Re: DVD player's region problem

DVD Players sold in the United States have a limit of 5 changes. The number of times you change regions is stored on the DVD player. Now you must buy a new DVD player, or go underground to find illegitimate ways around problem. Good luck.

Re: DVD player's region problem

Thank you! I found a DVD Genie, called DVD region +´CSS free. But it didnt work even they clain a 30 days free trial, The real function for change region function is not activated. Of course I am not sure that the software really solve the problem because my DVD player software is cDVDplay which is not adddressed in their insturction, but it also say they can manage all the DVD region free.

Re: DVD player's region problem

By flashing the firmware of the DVD drive, you will have a chance to change the DVD region settings again for another 5 times. Please chose the appropriate DVD firmware.

You check the link below:

If you are luck enough!!! You will find your DVD drive listed in the above link.

I've got the same problem. I've only changed it once and it didn't warn me I was making a last change (bastards)! Have you had any other luck?
