Question about LG GSA-H22N DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

DVD region Thanks for your answer, however the problem is that being the DVD burner in region 1 it will not open any DVD that is not in this region thus I cannot save files to convert with AnyDVD. Every time I try to open the DVD using Shrink a window appears stating that I must convert to whatever region I need. It also says that the opportunities of doing so are 0. This is why I need some kind of firmware or a code, I do not know what, that I can introduce to my player so it will become Region free

    Dear sir: I am running into another problem. A friend of mine asked me to copy one of his films in DVD. When I inserted the disc in the burner, it did not open. I tried several times with no luck. I then put it in my table DVD player and it opened OK. I tried again in the computer and no luck at all. Then I removed it and upon examining it very carefully, I discovered four really tiny dots near the center of the disk. Like four pinholes at the point where the disk starts. I imagine that this four tiny pinholes do not allow the disk to open in my computer, Am I right? Is there no way of watching or copying the disk for making a back-up? Thanks a lot!!

You miss-understood. AnyDvd copies directly from the DVD drive to the hard disk, and removes region info as it does. Then a backup DVD can be created from the image file. The image file can also be accessed by DVDShrink to alter the size to fit.

As far as 'regions' you are #$%*&@ed! Did you not see that you only have 5 chances to change the region? Once at 0 there is nothing further you can do, even reinstalling the OS will not give you more chances at region changes! You should not have needed to set any regions at all. Most LG models will burn any disc regardless of the regions. I have never yet set any region and mine burns fine. YOu may have to contact Microsoft for a solution, if there is one, good luck.

Dvd recorder won't play disc


your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

I have 2 lg DVD writers (i.e. GSA 4120B & GSA H10A).My Regions on both units (both on the same computer)are both set on '0'.Is it possible to make at least one of the units "REGION FREE" ?Thanks


for burning dvd try using a program SlySoft AnyDVD for veiwing try vlc media player. VLC is one of the free software and open source DVD players that ignores DVD region coding on RPC-1 firmware drives, making it a region free player. However, it does not do the same on RPC-2 firmware drives. If both are RPC-2 then you might have to try a program like DVD Region-Free 1.0

Does LG GGW-H20L Blu Ray Disc Rewriter supports in region 1 Hi Can the LG Blue ray burnner GGW-H20L region be open free code?


No it can't. DVD & Blu-Ray burners generally allow you to set the region a few times before it becomes disabled and set permanently, in case the computer is sold or moved to another region. But they will not allow you to make or play region-free discs.

Region free & Shrink


Found something that might work here^^ Try it and let me know.
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also "patch" your DVD drives firmware, you find patched DVD drives firmwares here (freeware but it may be a bit tricky and "dangerous").
Plz click on teh links^^

Changes regions


Do a Google search using the following string

(Brand Name) (Model Number) +"region free"

Include the + sign (no space) and the quotes, this should either bring up a Firmware download or will give the codes to make your unit region free. Don't forget to look in the forums as these are probably the best source for the codes.

Good luck.

Change Region


No, once you used all the opportunities to change, then you have to replace the Drive itself.
