Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-NR430E/S NoteBook ?

Dvd stuck on zone 1 when i am a zone 4

\015 The laptop would only give me three goes to lock the dvd region code, problem was it would not except anything other than region/zone code 1. I can't use the dvd to watch any dvd's as I live in a zone/region 4, so all my dvd's are this zone. Yes I could buy region 1 dvd's but then I can only watch them on the laptop. I have been told you can flash the hard drive? but when researching this find out you can bugger your hard drive if you dont do it right or have the right flash?,\015\012Have looked at sites to do this but none seems to work, downloaded some dvd region free program, but that didnt work either, (Or I didnt fiqure it out right). Apart from spending a fortune on paying someone to fix this, are there any other ways?? The laptop dvd is three years old now, and have put up with it for this long, but thought their might be someone out there who knows what to do about this problem.Yes I could trade it and upgrade but money issues are the problem, yes i could sell it but who going to buy old laptop with faulty dvd player, and I kinda like my laptop.\015\012mine is a sony vaio vgn nr430e model laptop bought in USA. currently being used in India. i have completed the limited number of chances which can be used to set the region and finally ended up with 0 chances. Can I make my laptop work with all regions support??\015

Answers :

Try this program. It works well but isn't free anymore so after trial expires you will need to purchase it.

Another program that can be used is DVD Ghost or the DVD Utilites that can be download free trial here.

All these programs will work with your drive.
You can only change the region code 4 times and on the fourth time it locks on that region and you cannot change it again.
\015\012You can upgrade the firmware on your DVD drive to make it region free (if available for your model DVD), but if you install or make a mistake then your DVD drive will be a piece of junk.
\015\012The best solution is to run a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com, it cost a few dollars and you get free updates forever, I also use their DVD copy program DVD FAB Gold, great software also free upgrades forever.
