Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

Ive contacted Sony and they wont give an unlock code for the rdr dc 100, yet the store will sell stating multi regional. I have region 1 dvds to play! Have some heart Sony give us the deal you've taken our...


Then you have a case, if a store claims that, they are responsible for making it right by fixing the problem or refunding the original amount you paid for it. The only loop hole in this is, they may say it will play in the region you live according to the requirements of that part of the world. But it should be stated that it set to region 1 only.

New DVD from Australia will not play


Hi patjune333,

Welcome to the wonderful and stifling world of DVD region coding! This is a 'security and protection' implementation that has been around for awhile, though most folks have had the luxury of remaining blissfully unaware of it.

See, there are (last I knew) six different region codes in the world. Based on the way that the DVDs are coded (as well as DVD players), discs made in particular regions will only play in particular DVD players. So if you've got a DVD from Australia, which is Region 4, and you're trying to play it in the States or Canada, which is Region 1, this is most likely not going to work. Movies are released on the big screen across the globe at different times, and this is one of the main reasons for the region coding.

Many DVD players (at least PC ones) will give you an option of which region code you wish to use if you try to play a disc from a different region; however, this is not always the case. There are also 'region-free' software programs out there that might alleviate your problem, but I'm not sure about the legality of them. Bear in mind that the Region Coding generally interfaces with the physical firmware on the DVD player so if you use a new player to play a Region 4 DVD you might not be able to play any DVDs from North America.

Here we go - check out this link for detailed info on region coding.

Hope that helps!
