DVD Region Code: change on Mac?

PowerBook says can't be done. Also, my Intel MacBook says OK, but only 3 more times. Can they be unlocked simply?

Normally, if you want to change the region code on the device, it can be changed for quite limited times. If you want to play the region-locked DVD, you can just need to download a piece of region free player software without changing the region code constantly.

I accidentally set my mac 5.2 dvd drive region to 6 and its suppose to be 1. i know you can change it at least 5x but what is the step by step of changing the region?


Easiest way is to put in a region DVD you want to switch to, and DVD Player will prompt you to change. Don't worry it will warn you that you have x number of changes before it becomes permanent.

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.

Hi Alison,
if you,ve exceeded the limited amount of changes, then you can,t make any more changes.
your only hope is to find a program such as CSS region free.
install this on the computer, which should allow you to play all region dvds.
Hope this helps :)
