To change the 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 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 DVDs 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 (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Tried to play 'alligator Dundee" on DVD, but disk


It all depends on the region coding of your player and the code on each disc.

For example, if the DVD region code is 1, and the player is region 4, the disc will not be compatible. The same can be said of region 4 discs in a player specifically intended as a region 1.

Region-free discs (or '0') should work with this player. It sounds like a restriction from region coding between the discs and the player. There isn't much you can do except use discs marked 'region 0' or 'ALL' (playable worldwide), or those which match the code on your player. Check your disc's cover for region code information (if any).

I do not recommend region hacks as these may damage your player.

I haven't heard of Alligator Dundee, but after some reading up on it, it appears to be a parody of Crocodile Dundee, which was more popular.

What does check regional code mean?


It means your DVD player has a different region code to the disc you are attemting to play.

DVD's and most DVD players have a region code corresponding to the country/region in which they were purchased. The region code printed on the disc must match the region code of the player, usualy found on the rear of the unit or in the manual. Only players set to code 0 or 9 are able to play all regions, a setting of 1- 6 is most common. 1 = USA 2 = Europe etc.

It is often possible to set your player to code 0 or 9 enabeling you view all region DVD's.

My dvd keeps opening and I am unable to play disc


Clean smudges and fingerprints off of disc with microfiber rag and a little water.  Try again.  Your disc will not play if it is heavily scratched.  Your disc will not play if the region code on the back of the DVD case does not match the region code of the back of your DVD player or look in your manual.  The DVD should play on everything if it is region 0.  Try other DVDs to isolate if it is the DVD disc or the player.  Go to the box store and get you the DVD optical laser lens cleaning kit for cheap and give that a shot.  If that don't work, then throw this piece of sh.t away and go on e-bay and get you a region free DVD player that will play all discs.

Mac book pro is currently locked to region 1,


Home Index DVD Region Codes

In order for you to view a DVD's content, the region code on the DVD and the region code for DVD Player must be the same. Your DVD drive is automatically set to a region code the first time you play a coded DVD. If the region code for a DVD does not match the current region code for DVD Player, a dialog appears for you to change the code for DVD Player.
IMPORTANT: You can set the region code for DVD Player only five times (including the original setting). The fifth time you change the code, it will be permanently set. The following map and table indicate the code for the various regions. Some DVD discs can be played in any region, and are sometimes referred to as having region code 0. These discs can be played regardless of the region to which DVD Player is set.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??
