I am looking for multi zone crack for Pioneer BDC-TD04 (Sony Vaio laptop) Blu Ray drive, suggestions?


DVD REGION FREE & BLUE-RAY REGION FREE
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 (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Im not able to play my dvd when i insert the dvd in the dvd drive


Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs and CDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.
For details on making your DVD player region free, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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!

DVD Player region coding changes


You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

For my dvd rom region


Region Code is concidered when you play any DVD movie directly from the Drive.

Like you insert any Video DVD in the Drive and right click on it and play directly where the Region Code comes into Picture.

You will be able to change the video code 4 times to use Video DVDs of different regions. However, the fifth time, what ever the DVD you use, the Drive will be locked to that region.

We need to check whether your Notebook is able to detected the DVD Drive or not.

Follow the steps listed below to check it :

Insert any DVD which you used earlier like a Data Disk or Video Disk in the DVD Drive of the Notebook and close the tray.

Now, go to My Computer and right click on the DVD Drive of the Notebook and select Open or Explore.

If you are able to see the content of the DVD / CD, the Notebook is able to detect DVDs.

I recommend you to copy the video files in the DVD into the Hard Drive and play them since this will reduce the noise generated by the DVD Drive while playing video from DVD and also its life time will be increased.

You need to copy the Video_ts folder which contains the video files in Video DVDs.

Hope this helps.
