How to bypass DVD region code protection ?

As we've said, a lot of newer drives are RPC-2 drives these days. Some of these drives don't allow raw access to the drive until the drive firmware has done a regioncheck. But some RPC-2 drives DO allow raw access, so in some cases it is quite possible to use a special software to bypass the protection:

The first solution is free VideoLAN player: click here to download VideoLAN. It might take a long time to initialize DVD. So just pop the disc in your drive and try it out, while you get a coffee.

The second solution is free Remote Selector tool: click here to download Remote Selector. Launch remselec22.exe file. Click Control tab. Choose Enabled, and check all options Region Free, Disable Macrovision, Disable User Prohibition as shown below:

Click Start Player button, and try to play your DVD.



How to change DVD region ?

The region can only be changed five times, before its set permanently.

In WinDVD: if a DVD from a region different than the default one is tried to be played, the dialog box for changing the DVD region code should appear. If that dialog box do not appear, check the region code set in the software:
Click Start, All Programs, Intervideo Win DVD, and Intervideo Win DVD.
Right-click the Win DVD window and select Setup or Properties.
Click the Region tab and check the region code selected.
If there is a 0 in the Changes Until Permanent field, the DVD region code will not be able to be changed again.
If a number from 1 to 4 appears in the Changes Until Permanent field, add a mark in the checkbox of the desired region and click OK. The new region will be set up.

In PowerDVD: the first time you insert a DVD title, to be played on PowerDVD, a small dialogue box will appear. It will set the region code to match that of the DVD title you wish to play. After this the program will be set. However, if you have a region free DVD-ROM drive, you have the option of playing DVD titles from different regions. PowerDVD will allow you to change the region code setting up to five times, and then it will be locked on the region you have listed on your fifth and last change. At that point you will only be allowed to watch DVD titles from that region. To change the region code, from the original setting, just insert the DVD title in your DVD-ROM drive and run PowerDVD. When the software recognizes that the disc is from a different region than what was previously set, a dialogue box will appear. For this example, the Current Region is Region 1. After changing from one region to another, I will have four changes left. The program detected the disc I inserted was from Region 2, so it selected this option. Once I click OK the Current Region will be changed to Region 2 and the DVD title will play.



How to make DVD-ROM region free ?

If your drive is locked, DVD doesn't play and you can't change region code or bypass protection using described methods, then the last & only working solution is to "patch" your DVD-ROM drive, and replace hardware region code protection mechanism. It's a dangerous method, which can be used only by PC professionals.

If you live in the USA or Canada (R1) then you most likely won't need the ability to play DVDs from other regions, unless you are interested in some of the rare titles that are out in Europe (R2) but not in the USA. If you live in Europe and you prefer to watch the movies in English then most likely you have to flash your firmware (in order to buy American DVDs).

Load another firmware which disables the region code protection. This is ONLY for advanced users!

Step 1. If you're unsure about the type of the drive I suggest you run driveinfo.
Download DriveInfo program from this page: http://www.remoteselector.com/driveinfo.htm

In case of ASPI error you have to install forceaspi first. Here's download link with instructions on how to install it: http://force_aspi_18.w.interia.pl/. After installing forceaspi you have to reboot your machine. Driveinfo will show you the type of your DVD drive as well as the current firmware, and whether or not the drive is regionfree. If driveinfo tells you the drive has no region protection of course you don't have to do anything.

Step 2. After you determine the type of your firmware you should download _EXACT_ version of patched firmware. Go here: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php and check if there's an updated firmware for your type of DVD drive. This step is really crucial! Double or triple check that you have the right firmware, otherwise your drive might not work after flashing anymore (and unfortunately there are flash programs that allow you to load the wrong firmware). Bad flashing could destroy your drive definitively. Read carefully the installation notes of your firmware before you upgrade. The Firmware Page and the drive manufacturer can't be responsible. AND REMEMBER: This is at your own risk.

Step 3. After you've downloaded the right firmware you'll have to create a Windows bootdisk. You can format a disk and check "copy system files" and you'll get a working bootdisk. Then copy the flasher program and the firmware to the disc as well. Then reboot your pc and change the boot drive order if necessary so that your pc boots from the disk drive. Since every BIOS looks different I can't tell you where to change the boot order. Please refer to the manual of your mainboard / pc or call customer support.

Step 4. After rebooting run the flasher. Then the program will search for a DVD-ROM and ask you if you want to flash. Type yes, wait until the program has finished, then reboot your pc. Once back in Windows run driveinfo again. If everything has gone as it's supposed to that's what you're supposed to get. Enjoy.. you've just beaten the DVD-ROM Hardware region-protection system.

NOTE: Before you buy a DVD-ROM make sure that there's RPC-1 firmware for it on this site: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php.

You should be aware that in some cases the warranty might become void if you mess around with your drive on your own. Here are additional useful tips: The DVD-ROM Firmware Flashing FAQ

From Wiki:

"The immediate successor to the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DSi, is region-locked, but only in terms of its downloadable games. Physical DS game carts will play on it regardless of region of origin (DSi-only and even DSi-enhanced games are region-locked though)."

REGION CODE


I have managed to find the menu with the region code. Its the same as the hack for the Acoustic Solutions DVD237.

Without a DVD in the player
1). Press Setup
2). Enter 1389

Now at this point the menu appears and the hack says the arrow keys should allow you to change the region code but doesn't on my machine.

Unlocking Mikomi DS-306 Dvd player


Partial solution...

Without a DVD in the player - eject the tray

1). Press Setup ensure you are showing 'General' tab
2). Enter 1389

At this point a list comes up with all sorts of info. At the bottom is Region Code 2. But I'm stumped as to how to change it. I've tried all different key combinations I can think of. On other Mikomi players except the ds-306a (the Argos is a rebadged Mikomi ds-306a)
you can then use the up or down arrows and cycle throw the region nunbers until you get to region 0. Odd that it doesn't seem to work on ds-306a. Perhaps someone else can figure the final steps out
