How can I unlock my DVD-rom to make it multiregion player?
I have a samsung DVD-rom, cd-rom,cd- writer combo, to begin with it played DVDs from any region but after five changes of region it locked itself on region 2. Is there any way that I can unlock it so that I can watch DVDs from other regions?

A firmware "upgrade" may do what you want if one is available.

See if your model is here: http://perso.club-internet.fr/farzen.../dvd/combo.htm

Be very careful. Any mistakes while flashing can render your drive useless. Sometimes, if you just want one other region, it is better just to add a second DVD drive.

DVD genie will help if the locking is due to the software player locking itself. But it won't help a region-locked DVD drive. That's what the firmware change does.

why do they even have different regions? why do the players have to lock up on one region. seems stupid to me. I used to have some links for messing with the rgions of dvdrom drives, I'll try to find them
