With a DVD ripping program like Mac the Ripper or Magic DVD Ripper you can remove the region coding on a disc and copy it to a new DVD. These run on Mac and PC respectively, and you will need a DVD burner in your computer as well.

Keep in mind that you can legally make a copy of a DVD IF you follow certain rules:

1. You MUST keep the original disc and packaging to legally own the movie. If you get rid of the original you must destroy all backup copies as well.
2. You MUST NOT have more than one copy at a time, but you may make a second if your first one fails.
3. You MUST NOT give or sell a copy of the image (digitally or on a disc) to anyone else, or post it to any file sharing service. This is piracy and you can be prosecuted.

Older model Toshiba SD 2200 dvd player won't play purchased 2nd season Game of Thrones


This DVD player is working with region numbers. If the DVD has another regionnumber than what is installed in your player you can't view it. Most of the time you get one chance to change the region number in the player, but you never can put it back to the old one.
I don't know if it is legal in your country, but for years when I got the same problem, because I bought a DVD in another country. I did copy it to my PC and burned the same DVD without a region code. I don't watch DVD's for years now, so I don't know if the region codes still exists.

I need to unlock a Toshiba DVD player/VCR Combo SDV395 to view DVDs' purchased in Francs


You can change the Region Code of you DVD player but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, then the DVD player will be stuck to a certain region.
Search in the Options menu and change the region code to one printed on the french dvd case. To watch DVDs from your region again you have to change the region once more. Watch for changes left.

No problem.

Here is what you need to know:

The regional code for the US is (1).
You can change your DVD Region code up to 5 times on your Mac.

Review the information on DVD Regional codes via this Apple Support link to change the region code:
DVD Region Codes - DVD Player

Let me know if this Apple data helps!

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.

DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

Region code


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.
