Region free DVD player, free!

Q: Region free DVD player, free!

HI!
I have a Toshiba Satellite, that only allows 4 DVD zone changes before it refuses to change zones. I do a lot of travelling, and my computer is stuck in zone 2 now, when I usually live in Zone 4. Does anyone know any FREE (not free for 30 days) software that I can download to fix this problem?

Preferred Solution: Region free DVD player, free!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Region free DVD player, free!

I wonder if you had an external (USB) DVD Drive set to region 4, and an internal drive set to 2 (actually I've never tried this, but it should work)
Ofcourse this is not free (and actually dearer than DVD Free software) but at least it avoids having another program running all the time.

I'm considering purchasing a new DVD player, but I'd like a little advice, as I'm fairly inexperienced in this particular department. Region free means that it plays DVDs from all countries, correct? So with it, I should be able to play everything, all formats, right?

Now, I was told that these are rather difficult to find in most stores. I'm not completely sure why that is, although I think I have some idea, but in any case, I've also heard that you could modify a standard DVD player to be region free, which would be great if I have trouble finding a store with any region free DVD players in stock. So is that true? And if so, how difficult is this? And moreover, how much technical expertise would be required?

Also, if anyone knows where I can find a good one for fairly cheap, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I have a Philips DVP5140, and the instructions for making it region free are as such: 1. Turn on the unit 2. Open the loading tray 3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote 4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key 6. Press the down arrow once to enter the Preference page 5. Enter 138931 on the remote 6. You will now see the current region code displayed 7. Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or "0" for all regions 8. Press the "Play" button on the remote But it doesn't seem to work for me. When I type in the code, nothing happens. I've tried subtle variations, like not pressing down at preferences, and still, I get the same result, or lack of result rather. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

I recently purchased a new computer. The man told me that the voltage in Japan would be compatible if I merely bought an adapter for the plug, and such. I'm hoping that he's right.

Anyway, my REAL question, is about my DVD-/+RW drive. According to the bill, it is a:

LG GSA-4167 16X DVD-/+RW IDE INT. OEM

Set-up Sheet says: GSA-4167B

I was also told that I could download region-cracking software, such as "DVD Region Killer" which supposedly will deal with this issue without me having to use up my region switch, which the hardware will only let me use 4 times.

Is DVD Region Killer a reliable piece of software? It was made in 2002, so I'm a bit concerned. Or should I get something else? Preferably freeware.

Or even better, is the DVD burner already region free, which I doubt?

dvd shrink takes out the region crap encoded in dvd. but you gotta burn it to blank dvd. As long as you have regular dvd, i guess its legit.

I have a Sony Vaio with a Matshita UJ 850 D DVD player that I would like to make region free. It is currently set to Region 1 and the computer will not let me change it to Region 2 even though I have four changes left. I'd prefer not to pay 75 US dollars for software if I don't have to but I'm also a little concerned about the free software that warns can completely ruin the DVD player. I just received a new DVD player from SONY because my other one broke (it was within warranty but I won't get another one out of them now). Can anyone help? Thank you. Monica

I bought a DVD via ebay and the only one they had for this movie was a region2 dvd. Of course I can't watch with my dvd player. I could buy a region free dvd player, but why should I for one movie. Is there a way to burn the movie so it plays on any dvd player. I've tried changing the region when I burned it the first 20 times. I'm not going to give up though, there has got to be a program that I can download to burn the movie region free so it player on my dvd player. Any information is helpful and greatly appreciated!

Hi, i have an LG dvd drive in my pc and it is region locked. I want to watch dvds from other regions so i was gonna buy a Liteon region free drive.

in other words , does a ALL region DVD appear the same as region free DVDs to DVD players?
i used an old edition of DVD shrink to make some DVD movies before. but later i changed to AnyDVD with DVDclone. AnyDVD told me that the DVDs that were made with DVDshrink has region code locked to 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 instead of being region free. whilst those made with DVD clone, are recognized as region free.
i would like to ask if the DVD region of a DVD player has to be changed to one of the following: 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 when i put a DVD made with DVD shrink into it? given that the DVD player is a new one, not yet played any DVD, which should has a region code of 7 ( not selected). what will happen if i really put one of those DVD made with DVD shrink (with six regions allowed.) into my DVD player? would it just automatically change itself into 1? (because 1 is the smallest but i do not live in US or Canada!) i am so afraid that i do not dare putting the DVD to try it on my own in case it will waste the number of times i can change the region.

I personally just enjoy Winamp (www.winamp.com). It's low on resources and manages my playlists pretty well (I don't need much more done) ...

If you have an I-pod, then I-tunes is the obvious way to go .... although you could go to www.mediamonkey.com and download that program too .... it's got quite a few applications installed onto it which might be what you're looking for (can also synchronise your I-pod and Mp3s) .... Real player is another option ... www.real.com

For video purposes, I enjoy VLC Media player .... http://vlc-media-player.en.softonic.com/ .... excellent! Does not need any other codecs and can play and repair almost any video file.

A:Avast Free - Are Free antivirus software good ?

Avast free antivirus is an excellent choice in hardened mode! just make sure you deselect all the crap that you do not need during install ( secureline - browsercleaner - avast cleaner - software updater and so on. )

360 Total Security Essentials is all that is needed. With Avira and Bitdefender engines enabled, RAM usage is high... but only when interface is open or scanning. It will only be a real problem if user always has interface open.

Protection far outweighs the RAM usage. Plus, 360 Essentials is very user friendly.

I'm looking to replace Windows Media Player, and I want to find something that's versatile, functional, and most importantly stable.

I've tried RadLight, which was okay, but had lousy video capabilities.

Then I found VLC Media Player. Anyone interested in open-source software should check that out. It's an awesome idea, and it can handle just about any video format you throw at it, but I kept crashing it trying to open files.
Yeesh.

I'll probably check later releases of VLC [did I mention it was available on ALL platforms?] but for now, I'll keep looking.
Suggestions, anyone?

Have any of you ever played with a *spit* Macintosh? Well, they have a dedicated application called "DVD Player" that plays DVDs, and NOTHING else. It is dead simple to use, and does not include useless and redundant features.

Is there anything like that for Windows? I know I can use VLC, but I don't like it. I never need any of the other features, and all of the other features and playback options get in the way of quickly watching a DVD.

thanks.

I know VLC player has PGS and XSub support. I use it on Vista64. But the last 1/2 dozen releases, it crashes on W7 as soon as I touch it. So I can't use it. Even reinstalling an old version that used to work, won't work.

Anyone know another free player that can play .m2ts and .mkv with PGS and optionally XSub support for Windows Seven?

A:W7 non-VLC free player with PGS subtitle support?

Sorry to hear about the problem with VLC, but it is not inherent with W7, because I use it without any issues on 2 rigs both running W7 x64. If reinstalling didn't fix the problem, I would suspect that something else is involved, but have no idea of what. Since it may be some other app, have you tried using it on a clean boot or Safe Mode?

However if anyone can find the OFFICIAL links to VMware player (Free) not using file sharing such as filehippo etc. please post.

Seems VMware has found too many people were using the old FREE VMware player rather than buying Workstation.

Yes, it's still free.

Look at this page: VMware Player Plus: Easiest Way to Run a Virtual Machine | United States

They tell you all about Player Plus, but if you scroll to the bottom, it has a section for the Free Player.

Here is the download page that has the Free Player: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/fre...are_player/6_0

And here is the FAQ where they discuss whether Free is still available and where it can be used: VMware Player Plus FAQs: Create and run virtual machines on a Windows or Linux PC | United States

Companies frequently do this with free products, bury them a little. This way people have to see and learn about the paid products and this encourages them to pay for the more advanced products.

Good question.
I was of the impression that you had to have purchased the WMC pack in W8 to qualify but I could be wrong.
Only one way to find out!

Just a note: In my experience, the DVD Player App is terrible, awful freezing and stuttering on many types of DVD's; really hit and miss!

4. You can install everything which is free (trial included) and everything for which you have a legal license (key).
 
5. If you can boot from it you can run it.
 
6. If you don't share folders, USB's, ... it is very safe. That said, nothing is 100 % safe these days.

Hi all
to those who don't want to shell out dollars for a purchase or upgrade of vmware workstation version 8 the FREE latest version of vmware PLAYER (version 4) works just fine.

Note however that while you CAN create vm's you don't get the full features of the paid for work station product such as "Cloning", "snapshots", Teams etc etc.

For testing current version of W8 this might not be a drawback to a lot of people so if you like using vm's under vmware the latest version of vmware player is just fine too --- did another install just recently of W8 so I have one under Esxi and another as a guest on W7 x-64.

There doesn't seem to be ANY link to the FREE vmplayer product and even the vmplayer PLUS doesn't mention that it WAS free for home users.

Can't find any mention on the site that it's FREE any more.

Hi there

Why can't people be more honest on their websites -- as well as making it harder and harder to find REAL downloads without confusing extra offers / links to other programs with the real link buried deep down in an easy to miss website - I really hate the following that seems to be commonplace now -- FREE DOWNLOAD which implies FREE -- but the SOFTWARE most certainly Isn't but totally no mention of BUY / PAY on the site.

We should BOYCOTT those sites and make our feelings known --nothing wrong about people wanting to make a few bucks - especially these days with good jobs getting harder to find -but we can still be OPEN.

A:avast free,spybot s&d free and win defender

I haven't used spybot in many years, it got too glitchy and difficult to use for me...
I tested several Anti Malware programs years ago and chose Malwarebytes (MBAM) Pro, no regrets here.
If you're thinking of MBAM paid, you should get the PRO Lifetime license while you still can.

Newegg.com - malwarebytes pro

MBAM Premium (Ver 2) is an annual license (yearly fees).
I don't use Windows Defender, I use MBAM real time on all my systems.

For additional "real-time security" I also use:

Hello and welcome to malwaretips,
I think adaware got a better detection, but i would trust more Panda.
Both don't have proactive protection, and web filter are almost the same.
Adaware do more false positive than Panda (thanks bitdefender engine).
If you can use other antivirus than panda or adaware you should do it.

A:90% free cpu free ram computer freeze/slow

Hi Demonheim I can see that you have many problems caused by your NVIDIA drivers/programs. The first step would be to reinstall the latest version for your NVIDIA drivers and see if you still have any issues after. Do you know your exact NVIDIA card model? Also, I strongly suggest you to uninstall AVG Web TuneUp since it's also crashing, and is useless to have.

A:Avast free vs Bitdefender free for newbies

If they absolutely don't know anything ("Hey, what's quarantine? What's scanning? What's definitions?") then Bitdefender without a doubt. If they know basic settings and to tell the difference between false positives than Avast!. I'll have to vote Bitdefender here, but Avast! is a much greater antivirus with those with basic security knowledge.

Update: See below post. I know longer reccommend Bitdefender. +1 to Avast!

I had been using File History, but then for some reason it no longer backs up my folders. Besides, it seems I cannot set it up to backup only selected folders. The only choice I seem to have is to backup all HD.
I need to be able to
1. have a 2nd (and maybe a 3rd) copy of photos/videos and personal files in external HDs.
2. Once I copy new photos from source to PC, Backup software should be able to identify what's new and copy it to backup locations.
3. In the event when duplicates exist, Backup software should be able to suggest/request removal of them.

Any suggestions to other features are more than welcome, even if it's just to make better use of File History.

Thanks in advance guys!

A:Can one suggest an excellent free/nearly free BackUp app

Sorry I don't know much about free as over the years I have found that free is not always free and recovering your data when something bad happens. And It will happen. It just isn't worth taking a chance on free.
I use and still use Acronis True Home Image. I'll continue using this program on BIOS/MBR computers.
When we started using newer machines that are UEFI/GPT Acronis did not step up to the plate for several years 2011 through 2014 they advertised that they were UEFI complaint. While at the same time they were not able to restore a working OS Booting Hard Drive. This was a nightmare to a lot of us. I understand that in April 2014 they came out with an update that did make ATHI 2014 actually work. I can't say for sure as by this time I had found Macrium Reflect which is a very good back up program/ Imaging program that actually Clones or Images UEFI GPT machines and 100% restores booting OS hard drives/SSD. The main reason that I'll be moving everything over to Reflect is One it works, two there tech support is English speaking highly experienced people that actualy work directly with the product.
The free addition will work good for disk Images and for Cloning. If you want to use file and folder backup you'll have to pay for a license. I personally caught a 30% off sale and got a Pro License. As I upgrade the other Work Stations and Notebooks they will only need the standard License.
So I recommend Macrium Reflect, however Acronis may be better for your requirements. You'll just have to check out there features. And I also recommend that you check out the Support Forums for both programs and little bit of time spent investigating could save you a lot of aggravation latter on.
I don't know of any back up software that will inform you of duplicates. Since they would have to be in different folders I have never needed such, so I could be wrong about that.

I currently use ZA Free but due to the size of it since the Pro stuff is just turned off and it possibly acting weird I was going to use ZA Free on my replacement laptop coming up instead Then Comodo Free FirewallVersion was recommended to me But Firewallversion Free Zonealarm 6.5.737 Free Vs. Comodo 2.4 then Comodo Free Firewallversion 2.4 Vs. Zonealarm Free 6.5.737 I saw that it supposedly has a vulnerability that won't be fixed until the next version if that even I also see that it says quot after downloading and installing the firewall just register with us and you will be sent a free license After activation this license will never expire quot -- so what information do you have to provide to register This firewall stuff kind of makes my head spin since I'm no expert but I'm trying to decide what I should go with between these two on my replacement laptop Opinions with explanations understandable by a non-expert are appreciated I am also considering buying the AVG Internet Security which seems to include a Firewall How does that one measure up I'll have Windows XP Pro I use Firefox for all internet browsing except for Windows Updates and the occasional Office Updates and I have dial-up Some A V antispyware etc programs I plan on using are SpyBot Ad-Aware SE Free AVG A V Free AVG Antispyware Free and maybe Comodo BOClean Anti-Malware Version and SpywareBlaster Thanks for the help opinions

A:Comodo Free Firewallversion 2.4 Vs. Zonealarm Free 6.5.737

The only thing you have to provide is your email address. If you don't want any offers from Comodo, make sure the the box underneath is ticked. I think it says something along the lines of tick this box if you do not want to receive any other offers from Comodo.The programs you have mentioned will create no problems as i can see, although you should ensure that the WIndows default fire is turned off when using another firewall. To turn off Windows Firewall, click start>run and type in firewall.cpl then click OK. Click on the circle next to Off(not recommended) then OK.Don't worry, using any firewall other the Windows one is preferable, as Windows only protects you from incoming threats, not outgoing threats!About the vulnerability, there will always be one, no matter what firewall you use, as hijackers and other computer bad guys come up with new tactics....but Comodo has worked fine for me and has even alerted me to the fact i have IRCbot (a backdoor trojan/worm)!!!But about which firewall is better, i don't know. I can't say so because i haven't used the AVG firewall. Although i would expect Comodo to be better, based on the fact that AVG is mainly an anti-virus program, and would therefore concentrate on the virus side of things. That is exactly why i do not use the Trend Micro firewall i have.I love Mozilla add-ons, they make me feel safe.......try the add-on found here that heps protect you against keyloggers which basically see what you type and can steal your username(s) and passwords.Hope my opinion helps! Have a great day
