Question about Televison & Video
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/
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.
Google for the 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.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung DVD-VR370
By what I have researched the vr370 doesn't have much information on it by way of unlocking the system...I have the vr375 which is the modle able to record BOTH dvd and vcr formats. I changed my region 4 player a year ago, but had to have it repaired and lost the setting. I have, however, found what I used online, and it is now playing my region 1 discs again!
1/Turn machine on without disc inside
2/Press menu button
3/Enter your current region code (See below for list)
4/confirmation of the current 'region area number' will appear in the upper right corner of the TV screen (some players)
5/Press 9 to change the region number to multi-regional
6/Turn machine off
R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767 or, 5 7 5 3 8
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
I hope this helps :)
