want to try to modify your locked DVD region codes, a good place is www.videohelp.com. Here is the direct link to the regon page:

My laptop won't play region 1 dvds, I bought the laptop in the uk and now moved to canada, can anybody please assist me


From Control Panel, click System, Device Manager, click + beside DVD Drive, right click you drive and select properties, DVD Region Tab, and change Region to Canada. You can only chnage this 5 times until it locks on the last change. Look into a program called AnyDVD as it will play Region Free.

Region Codes


You could change the Region Code of your DVD back & forth, but that will only work a limited number of times (usually 4). Or else you can pick up an external DVD drive, configure your internal DVD for either Region 1 or Region 2, and configure the external device for the other region.

DVD Player region coding changes


You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.
