Theres no way to safely undo the region code....without crushing your firmware. Your safe bet is to go to www.versiontracker.com and under Mac OS, look for VNC. Its free runs well, and forgets regions....see it *** an alternative if you region is locked.


Hope this helped.

Changing dvd region codes


You can't change the DVD coding. That part is how the DVD is recorded. However, your Mac will play DVDs from another region. It just typically defaults to one region. I have deleted the DVD player software (and preferences files) before and reloaded it to play DVDs from another region. If you plan to regularly play DVDs from multiple regions, you might want to look for special DVD software that will read DVDs from multiple regions.

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.

Mac dvd drive regency code locked


This is not a feature of the Mac - this is a feature of DVD-ROM drives and is part of the DVD standard.

DVD-ROM drives, once changed 5 times, can NOT be changed.

The only solution would be to purchase an external DVD drive, and set IT to region 2, and leave your internal one set to region 1.

The region settings are legal issues with the DVD standard - the 5-time limit is permanent, hardcoded, and unchangeable.
