You cannot change the region on a game system or DVD player because it is built int the hardware. In order to play a different region dvd you would have to get a DVD player or game system that was originally sold (as new) from the country associated with that region code. You can get a dvd copy without region code so that you could play it on your dvd player,

U need to decrypt your Blu-ray disc. Try this tool(http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper/) which can decrypt and rip the m2ts files off from disc. Then u can play the m2ts files on your player. And there is no quality loss during conversion.

How do I unlock the dvd region only


Hardware solution: The easiest way to play different regions DVD on Mac is to buy a region-free player, however, if you've already got a nice DVD player, you can use hacks to turn off the region code in your DVD player. Note that hacking your DVD player region code is a violation of the DMCA and this is ******* in the United States.
Software solution: If you live in the United States and you want a solution that will work on any DVD player but not to hack your DVD player, another best solution for you is to make a copy of the movie, although backing up copies of DVD is currently ******* in the United States, it will become available in the future. Then what you need to do is to using one of the popular ripping programs on the market, here, I would like to suggest you Free DVDAid, which enables you to make a 1:1 copy of the original DVD disc without quality loss with all audio streams and subtitle tracks well preserved. You will get a DVD that works that can work in any DVD player.

Tip

Playing DVDs from other Regions


To change the 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 DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is (DVD-Region Free) now updated replacement program is Passkey for DVD and for Blu-ray discs Passkey for Blu-ray.

Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

DVD CD's will not play in English other languages OK, also other DVD's do work but most don't. I am stumped tried everything, Menu butttons on DVD, TV (Sony) and CD's will not work on English #1 channel...


It is possible that someone has changed the region that the DVD player is in. If the menu is not in English you will need to translate the language to get it back to English in the language selection. Find the region selection in the menu and change to the proper region, this should fix the issue since some DVD work, they probably have a Region code of 0. Cheers.

Need To Unlock My Sony BDP-S500 To Play Imported DVDS And BLU-RAY


I don't think that it is illegal to change the region of a DVD player as a DVD drive in a computer can be changed easily up to 5 times before they are locked on one region. Sony Blu-Ray players at this point don't have a hack code and they have to have a hardware mod to play both region A and B Blu-Ray discs. There are inexpensive Phillips DVD players that are region free or they have an easy method to make them region unlocked. I don't know of any Blu-Ray players that have that feature, but you can get a N. American region coded player that will play both PAL and NTSC, but you will have to use a voltage converter as N America is 120V 60Hz and Europe is 220-240 @ 50hz.
The other option is to get a Blu-Ray/DVD RW drive for your computer and set it as a region 1drive and connect it to the TV for playing US discs.
There are other things you can do but those ARE illegal or questionable and I can't post them here.

Best of luck
