Not really. You could rip the DVD on your computer, then burn it to a new DVD without regional encoding.

Or you could install linux to run on your PS3 and use any number of software solutions under Linux: http://www.psubuntu.com/

But you're not going to be able to just play out of region DVDs as-is.

Will not play Blu-Ray


If the Blue-ray movie disc does not play then the Region Code of the disc does not match the Blye-ray player's region code. This is the same type of Region code locking as they have on DVD discs.
For Blue-ray region code information, check out this WEB site.

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)

My Panasonic blu ray player DMPBD 30 does not play region B blu ray discs. How do I unlock the region codes?


Hi

The region codes or unlock hack for this model is not available, if you want to make it region free then you'll need a universal remote like a pronto remote or a One for all remote and then would need to enter the HEX codes to make it region free. It can't be done with the factory supplied remote.

You can buy a pronto remote from this link---

Pronto remote hex codes


Please ask for any clarifications and accept this solution if found helpful.

Cannot play dvd's from overseas


Your BluRay player is probably set/fixed to Region 2 (if you are in UK/EU). Most devices let you change the region bashing some strange combination of buttons on the remote control (engineer code/command), that allows it to be set to different regions or preferably REGION 0 (region free).

You can most likely find this by google'ing your BluRay player with the words region engineer code, but if you supply the make and model, don't mind having a look for you.

Unlock the region code to play imported blue-ray movies


Short answer...yes, would you like to invest what would likely be days learning the process? There may be a mod ship out there somewhere, but unless you are willing to modify the PS3 in someway that would likely void any warranties, then you're going to have to find a DVD for your region. A mod without a chip would involve installing linux in addition to the OS that the playstation comes with. I'm sure the process has gotten easier since I last checked, but I found it too painstaking.

I bought a DVD and I played it on my laptop. It worked on the laptop but when i put it into the DVD player it wouldn't play. So I tryed playing the DVD in the PC and it also worked on there. Again I...


DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??

Panasonic model dvd-la95 says it doesn't recognize region code of movie


Did you buy the movie from another country?

Different parts of the world have what is called region codes: North America is 1, Europe is 2 etc...
You cannot play a movie that you have bought from... say the UK on a DVD player you bought from the States.
