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:

Regards,
Chris

Dvd player will not play, DVD from the UK


You could use a program meant to dupe, or change, your DVD-ROM's region code. These are independent, third-party programs so don't trust everything you see. Read reviews; a simple Google search can aid you with that. "Change DVD Region"

Alternatively, you could possibly change the DVD region of your drive from within Windows. If you opt to do this (if you can), the region will need to be changed back for viewing US DVDs.

These instructions are for XP. For Vista, it shouldn't be too different.
-Go into DEVICE MANAGER double-click on your DVD drive (likely "D:") under the DVD/CD DEVICES tree
-The third tab of the Properties window should be DVD REGION
-Voila!

If you need to know how to get to DEVICE MANAGER:
-START menu --> CONTROL PANEL--> SYSTEM
-The HARDWARE tab has a link to the DEVICE MANAGER

Restoring Region Code


Open My Computer and right click on the DVD Drive and pick Properties. Then click Hardware tab. Then select your DVD Drive from the list and click the Properties button at the bottom.
Then click DVD Region tab at the top.
It should tell you how many more region changes are possible. If it says 0 then it is not possible.
