DVD player will not play a standard DVD after playing a Netflix movie


Could be a region setting issue. Go to DVD preferences and restore defaults. Try running your standard DVD from an outboard player and see if it works. Check your region setting- should be Region 1 for American DVDs. Any error messages?

Changing dvd region codes


You can't change the DVD coding. That part is how the DVD is recorded. However, your Mac will play DVDs from another region. It just typically defaults to one region. I have deleted the DVD player software (and preferences files) before and reloaded it to play DVDs from another region. If you plan to regularly play DVDs from multiple regions, you might want to look for special DVD software that will read DVDs from multiple regions.

Unlock apple dvd codes


There is no way you can do that. Its hardcoded. One option is using the VLC program to watch your DVDs. It doesn't have the region protection. VideoLAN Download official VLC media player for Mac OS

I am looking for multi zone crack for Pioneer BDC-TD04 (Sony Vaio laptop) Blu Ray drive, suggestions?


DVD REGION FREE & BLUE-RAY REGION FREE
To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Geting rid of the regioncode for mac


Firstly try running VLC player (free download) to play your DVDs. Apparently this can remove region protection on-the-fly. Alternatively an application called Slysoft AnyDVD will automatically remove region protection as long as it is running when you insert the DVD, although I am unsure if this is MAC compatible.
Hope this helps,

My mac keeps ejecting any dvd i put in?


Because this could go in the way of a hardware issue or be an issue with the types of DVDs you are using (even legal and commercial copies), so I have three procedures below, I would suggest you try, in order to resolve your Macbook issue with auto-ejecting DVDs.

Procedure #1
-PRAM RESET-
The Parameter RAM Reset is a good troubleshooting process for working with various functions including refresh rate, screen resolutions, and DVD region issues to name a few.

Steps:
• First, shut your Macbook down properly
• Once your Mac is shutdown, locate the following keys on the keyboard:
Command, Option, P, and R.

You will need to hold those keys down simultaneously .

• Now turn on the Macbook.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys.

• You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the start up sound for the third time.
• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.
Run the next procedure (below) from within your Mac OS X Desktop.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} Procedure # 2

-RUN DISK UTILITY -

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utility run this repair permissions until completion

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary, quit Disk Utility.

Proceed to the last procedure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure #3:
Check this Apple support page for Macbooks and make sure your Macbook is update on its firmware and SMC updates:
Apple Macbook Support page
------------------------------------------------------------------
•Now try a few types of DVDs, commercial, burned and blank DVDs and if you have different brands of blank DVDs make sure to try them as well.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apple has done it best, by providing a great support page, that I would like to provide you as a final troubleshooting support option:

Apple Support Link:
Troubleshooting the slot load optical disc drive
You have your work cut out for you, but not to worry, follow these procedures listed in this post and in the links I have provided and you will have an answer as to if the issue with the DVDs auto-eject from your Macbook, is a hardware, software or DVD disc issue.

Regards,

Hi Alison,
if you,ve exceeded the limited amount of changes, then you can,t make any more changes.
your only hope is to find a program such as CSS region free.
install this on the computer, which should allow you to play all region dvds.
Hope this helps :)
