It may happen that you need to change the region codes of your DVD drive/player/recorder in order to view a certain DVD.

Nowadays many video discs may are encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

Change the region code of your DVD drive

  • Start,
  • Right click on My Computer
  • In the device manager,
  • Go to the category CD/DVD
  • Right click on your player
  • Properties
  • DVD Region tab,
  • You only have to select the desired region.

Changing region is a limited to a number of times. When the number of changes remaining reaches zero, you can not change it, even reinstalling
