Hi Tyshar

I need to know some background information before I can give some suggestions.

1. Do you have DVD's that are from out of country?
2. What is the software that you are using to watch the mvies with?
3. What is the model of DVD drive you have in the computer?

Let me know and I'll be glad to try and assist you. :-)

    Normally the system will prompt you to authorize the changing of regions if you are watching a DVD that isn't in the region that the DVD player is originally assigned. If you havn't received this prompt or don't even watch Non Region1 DVD's then unfortunately you will have to contact the notebook maker for further info. The error is coming from a firmware chip on the DVD drive and not actually from Windows. I'm sorry to say but I don't have any other steps at this time to that will assist you. I'm hopiing that the notebook maker will have a utility to reprogram the DVD rom and reset the counter. There are no settings in windows at this time that can be adjusted to fix this. Sorry I couldn't help further.

My compaq laptop says i cant change the region


You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.

Laptop dvd drive region locked in R1, need to be mostly R2


keep in mind you can only change the region 5 times and cannot change it anymore after that (regarless to windows reinstallation , its a hardware thing) you might wanna consider purchasing "dvd region free" or use a 3rd party region free firmware to bypass that

Changing the DVD Region will allow you to watch or listen to CDs and DVDs made in other countries. To do this, follow these steps:

Note: Users can only change the DVD region code 5 times. After the 5th time, the region code is locked and cannot be changed anymore.

1. Takeout any CD/DVD from the driver
2. Select Start
3. Click Control Panel
4. Select System and Maintenance
5. Open the Device Manager
6. Click DVD/CD-ROM drives
7. Find the DVD or CD drive you want to modify and double-click it
8. Click the DVD Region Tab
9. Find the country the DVD was made and select it
10. Push Ok

I CANT CHANGE THE REGION ON MY DVD, although I have 1 change left


you can flash the drive with region free firmware (best option if you know what youre doing)
you can reinstall os giving you extra tries.
or you can use a program called any dvd(free)which enable you to watch any region (safe)
flash is best if youre not sure or cant find software let me know and give your dvd details(firmware)
eg freecom dvdrw 523252

Changing the DVD Region code


Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other

Mac dvd drive regency code locked


This is not a feature of the Mac - this is a feature of DVD-ROM drives and is part of the DVD standard.

DVD-ROM drives, once changed 5 times, can NOT be changed.

The only solution would be to purchase an external DVD drive, and set IT to region 2, and leave your internal one set to region 1.

The region settings are legal issues with the DVD standard - the 5-time limit is permanent, hardcoded, and unchangeable.
