I hope this is in the right section and an easy question for the experienced people out there to answer
I have a Dell Inspiron 8500 with a DVD/CD-RW drivev.
The DVD came with 5 region changes, there after the final change its permanent.
I currently have 2 changes left.
The question is this, I would like to play a DVD with region 4. My DVD player is currently set to region 1. The player will not allow me to play the region 4 DVD.
Because my DVD reader is still not “permanently” set a specific region, is there any method/way that will allow me to play my region 4 DVD without changing the DVD region?
I would imagine that since the region coding isn’t locked yet, playing dvd’s from other regions shouldn’t be too hard?
My Drive is as follows:
HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4240N. It says the driver provided is by
- File version 22.214.171.124
as well as running with Microsoft under the drive date 1/07/2001 version 5.1.2535.0.
The drive is running fine currently and I haven’t seen any need to update any drivers or anything
Anything help to allow me to play the DVD region 4 disc in my drive without changing the region locked to the DVD drive would be much appreciated!
