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.

Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".

How can I unlock dvd region to my DELL laptop dvd? this is a Hatachi-LG dvd model GSA-T21n. Do you know which unlock code I have to use, where I can download it and I can use it? Thank you


Hi there!

You have 5 tries to set dvd region for your dvd rom. You can access it by going to "Computer" and right-clicking the dvd/rw drive then select properties. Select dvd region tab and select country of operation.

Hope it helps!

I have windows vista the dvd-rw that i burn does not play on dvd players


Not all DVD players will play rewritable DVD disks. Check for compatibility. Also, burned DVD's need to be "finalized" and the region code of the burner must match the player. Check your software docs for steps to finalize and setting your region code. If you are in the U.S. your region code is 1.

DVD Region Locked to Region 3


Hi there.
You only get 5 turns to change the region code on a slimline DVD/RW, once its locked to a region thats it, the only way to get them five goes back again is to flash the firmware on the DVD/RW.
You will need to jot down the make and model of the slimline DVD and see if there is a firmware update for it.
NOTE: Flashing firmware with the wrong version can damage the DVD and render it useless.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Unlocking DVD rom to multi-region TS-L632D


You can change the DVD region four times only, the fourth change will lock on that region permanently.
There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.

The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

Hi i want to unlock my laptop to any region, can you help


PC DVD drives can have the region code changed 5 times only.
Whatever region you set it to on the last available change will be the units permanent region from then on!!!

Any hardware modification to the unit to 'unlock' it is a violation of many countries laws and absolutely unlawful in the U.S..

The region codes are there to protect the copyrights of the media producers and ensure the units proper operation with inserted media.
