How to change a Region Code on DVD

I Boght a Sony Vaio model VGN-CR231E in US, but I live in Brazil.

The problem is that when I tried to change the region code from 1 to 4, that's the code for Brazil, the system asks me about some media that I don't have. and I can't change the region.

Does somebody know how I can fix it ?

Thanks

Change region code after reached limit


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 Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Problem in Sony Vaio VGN-CR320E´s motheboard


would you have been happier if you had a 3-year warranty on your machine? I suggest you try to compare between buying a new motherboard to buying a whole new notebook...the latter usually is more reasonable. Again, get an extended warranty

Try changing the system to whatever you use in brazil. In the us for example we use ntsc. Go to the menu, and see if its there. If not then there is nothing you can really do because diffrent system use a diffrent frequency altogether.

Repair or replace Matshita UJ-840D drive.


The region code can only be changed up to 4 times and after the 4th change it locks onto that region.
You may be able to update the firmware to make the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake then you have a piece of junk.
The best solution :-
You can install software that defeats the region code, there may be some free programs on the Internet but I use RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com it is not expensive.

Dvd stuck on zone 1 when i am a zone 4


You can only change the region code 4 times and on the fourth time it locks on that region and you cannot change it again.
You can upgrade the firmware on your DVD drive to make it region free (if available for your model DVD), but if you install or make a mistake then your DVD drive will be a piece of junk.
The best solution is to run a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com, it cost a few dollars and you get free updates forever, I also use their DVD copy program DVD FAB Gold, great software also free upgrades forever.
