    If the DVD Region has been changed for more than 5x it cannot be changed anymore. To do that you will have to flash the firmware of your DVD Rom. Bad News is manufacturers do not support this feature you will have to rely on 3rd party softwares to do it, i cannot recommend any coz the results are not guaranteed.

I have a DVD Region 1 but my computer is set to Region 2 (Middle East) Is there a download to solve this?


Yes there is but there is even a simpler method. Just follow this pictorial guide and if all goes well, you should be able to play disks from region 1:

Right click on your DVD drive and select Properties:

Click on the Hardware tab and double click on the your drives description:

If you did it right, a new Windows will pop-up. Select the Region tab and select your country from the list. Or you can select any country which says its in Region 1; doesn't matter. click OK:

Restart you PC if asked. Trying playing the DVD again.

Note that you can only change the Region a max of five times after which it will be locked to the last changed region PERMANENTLY. There are tools to bypass this, however. One such is Slysoft's AnyDVD.

Laptop dvd player stuck on region 1 need 4 for


Try changing the region by right clicking your DVD drive in explorer and select properties, go to hardware tab, select your DVD brand and type, click properties, go to DVD region, and change the region.. Just remember, any DVD only allowed to change the region for about 4 times, after that, you can't change the region anymore..

I am unable to change the dvd regional setting to australia (4)but the list says i have one change left


Do you know where to change the region setting?
If not go to the Device Manager - click on DVD/CD-ROM Driver - then right click on your DVD drive, and click on Properties then DVD Region. You can change your region you require.
If you cannot change the region and the region is locked or you have run out of changes, you can install Region Free software on your computer that allows you to play DVDs from any region.
There may be freeware available on the Internet (do a Google search), but I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com
it costs a few dollars but I have no problems with it, my DVD drive is locked on Region 1.
There are firmware upgrades available for DVD drives that make them region free, but if you make a mistake with the wrong firmware update then your DVD drive is now a piece of junk.

Unlocking DVD rom to multi-region TS-L632D


You can change the DVD region four times only, the fourth change will lock on that region permanently.
There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.

The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

Need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region free locked on o1


You can only change the region code up to 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 any region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.
