Theres a few things you can do here.If you have your instalation disk you can perform repair even though theres nothing to repair your cd will be set to 0.the only time you have a region code set is if some one has set it previously.Dont suppose you wanna do that .You could check your model of cd/dvd player in system information then get the firmware of the net.just type in search engine model of drive followed by firmware.by installing firmware it will auto set drive to 0 (any region)...
You can also download a program(free)called "any dvd" this program enable you to play any region dvds.

Play my dvd's


The Region setting maybe incorrect.
To change the 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 DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blueray that allows you to play Bluerays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Im not able to play my dvd when i insert the dvd in the dvd drive


Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs and CDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

There are firnware updates to change DVDs to region free, if you are not carefull you can screw up your DVD drive.
Suggest you install a program to allow you to play any DVDs regardless of which region the DVDs were created for.
