Is there a region free code for Toshiba bdx 2400?
When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia
Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea
Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Use Google to find these programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.
Region codes are a legacy from the film makers, who only allowed the DVD format after the manufacturers promised the content could be made, so not everyone in the world could play one disk (copy protection)
No commercial player is made without region limitations.
