Hi. My daughter and her fiancee sent me some DVDs from Germany and they won’t play in my Magnavox MWD2205 because they are from Region 2? Is there a way I can do something to this player so I can watch these DVDs? Many thanks.
you can try this:
Region code hack posted by Bob, July 28 2007:
The 2205 and 2206 are not made by MAGNAVOX.
The manufacturer is FUNAI CORP.
Note: This hack is incomplete because of lack of firmware available for the drive. If anyone can provide the firmware please provide a link!
Press 1,2,3,4 and the Display buttons on your remote to see your…
Model Number: E8C60UD "May Differ in Products!"
Firmware Revision: 1.24 "May Differ!"
Region Setting: 1 “We want 0 for Multi-Region!”
Press 9,8,7,6 and the Search Mode buttons on your remote to initiate the firmware upgrade sequence.
“When firmware is found or released for this model, the user burns it onto a cd, inserts the disc in the tray and the machine will update itself for about 5 minutes. The user then uplugs the machine, replugs and the process is complete. Perform step 1 again to ensure you are Multi-Region compatible.”
Thank you for the timely answer. Guess I’m outta luck since don’t have (or know where to get) firmware.
