The best way is to download VLC from here (free!)
It plays all movies and DVDs regardless of area.

Hi there

Unfortunately there isn't a code fore this, you can only play R1 DVD's on an R1 DVD Player and you can only play R2 DVD's on a R2 DVD Player. You can find DVD's that are R2, that is all you can do.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

DVDs are encoded with a "Region Code" to allow studios to control release dates around the world. Hong Kong Region Code is 3, UK is 2. Your player will not play back Region 2 DVDs that you are purchasing or renting in UK. It will work fine with Region Code 3 DVDs I would bet.

Sorry to deliver the bad news.

I want my Dell laptop to be able to play dvds from any region, its currently locked on the UK region.


Hi, you will have to hack your firmaware of your dvd rom.There are software out there but may or may not work.
Have you tried - VLC Media Player on VideoLan.org.

Give that a try first before you contemplate on doing any firmware hacking.

I hope this helps.

Wont play DVD movie


I have seen this before with some rental DVDs. If you can play the other discs that you have without problem, then the issue is with this disc. Whether or not it is actually a region 2 discs or if it is just defective would be debateable but moot.

If you have the same problem with all of your discs, then the problem is in the set. There just might be a firmware upgrade available for this set to correct that problem, if it is not the disc itself. Contact customer service at 800-631-3811 and they should be able to help with a firmware issue.

HI,
it depends on whether the drive is multi-region ?
Some drives are region Set, i.e Region 1 ( NTSC-USA )
Region 2 ( UK PAL )
Most Players Are Region Set, To the country they are purchased in, you can sometimes set the player to become, multi-region, via various buttons on the remote or by the front panel.
I offer a service to unlock 99% of DVD Players, to play all or many regions.
We do have a charge for this Service.
Many Thanks mike @ Compurepair.

Playing dvds in other regions


The region code is fixed by the manufacturer and you will not find help from them to change it. However there are ways of doing it, go to the web site below and look in the left hand panel for "multi-region"............. http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/reviews/ChannelReviews.asp
