You can get a region free Blu-ray/DVD player program on your PC and then you can play any Blu-ray/DVD discs of any region codes. You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player which is a region free Blu-ray, DVD and 4K player.

There's a program called Leawo Blu-ray Copy that can create region-free Blu-ray/DVD copies. If it's the region codes on your discs that's causing the playback problem, try making region-free copies of your Blu-ray/DVD collection. Here's a detailed guide for you:https://www.leawo.org/tutorial/remove-blu-ray-disc-region-codes-1334.html

The person asking what a "blue ray" is, is a troll, and there is no such thing as a "Blu-Ray DVD" anymore than there is "DVD VHS".

It's a Blu-Ray disc Mr. "Guru".

Hi Weebok,

If you have a standard (conventional) DVD player or DVD recorder, it will NOT play back Blu-Ray DVD's.
A Blu-Ray DVD player or recorder WILL play back any other standard format DVD, and many Blu-Ray players will play standard DVD's from ANY region.
The only way you can play the Blu Ray DVD you have will be to buy a Blu-Ray player or take it back and exchange it for a standard Region 1 (USA & Canada); Region 2 (Europe) or Region 3 (Asia) disc.
Hope this helps!

How do I unlock the dvd region only


Hardware solution: The easiest way to play different regions DVD on Mac is to buy a region-free player, however, if you've already got a nice DVD player, you can use hacks to turn off the region code in your DVD player. Note that hacking your DVD player region code is a violation of the DMCA and this is ******* in the United States.
Software solution: If you live in the United States and you want a solution that will work on any DVD player but not to hack your DVD player, another best solution for you is to make a copy of the movie, although backing up copies of DVD is currently ******* in the United States, it will become available in the future. Then what you need to do is to using one of the popular ripping programs on the market, here, I would like to suggest you Free DVDAid, which enables you to make a 1:1 copy of the original DVD disc without quality loss with all audio streams and subtitle tracks well preserved. You will get a DVD that works that can work in any DVD player.

I need a region free code for my Insignia NS-BRDVD player (a bluray/DVD player purchased in Canada).


This worked for my NS-BRDVD2-CA, basically the same model as yours.
1. Turn on the player.
2. Press the home/setup button and release. Enter 9-1-1-3 on the number pad.
3. "Configure player" appears in the wheel menu to the left of the screen. Using the up or down arrow button on your remote, navigate to it and press enter.
4. Three menus appear on a blue screen in the centre of the set: DVD Region, BD Region, and BD Profile. Select the one you want and press enter.
5. A grey screen appears in the centre showing the various regions. Navigate to the one you want and press enter.
6. Exit the grey menu by pressing the left arrow key, then press it again to exit the blue menu. The screen will appear as it did in step 3 before you pressed enter.
7. Open the drawer and put in your foreign disc. Wait a little bit. When it's ready, the disc's main menu appears. Play it like you would any disc.
8. Voilà! Consider yourself fortunate: You're now able to play foreign DVDs and Blu-rays on your cheap North American player.

P.S. Remember that you have to do this every time you want to play a foreign DVD, because when it's shut off the player automatically defaults to Region 1 for DVDs and Region A for Blu-rays (i.e. North America for DVD and the Americas for Blu-ray). The "configure player" menu disappears sometimes, too; to see it again, simply re-perform the "home/setup, 9-1-1-3" hack.

Lately when we rent a dvd our player says that it can not read the disc. I have tried cleaning it and that doesn't help. Other dvds still work.


I think you just got a bad DVD. Might be scratched, might be the wrong region, or it just might be incompatible with your player. I would tell them it won't play give me another one.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

My Panasonic blu ray player DMPBD 30 does not play region B blu ray discs. How do I unlock the region codes?


Hi

The region codes or unlock hack for this model is not available, if you want to make it region free then you'll need a universal remote like a pronto remote or a One for all remote and then would need to enter the HEX codes to make it region free. It can't be done with the factory supplied remote.

You can buy a pronto remote from this link---

Please ask for any clarifications and accept this solution if found helpful.

I have a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player that will not play Blu-Ray discs rented from BlockBusters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. To Date, of all my 100 regular DVD, and approximately 25 owned Blu-Ray...


BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!
