Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
Hi I was wondering if there was an unlock code for the dvd drive as I have changed the region code 3 times (I wasn't aware this could happen) Many thanks, Elle
You can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks onto that region. There are firmware upgrades for various model DVDs on the Internet that makes the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake in upgrading the firmware or installing the wrong firmware version then the DVD drive is turned into a piece of junk.
The best way to solve your problem is to install software that defeats the region code so you can play DVDs from any region.
I use a region free program fronm DVD Idle, it is not very expensive and there are other similar programs on the Internet. Use Google to search for them.
Have a look at www.dvdidle.com
