Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop would only give me three goes to lock the dvd region code, problem was it would not except anything other than region/zone code 1. I can't use the dvd to watch any dvd's as I live in a zone/region 4, so all my dvd's are this zone. Yes I could buy region 1 dvd's but then I can only watch them on the laptop. I have been told you can flash the hard drive? but when researching this find out you can bugger your hard drive if you dont do it right or have the right flash?, Have looked at sites to do this but none seems to work, downloaded some dvd region free program, but that didnt work either, (Or I didnt fiqure it out right). Apart from spending a fortune on paying someone to fix this, are there any other ways?? The laptop dvd is three years old now, and have put up with it for this long, but thought their might be someone out there who knows what to do about this problem.Yes I could trade it and upgrade but money issues are the problem, yes i could sell it but who going to buy old laptop with faulty dvd player, and I kinda like my laptop. I have an Asus PRO31E Series and I cant change my regional codes. I put in an imported DVD and it asked me to change it to the correct zone to allow it to play. So I did. Now I cant change it back and NOTHING will play. Not my VLC player, not my Windows Media, nothing!! What do I do?

Hi, if your DVD-ROM drive is region-free, windows saves the region change setting, if you completely erase the hard drive and reinstall, windows will give you another 5 chances of region change.
If your DVD Drive isn't region-free, it saves in a internal EEPROM memory the region changes done and the remaining's, if all permitted region changes are used, the DVD Drive will lock to the last setting. This is near impossible to unlock.

This could be a firmware issue or glitch. Follow the link bellow for a list of all the drivers for your machine. Download and run/install the firmware for you particular DVD drive, and you might also do the bios as well. Be sure to save the download to the desktop, and close out the internet before running/installing. This will ensure a clean install. If this doesn't clear it up, then it mat be a faulty reader board inside the DVD drive.

Try this program. It works well but isn't free anymore so after trial expires you will need to purchase it.
Another program that can be used is DVD Ghost or the DVD Utilites that can be download free trial here.
All these programs will work with your drive.
