SOURCE: Changing the DVD Region code

Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other

SOURCE: I CANT CHANGE THE REGION ON MY DVD, although I have 1 change left

Try using a software called DVD Shrink to watch your DVDs on. But check if its legal to use in your respective areas.
You can see how many changes you have remaining by doing this.
"Right Click" on "My Computer" and select "Manage".
Select "Device Manager", expand your "DVD/CD-ROM drives", "Right Click" the drive model and select "Properties" and select tab called "DVD Region".
This will show you how many "Changes Remaining" you have and give you the ability to change the region (so long as you have available changes left).

Read this
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/archive/dvdregion.mspx
Some manufacturers fix a region code in the windows registry.
Also you may be able to upgrade your firmware
of your dvd drive. (it may or may not start region count again but worth a try if nothing else will work.)

also u cna try this

it is that now that it is fixed, it is fixed for good unless you "flash" the drive's frimware. Check out http://www.vcdhelp.com for extra firmware for some drives. OR

Try putting in a dvd which is not made for multiple formats (i.e. Region 1, 2, 3 etc.), for e.g. I put in a Australian comedy disc which is only made for region 4, it enabled me to change back to that region. Hope this helps. If you are having trouble finding whether a disc supports multiple regions just try experimenting with a dvd which you might think is local to your country.

or try this out ....

you have to insert the DVD you're trying to play first, then try and change the region. It this might work.
Hope that helps!


or check this out

To change the region code, you must use a DVD disc that supports CSS
(Content Scrambling System).

SOURCE: Wrong region code

How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also "patch" your DVD drives firmware, you find patched DVD drives firmwares here (freeware but it may be a bit tricky and "dangerous").

How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie(freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How do i make my dvd region change



With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times). To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.

  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel
  2. Double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.
  4. In Hardware click the Device Manager button.
  5. In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.
  6. This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the DVD drive you wish to change the region for.
  7. In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.
  8. Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.

My compaq laptop says i cant change the region


You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.

My pc dvd drive won't let me change region back


No its not a bug most DVD-ROM computer drives allow you 4 or 5 region changes first check your region code and number at DVD Region Info it will tell you region code Australia is 4 UK is 2 sand so one plus you region changes http://www.visualdomain.net/

I however do suggest removing your region code from your DVD-ROM using a region free firmwar or on your PC you can use http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm it is however a bit pricey the region 0 firmware hack would be better.

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


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

Changing the DVD Region code


New DVD-ROM drives come with a firmware level RPC-2 with hardware protection. RPC 2 drives have a 5 change limit on regions, once the counter gets to 0 your drive is permanently locked to the last region it was set to. Even if you reformat or move the drive to another system it will still be locked to the last region. There are ways to get around it, some models have resetting tools made by 3rd parties to reset the change limit back to 5 and some also have firmware patches to remove the region lock.

The first solution is free VideoLAN player: click here to download VideoLAN. 

The second solution is free Remote Selector tool: click here to download Remote Selector. Launch remselec22.exe file. Click Control tab. Choose Enabled, and check all options Region Free, Disable Macrovision, Disable User Prohibition Click Start Player button, and try to play your DVD

Finally Load another firmware for your DVD drive which disables the region code protection.
