Re: changing dvd region settings on LW60 laptop

0 means the region is perfect you can play all dvd regions.

This is what you would want if you're going to watch NTSC, PAL, etc. movies.

Hi, DVD drive issue, new TOSHIBA A660-17t laptop. DVD movies freeze after sometime (at various points). Tried different players - no help. Those movies work on other laptop. Movies from HDD...

The problem here is with the lens. It is weakened by constant playing of media.
It is usually not very advisable to watch movies, or play songs directly from the DVD drive. This is because this damages the lens especially when you rewind and fast forward on it.
When ever you want to watch a movie, it is best you copy it onto your HDD first, then watch. You could delete it later when you are done if you are 'space conscious'.
In the mean time, you would have your lens checked, and probalbly changed.

I hope that this was helpful?
Have a nice day.

My compaq laptop says i cant change the region

You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.

My pc dvd drive won't let me change region back

No its not a bug most DVD-ROM computer drives allow you 4 or 5 region changes first check your region code and number at DVD Region Info it will tell you region code Australia is 4 UK is 2 sand so one plus you region changes

I however do suggest removing your region code from your DVD-ROM using a region free firmwar or on your PC you can use it is however a bit pricey the region 0 firmware hack would be better.

An easy way to make your computer permanently region free is to install "DVD Region + CSS Free":
Yep, or Any DVD ( from Slysoft, which I've bought. Full price is $40, but it's worth it if you have several DVDs from regions outside of your DVD-ROM. Or you can use VLC (, a freeware media player that will play all DVDs, regardless of region coding. And yes, this is legal. (But it can be buggy)

Bant change settings on dvd drive

Usually once you play three DVDs that aren't from your native region on a DVD drive the drive gets permanently changed to that region. Using software like AnyDVD will enable you to fool the drive into thinking all your DVDs are region 0. Otherwise you would need to get a hold of the drive manufactueres debuging software or maybe a hacked firmware for the drive to be able to get it back to the proper region.
