Samsung cddvdw sh-s222a region code crack


With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times).


To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.

Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel

Double-click the System icon.


In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.

In Hardware click the Device Manager button.


In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.

This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the


DVD drive you wish to change the region for.

In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.


Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.

Reads cd but not dvd


If this DVD drive does not read DVDs, the Region setting may not be configured for your DVDs.
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 bought my dvd player from Malaysia but I am using it in Middle East where I am currently residing. Initially, we are able to play all dvds (which we bought original) but suddenly, it kept popping a...


Are you using WMP or any third party players to play the dvds ?

I suggest you to check if the DVD region code is set to one (US) or not. If not, change it to one.

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

How do I change my DVD region?

DVD movies are encoded for different world regions, and your DVD-ROM drive must be configured for the appropriate region in order to play the DVD.

If you have DVD-decoder software installed on your computer, you can usually change the DVD region setting in the DVD decoder program. Follow the instructions in the program's Help file for changing the DVD region setting.

If you have a software or a hardware DVD decoder installed on your computer, you can use Device Manager to change the DVD region setting in your DVD-ROM configuration:

1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.

3. In the list of devices, double-click DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the DVD drive for which you want to change region settings, and then click Properties.

4. On the DVD Region tab, make the desired changes.

You must be logged on as an administrator or be a member of the Administrators group in order to change the DVD region.

Note that the DVD region for most DVD-ROMs can only be changed up to five times, and the number of changes still available is located on the DVD Region tab. If the tab shows that you can only change the setting one more time (Changes remaining = 1), you won't be able to play DVDs that use a DVD region that is different from your last selection. If you run out of opportunities to change the setting (Changes remaining = 0), contact your DVD-ROM's manufacturer to reset this value.

Also install DVD decoder as an issue with codec or DVD decoder could even cause the issue with DVD region code.

DVD-RAW does not read DVD. It is unable to find a DVD. Is it DVD problem or player problem?


I think I've just answered this question :-

It won't be a driver problem, DVD drives are generic, it will be either the drive has a problem, the dvd has a problem or your media player has a problem

1) Drive issue - does it player other dvd's - if yes, your drive is ok, if now you have a drive problem, try using a CD lens cleaner or a blast of canned air to clean the lens.

2) Disk issue, if just one disk doesn't play, then its a disk issue or data issue. Assuming the disk is clean and not scratched. Does the Disk have the correct country coding for your region. If not then you have to change the region setting on your DVD player

RMB My computer - Manage - Device manager - Optical drive - Properties - Regional settings.
Bear in mind most DVD player will only allow about 5 changes.

3) Media player, your current media player may not have the correct codecs to decodes the video files on this disk. Go to filehippo.com download and install VLC media player. This will play about anything and its free.

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

MY XV-N352S REFUSES TO PLAY DVD. IT REQUESTS I CHECK THE REGIONAL CODE. ANY SOLUTION? KIMANI NAIROBI KENYA


Hello kimani
My first thought is that you have the wrong region code set in the device manager for your DVD as you probably know dvd's come in region deffinitions 1 for europe and 2 for the americas and suchlike .
Goto Control panel select device manager
select dvd players and then properties ( you do this by right clicking on dvd player or it may give you a property box to click on . ) then select region usually you have 5 chances to set your region before the computer locks you out of any change . change the region to the one for your area i thnk it's region 5 for Kenya and save and close device manager .
If dvd still refuses to play reinstall a player program like powerdvd or windvd to get the drivers running again . ..regards Vortash

Error message when reading DVD


Try changing the region setting to region free.

1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray.

2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet.

3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys,
simultaneously on the player and not the remote control.

4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display)

5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys.

6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.

7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.

8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.

9. Press Enter on the player.

10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds.

11. Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting, you may have to hard select the appropriate region.

Good Luck. Let me know if it works
