How to remove regions for sony ad7200a drive as firmware update does not work.


If the firmware update cannot make the DVD player region free, and you cannot change the Region code on the DVD drive then you can install a Region Free software which will allow you to play DVDs from any region. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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 http://www.visualdomain.net/

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

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work


You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.

Best wishes
