Early DVD-ROM drives were code-free, but those sold after January 1, 2000 are set to a specific code, depending on where they are sold, and will only allow a limited number of code changes. The newer DVD drives only allow that to be done five times. After the fifth change, the drive is permanently set in the code that was last selected. (See our detailed how-to guide on exactly how to switch the codes, if your computer's DVD drive doesn't do that easily.)
Note: Changing the code setting on a DVD-ROM drive is not only possible, but also perfectly legal. Newer computers make this easy, but for older models we offer a how-to guide to switching DVD code settings.
NOTE: Newer computers (2003 or later) with DVD drives usually detect the region code automatically and ask if you want to switch the code setting. But you still only have five times before the last code change becomes permanent (no more changes allowed)!
