My laptop won't play region 1 dvds, I bought the laptop in the uk and now moved to canada, can anybody please assist me


From Control Panel, click System, Device Manager, click + beside DVD Drive, right click you drive and select properties, DVD Region Tab, and change Region to Canada. You can only chnage this 5 times until it locks on the last change. Look into a program called AnyDVD as it will play Region Free.

My dvd region is locked and I need to change it. How?


To change the Region code on your 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 DVD 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 that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

I Live in Peru and have only one region change left. SInce I work with international staff we have many dvd's from all over the wold. Can I dismantle the region code on the quicktime player?


Hi There,

I think the easiest way is to use either 'DVD Region Killer' (free) or alternatively, 'DVD Region-Free' (trialware). Both are software solutions meaning you don't need to keep switching the region on your DVD drive.

Region Codes


You could change the Region Code of your DVD back & forth, but that will only work a limited number of times (usually 4). Or else you can pick up an external DVD drive, configure your internal DVD for either Region 1 or Region 2, and configure the external device for the other region.

DVD Player region coding changes


You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

Restoring Region Code


Open My Computer and right click on the DVD Drive and pick Properties. Then click Hardware tab. Then select your DVD Drive from the list and click the Properties button at the bottom.
Then click DVD Region tab at the top.
It should tell you how many more region changes are possible. If it says 0 then it is not possible.

Cant play a dvd on laptop hp pavilion dv4000


I assume it will not play Store bought or rental dvd's.

Try buying a cleaning disc and see if that helps. Other than that the drive would need taken apart and cleaned to see if that fixes it.

It could also be an electronic failure, in which case it would be cheaper to replace the drive.

Hope that helps...
