Do you know where to change the region setting?
If not go to the Device Manager - click on DVD/CD-ROM Driver - then right click on your DVD drive, and click on Properties then DVD Region. You can change your region you require.
If you cannot change the region and the region is locked or you have run out of changes, you can install Region Free software on your computer that allows you to play DVDs from any region.
There may be freeware available on the Internet (do a Google search), but I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com
it costs a few dollars but I have no problems with it, my DVD drive is locked on Region 1.
There are firmware upgrades available for DVD drives that make them region free, but if you make a mistake with the wrong firmware update then your DVD drive is now a piece of junk.

How can I change the region settings on my Sony DAV DZ870W many thanks, Shane


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.

Thompson dvd player unlock code dv2137


Just bought THOMSON DV2137 in Australia (region 4) It plays Aus but not US. A small slip in the user's manual gave these (verbatim) instructions. UNFORTUNATELY it isn't working on my player."This unit has been set to play region 4 DVD discs. If you wish to use this unit outside of region 4 territory you can change the region setting by following the instructions below.1) Turn on the unit.2) Remove disc and press SETUP to enter SETUP menu.3) Press VOL+.VOL-,VOL+,VOL-, by order, then press MUTE to enter Region Code setting. [stays in SETUP menu]4) Press LEFT / RIGHT to choose between 1-4 or ALL region."
Perhaps this will work for someone else or will trigger a clue.

I have a Samsung BD-C7500 blu ray dvd player with USA region setting and need to change/convert to Australia region setting... Is this possible?


The details below only work for the DVD Region (dependant on your Firmware) and not the Blu Ray.

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player on.

3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player stops doing anything.

4. Press the REPEAT button - just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller - and enter the players region code from below on the number pad.

5. The the players region code should appear at the top left corner of the screen.

6. Quickly enter a "9" to make the player region free. (Just try pressing 9 on the remote controller until you see 9 appear in the upper left corner of your TV screen.)

7. Open and close the disc tray. Power down and power up again.

All region codes are as follows

1 - 2 9 3 3 4
2 - 5 7 5 3 8
3 - 5 6 7 3 2
4 - 7 6 8 8 4
5 - 5 3 8 1 4
6 - 2 4 4 6 2

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 pc dvd drive won't let me change region back


No its not a bug most DVD-ROM computer drives allow you 4 or 5 region changes first check your region code and number at DVD Region Info it will tell you region code Australia is 4 UK is 2 sand so one plus you region changes http://www.visualdomain.net/

I however do suggest removing your region code from your DVD-ROM using a region free firmwar or on your PC you can use http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm it is however a bit pricey the region 0 firmware hack would be better.
