just pay attention to the times you attempt to change your region you can do it 5 times only so if you try 4 times and on your 5th attempt you use a japanese movie you would get stuck with their region and would be able to play Japanese movies only (from that region)

SOURCE: Unlocking my region code

Open My Computer, right click the DVD icon and select properties,
click hardware tab at the top.
Select your DVD player from the list, click the Properties button, and then the DVD Region tab. Select the Country you want to change the region code to and click OK.
It should tell you how many changes you are allowed. When you have used them all it stays locked at the last one you chose.

Have NEC 3550A DVD/rw. re-installed windows XP professional & all else.. DVD will not recognize most dvd discs.Got drivers from NEC.. still problem


Go to:
1. start > run > devmgmt.msc
2. Under DVD/CD Rom drives make sure it's installed (Uninstalled = Yellow icon)
If all drivers are applied correctly this could be a problem with the DVD Region Settings.
Go to:
1. start > run > devmgmt.msc
2. expand
3. find the device
4. right click > properties
5. go to dvd region tab
6. select the desired region
Warning: some drives only allow you to change it up to 5 or 4 times so be careful!

Our Sony DVD player will not playimported DVDs from the UStates


1) those DVDs are coded in Region 1(Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda)
you will have to change the region code on the dvd-rom to region 1

2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)

3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned

windows xp/2000/98/me
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software

Changes regions


Do a Google search using the following string

(Brand Name) (Model Number) +"region free"

Include the + sign (no space) and the quotes, this should either bring up a Firmware download or will give the codes to make your unit region free. Don't forget to look in the forums as these are probably the best source for the codes.

Good luck.

Change Region


No, once you used all the opportunities to change, then you have to replace the Drive itself.
