Hi! I have changed my DVD region code 4 times already (Powerbook 12" G4) I am in America at the moment and I would like to watch region 1 DVD's for a couple of months. Is there any way of just getting rid of the stupid region code question? It is driving me insane!!

Yes there is a solution (or several in reality).

Do a Google search using the following string:

(Brand name) (Model number) +"region free"

Yes that is "+"region free"", you need the plus symbol (no space) Quote symbol (the words) region free and a last Quote symbol.

This should bring up either Firmware solutions where you download and install a new version of your Firmware, or will offer the Codes to be entered (and how to do this) to make your unit Region Free. The latter will probably be found in forums, so do not skip over these.

Good luck.

Hi, I could not get it to work using the other ways, Also I am not sure if this might help I am in Australia region 4 and the below worked for me

(1) Make sure there's no disc in the system and turn it off. Turn the system on again and it will display a "no disc" message on your TV.

(2) Use the remote control: press the "PAUSE" button and then key in the code "314159"

(3) Your TV then displays a menu for choosing the desired region. Select "0" to make your unit an all region player.

(4) Press the "PAUSE" button again.

(5) Turn the system off and wait a few moments before restarting.

Mac dvd drive regency code locked


This is not a feature of the Mac - this is a feature of DVD-ROM drives and is part of the DVD standard.

DVD-ROM drives, once changed 5 times, can NOT be changed.

The only solution would be to purchase an external DVD drive, and set IT to region 2, and leave your internal one set to region 1.

The region settings are legal issues with the DVD standard - the 5-time limit is permanent, hardcoded, and unchangeable.

Brough DVD's from america. Wrong region for Australia. I have a Samsung DVD P181/XSA player. How can I play my dvd's. Is there a way to break the region code on my DVD player?? Thanks Sylvia ...


1. Make sure that there is no disc in the tray and switch on the player.
2. Cold start the player, by holding down the PLAY and STOP buttons on the player.
3. You should see a set of language options. Release the PLAY and STOP buttons.
4. Select your language.
5. Press REPEAT (do not confuse this with the A-B button) then the following codes for the required region the player is already set to (region you bought the player in) :

Region 1 - 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
Region 2 - 3, 8, 7, 6, 7
Region 3 - 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
Region 4 - 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
Region 5 - 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
Region 6 - 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

6. A code will appear, indicating the region setting of your player.
7. Press 0 for region-free, or 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, etc.
8. Press OPEN/CLOSE on the Player to open the disc tray. You may need to push the tray shut rather than use the player button, in order for the region not to be changed to 4 .
9. Press STANDBY (POWER) on the remote control to close the tray. Next time the player is turned on it will set to the region specified. If the player halts on the FBI Warnings, press Forward Search x2 or faster.

OR

<DVD> ; press DVD button
<0><0><0><0><0> ; enter 5 times 0
<repeat> ; press repeat button (careful, not <repeat A-B>)
<5 digit code> ; see below, depends on region the player is currently set to
<0 for region free, 1-6 for other region> ; select new region
<open> ; open tray
<open> ; close tray
Now power off/on

5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462

Note: reset player by powering down and simultaneously pressing <power> + <play> until display shows 'reset'.
