Remove Write protection from DVD disc

1. Insert the DVD disc into the computer's DVD-ROM burner drive. Click on "Burn files to disc" from the window that automatically pops up.

2. Type a name for the DVD disc in the "Burn a Disc" box. Click "Show formatting options" and choose a formatting option.

3. Choose "Live File System" to allow files to be copied immediately to the DVD disc, much like sending data to a USB flash drive or floppy disk. Live File System discs can only be read by Windows XP or later versions. Choose "Mastered" to have files be copied to the DVD all at once. This is the standard burning method; discs can be played back on any DVD-ROM drive.

4. Click "Next" to prepare the disc. Files can now be copied to the disc using the selected method.

Dvd recorder won't play disc

your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

Can not change region

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: -,free.htm

DVD Region, can not change the DVD changes left.

Hello Shuzz, try this, go to my computer, then right click on your DVD burner, then click on properties. Then click on hardware, and then click on your burner device. After clicking your burner device, you should see a tab for DVD region. You can set the region from this option. Try that, I hope it works for you.

Dvd burner problems

I dont understand your question. If you mean burnt dvd's dont play on your dvd player, Check your region code and ensure your burn was region free or region specific to your region.
ensure you used the proper format, PAL or NTSC
and enusre you copied the DVD and didnt drag and drop the files as a data disc.

if you are burning a movie from a avi or mpg file you might need to encode it to dvd format..

i didnt understand your question so if i didnt assume correct please repost it thanks :)
