You can either buy a region free DVD player or you can get software to play the disk back on your PC.

That wont help. The "product" will give you four or five chances to change out the region.
The French Region code is here

Your product manual will tell you how to change it. But there is always a copyright limit.
If you install Anydvd from
it will strip out the region codes and play/copy the dvd on your product
There is a free trial period

What is the code to make LG DP522H DVD player region free (0)/ multi-region? (this replaces my question yesterday where I got the LG model wrong!)

Ok so here is how it was done.

Press the Pause button on your remote control. Using your remote control enter the code 3, 1, 4, 1, 5 and 9, Press the 0 button on your remote control for Region free, 1 for Region 1 or 2 for Region 2. Press the Pause button on your remote control. Power off your player and wait a few seconds. Power on your player
Press the Setup button on your remote control then, Step, Next, Up and Down, select the region of your choice or Bypass for region free, save and then Exit the menu.

Hi,MY ACER 4720 Dont play any DVD but playing cd /copying CD is fine.When i checked its property,Driver shows as CD ROM driver.i did not find any dvd driver.Could anyone help

The DVD player may be set to a Region that does not match the Region code on the DVDs.
To changethe 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 DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

I have the 5083 dvd player, but it only seems to play region 2 dvds. I've tried going through the menus, but it asks for a country code. The codes are two letters A-Z. I'm assuming that there's...

The Country Code is just related to the Subtitles etc and nothing to do with the Region.
Most DVD Players/Recorders are set to Play the Region of DVD from the Country they were purchased from. Only some are Region Free (will play DVDs from any Country) when purchased.

Some DVD Players/Recorders can be changed to Region Free by simply entering a code on the Remotes handset or by following instructions to enter a Service Menu and change it their.

Unfortunately yours can only be changed by updating the Firwmare which is a risky and difficult process even if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't advise anyone to try it without previous experience as you could render your DVD Player/Recorder useless.

I have an LG VCR/DVD unit model RC389H purchased in 2010 When I try to play a DVD from France (Region2) I get the message "Incorrect region code. Can't play back" There doesn't seem to be a...

Take a look at the back of the unit. You'll either have one of these: captainhawk1.gifcaptainhawk1_0.gif(You may have another number)
Or one of these: captainhawk1_1.gif (or the oblong version... I just couldn't find one of those)
If you've got one of those little globes with the number on the back of it, you have a region locked DVD player and what that means is that the seller is selling locked DVD players and using a hack to get into the system and change the region code. They just did a sloppy job. What caught my attention is the fact that this is PAL Dvd Player and you need a separate NTSC converter to play on use television. A true ALL Region DVD player would also have be able to play both PAL and NTSC without the need for a converter as it is built-in already.
DVD's are not only made with region codes they are also made based on the analog standard for the region they are sold in. The US uses NTSC, Europe uses the PAL standard and what that means is that it's a different technology to broadcast the signal onto the screen. The US has been using NTSC since the 1940's, I'm not really sure about PAL. Take a look the back of a US DVD case and you'll notice atthe bottom it will say NTSC.
Since ALL Region players are obviously more desirable and therefore a true ALL Region player would be more expensive, it has become a common practice for sellers to get the region locked-players from gray market sources in Asia and use hacks to make them ALL Region but as noted it still doesn't solve the issue of the analog standard so you ahve to get yourself a converter. Think about it: what would be the point of LG making an All Region player that couldn't broadcast both analog standards?
Now, if you do have a globe with an ALL on it, then you have a true all region player and shouldn't have an issue on an NTSC television, but on the other and, it wouldn't play Region 2, so you obviously have a problem. So, either you got completely scammed or you have a true ALL Region player that is defective. Either way, I'd return the thing.

If you're interested, here are some hacks for that particular machine:

Region free for RCA RTD160

Try to find out by looking at the menu of the dvd. play the DVD without a CD Rom in it then press stop and menu at the same time. It will let you select a region for it to play. But sometimes you can only do that with a different DVD players. so0me DVD players are only made to play on what you already have it on.
