    Hello everyone,

    Im not sure if this issue was addressed before, but I cant seem to find it. So here goes. I switch regions on my DVD player to view movies from different zones, and I kinda forgot that there are only 5 switches allowed. Is there any way to bypass this stupid restriction on switching region codes? Any help would be appreciated.

    The issue is, you are trying to update (program) your DVD drive to a new region (5 changes allowed)
    Once you have used all 5, that's it !

    I use DVD Region Free (Actually there are a number of these programs - usually cost)
    These DVD Region Free programs do not change, or program, your DVD drive.
    They make your DVD drive think that it has changed.

    Ah, I will try that program. I was experimenting with a similar one on a friends computer before, but couldnt get it to work. But I didnt spend much time on it, I guess Il go back to trying to figure it out.
