What kind of drive do you have? Some drives can be made region free. You should look here:

Its drive dependent. Those apps are for liteon drives. If your drive is not a liteon, you will probably need a new firmware. I think there is a directory on that site I posted that will lead to firmwares for other types of drives. If you post the brand and model of drive you are using, it would help me locate some info for you better.

like Lifenergy said, there are places where you can download hacked firmwares and can change it an unlimited of times. I'm going to have to assume that you have run out, and I'm not sure if those hacked firmwares will work for you.

Those cocksuckers in the movie industry made different regions, so you don't buy DVD's really cheap over seas and then bring them back and play it on your computer.

If your using windows, go into the device manager and right click, properties on your DVD drive. Click on the "DVD Region Tab" and read what it says. You only have a limited number of changes left, and then it should say how many changes you have remaining. I'm going to have to assume that you have 0 changes left. There is only a few things you can do now.
1. Try using a hacked firmware
2. Send it back to the manufacturer to get set the region for you(you can only do this a limited number of times also)
3. Buy a new DVD drive

What daussaulit was recommending you download was not the DVD Region+CSS Free program, but rather the firmware that is ont hat page for your drive. Underneath that program is the firmware it says: "BTC BDV-316B (16X/48X) 0.44, 0.47, 1.00" in small print. You can right click and "save target as" on the 0.44, 0.47, or 1.00 to download the firmware.

well it seems like you've gotten enough support here...

for any mac users, there is a great utility called "Region X" - you have to update your firmware to make your drive region-free (find information here: http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php), and then use this utility to have infinite number of region-changes.

Ever heard of a keygen or crack?

Ecstacy got me standing next to you
Getting sentimental as fuck spillin' guts to you
We just met
But I think I'm in love with you
But you're on it too
So you tell me you love me too
Wake up in the morning like "yo, what the fuck we do?"
