    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 have been able to find any region settings from it's setup menu.

    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?

    :)

  3. Can U change region code on dvd with software ?

    hi all,
    is there any software out there that will let me copy a region 1 dvd movie onto my pc and then make so i can copy it back onto a blank dvd to work in my region 2 blu-ray player ?
    i have about 15 region 1 dvd's from when i had my multi region dvd player but since changing to my blu-ray player its not multi region and i think it would cost too much to change a pioneer lx-81 to multi region.

    Windows 10 will not allow any region changes to the DVD driver

    Hi Dig,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    This issue might occur if region settings is done correctly.



    I suggest you to follow the steps below to change the region settings from region 2 to region 4 ( Australian).

    1. Press Windows Key + R Key.

    2. Type “devmgmt.msc” without the quotes and hit on Enter Key.

    3. Expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the DVD drive for which you want to change region settings and then click
    Properties.

    4. On the DVD Region tab.

    5. Under list of regions, scroll down the mouse to search for Australia from the list and click on it.

    6. Then region 4 will be listed below, then click on Ok button.





    Please get back to us with an update on issue with DVD region settings, we will be happy to help.



    Thank you.
