One you have run out of changes then you may be able to upgrade the firmware to make the player Region Free, but if you make a mistake the phe player is a piece of junk.
The best solution is use a region free software, please click on this link for region free programs :-

Hi,MY ACER 4720 Dont play any DVD but playing cd /copying CD is fine.When i checked its property,Driver shows as CD ROM driver.i did not find any dvd driver.Could anyone help


The DVD player may be set to a Region that does not match the Region code on the DVDs.
To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

DVD drive ''Free'' Region code does not play Region 1 DVD


You cannot see region 1 movies unless you change the region code, its designed this way as an anti piracy measure.

Dvd player will not play, DVD from the UK


You could use a program meant to dupe, or change, your DVD-ROM's region code. These are independent, third-party programs so don't trust everything you see. Read reviews; a simple Google search can aid you with that. "Change DVD Region"

Alternatively, you could possibly change the DVD region of your drive from within Windows. If you opt to do this (if you can), the region will need to be changed back for viewing US DVDs.

These instructions are for XP. For Vista, it shouldn't be too different.
-Go into DEVICE MANAGER double-click on your DVD drive (likely "D:") under the DVD/CD DEVICES tree
-The third tab of the Properties window should be DVD REGION
-Voila!

If you need to know how to get to DEVICE MANAGER:
-START menu --> CONTROL PANEL--> SYSTEM
-The HARDWARE tab has a link to the DEVICE MANAGER

Got acer aspire notebook with combodrive.it plays all dvds except all ntsc hindi songs dvd.it does not even recognize a dvd in drive.


if you want to play any of the thousands of DVDs imported from any of the other FOUR REGIONS? You need to make your DVD player (or your Windows PC or Mac) REGION FREE, try download region-free software to unlock your DVD player, and make it can play ntsc hindi songs.

Good luck!

Region setting on Acer Aspire 8920


Older DVD drives use RPC-1 firmware, which means the drive allows DVDs from any region to play. Newer drives use RPC-2 firmware, which enforces the DVD region coding at the hardware level. These drives can often be reflashed with hacked or Australia and New Zealand (hardware region coding prohibited by law in these countries) RPC-1 firmware, effectively making the drive region-free. However, this usually voids the warranty and can render the drive inoperable if something goes wrong... better contact your laptop manufacturer regarding this
