To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free from: -

My wife played a region 1 DVD 5 times on my Presario M2000 laptop and now it is locked to region 1. can I unlock it to play region 2 again?


No you usually can't. However if you download VLC Player (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) You can play all Dvd regions. It's free, no spyware or anything. I use it and it's great :) Much better than standard media players.

I have a Philips HTS 3371 DVD home theatre and can not play many DVD's as it give wrong region error. Can you please provide the unlock code and how/where to enter it to get it fixed?


Hi -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS 3371


Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.


1. Switch the DVD player ON
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Regards,
BElectric

Difficulty using an external mouse on my IBM Thinkpad T60 laptop


Sometimes a usb mouse requires a driver to install before it can be functional. You can go to the manufacturers website of the mouse and download the driver in accordance with your operating system.
If you have a dvd optical drive than it should say on the face plate of the dvd drive or even in device manger listing. Otherwise, you may simply need to downlaod windows codec pack or use VLC player to play the movie.

Need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region free locked on o1


You can only change the region code up to 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play any region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

DVD region is locked


There is no regional code setting for the DVD drives in laptops. This is all handled by the codec or DVD decoding software. You will need different decoding software or software that covers all the regions. I use Power DVD and have had no problems with some DVD's from France and Germany that a Friend of mine likes to watch. Ran into the region problem with home DVD players for his movies. Unfortunately, I'm only fluent in English, so I don't find them as interesting as he does. Try a different decoder, it should work. You should be able to find decoders or codecs at download.com
