Welcome to Justanswer.

Most Bluray drives allow changing of the Region Code up to five times. You can do this using the Control Panel.

 

Please do the following:

Right-click on the "Computer" icon on your desktop and choose "Properties". In the next windows click on "Device Manager".

You should see a list of all your devies. Locate your BluRay Player and open it by double clicking on it. In the upcoming window there should be an option to change the Region Code.

 

If your drive does not offer this feature, you can alternatively use a software tool to play BluRay Discs that have a different Region Code.

Use "BluRay Region Code Remover" to do this.

You can find the tool here:

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately the program

http://www.themisteriosos.com/remove-blu-ray-region-code-with-blu-ray-region-code-remover.htm, which I have installed, does not solve my problem. I want to be able to read DVDs (not only Blu-Rays) from zone 1,zone 2 and zone 5. I have tried AnyDVD HD 6.7.1.0, without success. I have tried DVD region + CSS free but it does not work either. The most important thing for me is to be able to read DVD from different zones (more important than Blu-ray from different zones).

My hard ware: MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242 1.00 on a Dell Latitude E4310. Windows Ultimate 32 bits (i.e. XP mode available too).

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have just tried DVDFab passkey 7. Does not work either :(

What can I do?

Experte:  tb179 hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Thanks for your reply.

Please try VLC Media Player to play back your DVDs.

You can get it here:

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

 

You could also use the DVD Ripper software "DVD Shrink" including DeCSS. Though DeCSS is banned in most countries, I am not allowed to give you a download link. But Google is your friend :)

 

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Thank you for your answer. I have installed VLC MEdia Player but it will not play zones 1 or 5. DVD Shrink works too, but only with DVDs from zone 2... I never had such problems on my previous computers: DVD Region + CSS Free would always work fine, so did DVD Shrink. But this MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242 seems to be quite difficult (or impossible???) to unlock? What do you think? I did not know when I bought my Dell computer that I would have this MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242 causing me so much problems...

Thanks for your help.

Looks like the newer drives can note be cracked yet.

Please have a look at this forum:

http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=34750&p=228190&hilit=matshita#p228190

 

You can get a cracked firmware there for many drives. Unfortunatley yours is not supported yet. If you don't like to wait, I suggest you buy a drive that is supported by a patched firmware.

Is there a drive (BR dual layer writer, DVD+/- R dual layer writer that would suit for my machine Dell E4310 (quite slim) that you would recommend and that could be unlocked... of course.

Or do you think an external tiny small USB (or SATA) DVD reader could solve the problem? Can such external DVD readers be unlocked easily?

Thanks for your help.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your answer.

My problem is: I cannot find a firmware to unlock my MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242 on a Dell Latitude E4310. It is a Blu-Ray writer. As I am travelling quite often from Switzerland (Where I live, zone 2) to the USA (zone 1) and to Russia (Moscow, zone 5) I would like to be able to watch DVDs (not only Blu-Rays) from these different regions on my laptop as often as I want. I have always been able to unlock my optical drives on my previous laptops using a simple free software (like DVD free). But this time it does not work. I probably need another firmware. But where????

What other solutions do I have? Buy an external SATA or USB DVD-drive? Which one would you recommand? It MUST be code-free:)

Thanks for your help.

M.-E. Roehrich

Experte:  Roberto Raimondo hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Dear Sir,

 

by some DVD Players you can only change the region 5 times. After this you cannot change the region. Last region you´ve changed will be the final region.

 

You can search for this DVD Rom:

Toshiba SD-M1712 DVD Laufwerk Codefree

 

and then with this tool

http://www.chip.de/downloads/c_downloads_8831886.html

you can unlock always.

 

Hope this was helpfull for you.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your answer. So if i have understood everything well, my my MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242 cannot be unlocked because there is no firmware available. Is that correct?

 

I had a look at Toshiba SD-M1712. What I need, I think, is an external DVD reader (with USB 2 connection or eSATA connection. But it needs to be very light and slim because I will have to carry it with me on the plane, connect it to my Dell Latitude E4310 as often as I want and watch movies (DVDs) from all regions. Toshiba SD-M1712 looks maybe OK, but is it really a USB external drive? It looks so big... Then of course I need to be sure that the model I will buy can be made code-free! The USB external drive needs to be powered by the USB (or eSATA) port. On a plane, I will not be able to connect this device to another power supply!

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your answer. This external drive looks nice, althouugh there is some negative information on Amazon.com. But in fact I do not need a writer (or burner), just a DVD reader, so it should be OK for me. Now I still have 2 questions (very important):

1) Will it work with Windows 7 ultimate on my Dell Latitude E4310?

2) Will it be code free or will unlocking be possible (and easy)? This is very important. I need a code-free DVD reader.

If the answer is yes (for sure), then I will order this DVD reader on amazon.com and I will be able to accept your answer.

Best regards.

Slim and slick-- UPDATED-- total CRAP!!, November 30, 2007
By Mind Reader "mr"
This review is from: Dekcell USB Slim External Rewriteable DVD +/- RW Drive, DVD Burner I plugged this into my laptop XP and it started up in seconds. Perfect.
Really slim and tight. Sweet.
I got this for my Samsung Q1 Ultra. Awesome.
So this drive can be bus powered or take power from the included AC adapter. For those like me who are a less technically inclined "bus-powered" means that the drive will be powered through the USB cable when you plug it into the computer. That's good if you want to use it with your portable devices because then you will be free from having to deal with another cord (a power cord). The downside to that, of course, is that it will draw power and make your battery life much shorter if your computer unit is running only on batteries.
But you want bus powered! More convenient. This guy will do that. But can also can be plugged into the wall.

UPDATE 2/8/09-- Replaced it- it never would write to dvd or cd, I just never noticed it because it used it only for reading dvds or cds, never writing. TOTAL CRAP!!

We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order by changing its quantity to 0 and clicking the update button below. Learn more

So it seems impossible to buy it from amazon.com and have it shipped to where I live (Switzerland). I tried amazon.de and the problem is the same.

 

What is the use of this device if I cannot buy it????

but could you please first accept my answer?

Then i would try to find some other device for you or the way where you can buy this one.

 

Till now i was answered your questions but still don´t get a cent from you.

 

Thank you

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Well, I need to be sure I can get this device and have it shipped to Switzerland. Another device could work too but it has to be very light and slim and powered by the USB port only. And I need to be sure it can be code-free. It has to work with Windows 7 ultimate.

If these conditions are fulfilled of course I will accept your answer so that you can get paid.

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

OK... I wish it was not so complicated. You do not have any other link where I can buy this device more easily? A web shop in Switzerland would probably make things easier... But I could not find this device in a web Swiss shop... Just too bad. Well, I will try to phone tomorrow to the USA and I will tell you whether it works or not.

Best regards.

M.-E. R.

P.S: I could find external DVD USB drives in the Swiss Dell internet shop. There are a bit more expensive but I would not mind. But I need to be sure that I can unlock them and how. If not, this is useless for me. I could not find this information. Maybe you could have a look at dell.ch, select a device, check whether it can be unlocked and if yes the problem would be solved. Then of course I would accept your answer.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for your answer.

The device you indicate is quite interesting... but.... can it be powered by USB only? This is very important if I want to connect it to my laptop on a plane e.g.

I could not find this information.... Then well, I don't know.

I need a device that can be powered by USB (or eSATA) (I have this port too on my Latitude Dell laptop).

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 7 Jahren.

Here is some more information:

http://www.stegcomputer.ch/shop.asp?active=0.

Have a look at the picture I have enclosed too.

This web shop is in Switzerland so buying one of these devices should be quite easy. But which one should I choose? I mean: which one is really USB-powered and which one is code-free? Or which one can be made code-free easily (by a software like DVD Region + CSS free). I have this software on two other laptops and it works fine. But no software seems to be sufficient to unlock the drive I have on my new Dell Latitude and no firmware seems to be available.

Best regards.

Thanks again.

I have just had a look at the link you sent me. That seems to me terribly risky and complicated.

The easiest thing would be: an external USB DVD drive that would be code free using DVD Region + CSS free software. Can't you find such a device for me? (A device that I could by on a web shop situated in Switzerland).

Best regards.

Thank you for the link. Looks interesting. But you still have not answered my question entirely: which one will work for all zones with Region + CSS free software?

Dear Sir,

I am sorry but I need to tell you I am not satisfied with your answers.

First, you have not been able to help me to unlock my MATSHITA BD-RE UJ242.

Then, you sent me information about external DVD readers that are not available in Switzerland. Finally I asked you to give me the reference for an external device that would become code-free with a simple software (I have bought Region + CSS free software and it works fine on my other computers). The links you sent me give very complicated information (I am not an expert), with the need to flash the firmware -> which will void the guarantee.

I went this evening to a shop in Lausanne (FNAC). The guy really helped me: we tried an external device, and it works fine for all regions with Region + CSS free software ). This is the piece information I wanted from you. The device is small, light, USB-powered, and there is no need to flash the firmware (then I still have my guarantee).

In conclusion, I cannot accept your answer.

Best regards.
