Most DVD players in Malaysia and Thailand, even bought from large stores are modified to play all regions. Probably true for most other Far East countries. Have a holiday out here or get a friend to bring one back. Alternatively buy an unlocked player from www.world-import.com.

You can have them converted (some places do it for a charge) or they can be played on a computer with a compatable DVD ROM and windows media player.

Hello Anthony,

We actually gotta crack open the code via a firmware upgrade ...

download

http://aiwaownersnetwork.tripod.com/pages/lg/5000_series_firmware.html

then burn it on a CD-R

put the CD in the player and then a menue pops up and you can choose the region code. "0" is free.
this works 100%

Thanks

Fame !

How do i change my region code back?


There are three options you can try: 1. download the DVD drive's firmware from the manufacturer and re-flash the drive's firmware, this will reset any region code in 99% of all DVD drives. http://www.ehow.com/how_2316521_flash-dv? 2. you can use software that, in realtime as you play the videos back, removes region code out of the file transfer stream from DVD to playback software. The best software to do this that I know of is called "AnyDVD". http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html 3. use region free DVD playback software like VLC, which is freeware. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ The first option is the riskiest, if something fails while flashing the firmware, it could disable the drive, but it is 100% FREE. The second option involves buying software and making sure its running before watching any DVD's in the future. The third option is probably the safest, cheapest, and simplest for you. The DVD drive is not going to prevent playback of a region 1 or 2 movie if its set to region 4, its the playback software that makes this decision. If you rely on commercial DVD playback software or Windows Media Player, they will not allow the playback. VLC is region free, it doesn't even check the region the DVD was produced for.

Cannot play my dvd,s in my geoghraphic region of the world.


There are a couple ways to go about changing your region on your DVD player. First is this program:
DVD Region+CSS Free - Watch & Copy Any DVD!
US$ 39.95


dvd-region-free-b.gif Tell Friend
DVD Region+CSS Free enables you to watch and copy any region-coded/CSS-encrypted DVD movies on any DVD drive! It fully supports region-protected (RPC2) DVD drives, and does not require any firmware modifications. It will even work if you have used up your region counter and can no longer change the DVD drive's region.

DVD Region+CSS Free works automatically in the background to make a DVD appear region code free and unprotected to any DVD player and DVD copy software. With the help of DVD Region+CSS Free, you can watch any region coded DVD movies with a software DVD player like PowerDVD or WinDVD! With DVD Region+CSS Free's help, DVD copy software (such as DVDFab, DVD X Copy, InterVideo DVD Copy, etc.) is able to copy DVD's which are CSS protected!

New Feature: DVD Region+CSS Free decrypts not just DVD's, it now allows you also to play, copy and rip protected Audio CD's!
Download DVD Region+CSS Free


SECONDLY, You can enter a code on the player that will set it to a certain region. You can find your code at this website: http://www.dvdcodes.net
If it is not on this list, you can also try this site for more codes: http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/info/multiregion/hackable.asp

This site will give you instructions on how to enter the hack code depending on your brand name player: http://www.dvd365.net/?hacks/pacific.htm

Regarding codes


hi janak911, Region coding is how Hollywood studios stagger dvd movie releases across the planet. These codes ensure that one country doesn't get a DVD movie before the same movie is out in that country's theatres. In their corporate omniscience, movie studios have carved the planet into regions with each region having a specific code.

All DVD players and discs have region codes. A DVD player and disc must be of the same region or the disc will not play.

If you want to watch movies from other countries, you need a multiregion DVD player. This will allow you to play any disc from any region. However, because TV standards differ, you might need a specialized NTSC/SECAM/PAL TV or a DVD player that can output any signal to the standard your TV accepts.hope u get the point.have a nice time.

Making my DVD Player Region Free


It is not a permanent hack, you will have to to it over for every out of region movie you put in.

1. When "REGION CODE ERROR" shows on screen after you've input your wrong-region DVD you push "ON SCREEN".

2. When the DVD-menu is showing push "ON SCREEN" again and another DVD-menu will appear.

3. Move the arrow over to the clock and press enter. The menu asks for "TIME" and you write 0:00:00 and push enter.

4. You will now see the menu for the movie. Remove the DVD-menu by pushing "ON SCREEN" once. You can now watch the movie.
