DVD region code is a kind of protection to help film distributors to control a release of film, like movie content, date of release and price. With it, you can only play DVDs in a restricted region. However, many people are not aware of this, and buy some favorite DVDs with pleasure during their travel abroad. When they get home, they just get disappointed, because those DVDs from other regions just can’t be played on their DVD players. If you are one of them, what should you do?

A quick idea come to mind is to disable or reset the annoying region codes from your already bought DVDs for playback.
