    Chnge region of laptop dvd player


    The dvd player of my laptop works fine for dvds in U.S, but I understand you can change the format of this player for a European - zone 2 format. How do you change to that format?

    :)

  2. DVD region on media player with DVD driver and windows DVD player

    Hi Keith

    Windows Media Player doesn't even have DVD Playback support.

    Try doing it through Device Manager

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Device Manager

    Click "DVD/CD-ROM drives" to view a list of your installed disk drives.

    Right-click your DVD drive and click "Properties" to open its Properties dialog box. Click the box's "DVD Region" tab to open a list of countries.

    Scroll to and select "United States" in the countries list and then click "OK" to change your drive's region, enabling Windows Media Player to play Region One DVDs.

  3. DVD player settings - region selection & # of changes limitation


    dvd region killer only works if your dvd player is region free,old players are not region free,mine isn't. On the region killer website.the Top Alternative is dvd shrink.To reduce a dual layer dvd to fit on a single layer,then dvd shrink is an unbeatable sledgehammer.

    A dvd player was the required method.

    Chnge region of laptop dvd player

    DVD player settings - region selection & # of changes limitation


    Hello,

    Under the properties of my dvd player PLDS DVD-RW DH16AESH

    I reside in the US and currently there is no region selected.

    Under properties > Region there are a couple of paragraphs with information that some dvd's require the dvd player to be set for a specific region for a dvd to be played and that the region can be changed a maximum number of 5 times afterwhich will be stuck on that region and no more changes to regions can be made even when re-installing a fresh copy of Windows 10.

    I'm looking at a Stephan Segal series where I watched series 1 from Netflix and haven't been able to find series 2 streamed online. So after looking around found series 2 on DVD being sold on Amazon, however there is a warning about requiring a region 2 dvd player in order to play.

    I don't know anything about dvd regions as I've only rented dvds where region wasn't an issue.

    I have an older Sony DVD player purchased new over 10 years ago that rarely used any more. Model dvp-ns55p that has no region code on the back. I don't recall it having any region settings from it's setup menu. I'll connect it to the monitor to see if there are any region settings.

    If no region settings does this mean the Sony Player is multi-region?

    Should I be wary of changing the region of the dvd player installed under Windows 10?
