Try using DVD43 or AnyDVD software which both bypass the region encoding/lock!

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:-

I need to change the region code from the US to the UK for my HP Pavillion dv2000 laptop. The hardware under properties says its a slimtype DVD ADS8A1H ATA device? I have already gone past the 5 allowed...


Hello,

If you have used the 5 allowed changes, then your device is locked at the last one. You may be able to unlock it so it works region free. There are tools on the internet that allow you to do this.

The free way is to just install videoLAN (VLC). If yo use videolan as your video player, it should play any dvd without needing to modify firmware or "hack".

If you want to try to modify your locked DVD region codes, a good place is www.videohelp.com. Here is the direct link to the regon page:

Chris

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.

DVD REGION LOCKED


To change this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Insert a DVD from the region you want set on your drive.
  2. Launch the DVD player software and click Play .
  3. If the DVD is from a different region than your current drive setting, a message will come up asking if you wish to change the region.
  4. In the Region Change window, you will see several circular buttons next to the regions. The ones that are highlighted white are the ones available on the current DVD you have inserted in the drive. Select one of these buttons and click OK .
  5. Your region code has been changed; you can now play the DVD.
