    Hello, I've tried the solution you suggested but it's not working.
    I'm having trouble burning the .cue file because my lacie burner somehow is giving me error messages and I can 't burn the file through the Burn folder option on my Mac.

    If I could, I would attain a VCD of which I need for the upgrade.

    The Lacie problem is a another issue and needs to be rectified.
    Toast does not recognize this type of file (cue).

    Once I have the opportunity and solve the burning issues I will be able to move forward. See what happens.

    Thanks for the advice.
    It was a little tricky but everything worked out fine.
    I did follow the instructions.
    Now my player is multi-zoned BUT when it plays back NTSC, it's only available in black and white.
    This I presume is because my television is an older model and dates back to the seventies (RANK ARENA).
    If there's a way around this let me know.
    I do have the addition of region 2 of which I didn't have previously.
    Regards

Try using the firmware upgrade for the SD220E for the SD2500. This should work to get your toshiba to play other region dvds. Let me know if you have any problems with this and I would be glad to address any questions or concerns that you may have

good luck

How to unblock the region code of the portable dvd player Toshiba SD P91SKR?


Hello there, to my knowledge there is no way to unlock the region on this particular model dvd player. Most portable dvd players cannot change the region code unfortunately. I have double checked and there are no unlock codes for this model.

This is a link to a page that tells you how to unlock this player. It involves downloading a file then burning to CD which you then put in the player. Hope this helps.

Need to make my dvd player multi region


This is not a Toshiba problem.

Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.

Blame the movie and record companies.

Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.

It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.

Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on your TV anyway.

Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive, then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also, you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it yourself.
