Change region


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.

Tip

DVD region code


Generally, your Pioneer DVD 120K player can play any DVDs from your region. As you encounter the situation that can not play the DVD, i guess your DVD from other region. To change the region code of DVD is High-risk operation, it only can be changed less than 5 time, and you are not to recommended to do that. If only for one or several DVD Discs, just remove the DVD region code via a DVD ripper. Of course, if you bought the DVD player from other region, you can change the region code of DVD player permanently.

There are computer programs capable of remove the region code from a DVD, but the result should be burned on a new DVD. Most players don't allow a change in the region code more than once. So on your player nothing to hack. Sorry

For all other options, please use Google.

How do i remove the region codes


With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times). To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.

  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel
  2. Double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.
  4. In Hardware click the Device Manager button.
  5. In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.
  6. This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the DVD drive you wish to change the region for.
  7. In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.
  8. Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.

Unlock region code on pc


I assume you are asking how to remove the region code for DVD player.
Some dvd's are region-free, but they are recorded thatway. The only way I can think of to make a disc region free would be tomake a copy and remove the region (making it region-free) during theduplication process. I used anydvdand dvdshrinkprograms, which do allow this capability. DVD shrink is free, but I thinkanydvd was like $30.

Can i remove the US region code from my Samsung BD-C8000 portable Blue ray player.


The region code on the player is built in. It cannot be removed.
However, there are ways of changing the region code on the disc itself.

Try speaking to someone at a local audio/video shop (somewhere that does video editing etc), they might be able to rip the contents of the DVD, and re-burn it as a different region.
