Applications :: Apple DVD Player Region Codes?

Apr 22, 2009

NB: First mac...When I first put a DVD into my mac (DVD and mac both from Australia) I was asked to set my region code - fair enough. Then, I inserted another dvd, from Australia again. I had to reset my region code. I was alarmed to find that I could only set my region code 5 times...I know of alternatives such as VLC that ignore region coding, but none of these offer the tight integration that Apple's DVD player does.A quick google search also revealed the possibilities of installing a region-free drive, and using a utility called RegionX, which resets OSX's region change counter (only with region-free drives...). Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of extra optical drive bays, as with the Mac Pro...

MacBook Pro :: Change The DCD Region More Than 5?

Apr 3, 2012

on a macbook pro, you can only change the DCD region 5 times. I accidentally changed it 5 times and now it's stuck on the european region, which means that i can't watch american dvds.  can I re-set my dcd region or do I have to go to the store?   i was living abroad and that is why i had to switch so many times.

MacBook Pro :: Change My DVD Region One More Time?

Apr 12, 2012

When I first got my macbook I changed the region the 5 times you are allowed without realising that there was a limit.I had recently got a region 1 DVD and wanted to play it so I kept changing the region to region 1 and it eventually stuck on that. This is a problem because 99% of my DVDs are actually region 2 so I can't watch any of them.I didn't know there was a limit to changing it or I wouldn't have changed and now I feel pretty desperate because it was just a mistake and now I can't watch any of my DVDs on it.

MacBook :: No DVD Region Change Dialog - DVD Not Mounting

May 24, 2009

I had until now only used my macbook with "local" DVD from Region 2. I have a few weeks ago watched one single DVD from region 1, and had therefore to accept the region change in the pop-up dialog. I did accept knowing I would reverse to region 2 after.

I have not read an DVD until today, hen I am trying to load again a region 2 DVD.

Problem: DVd player or Handbrake do not see the DVD, (but VLC can), and I see no dialog offering me to change the region code.

1) where can I see what is my current setting?
2) how can I get DVD player Mac OS X to present that dialog, so that I can reverse to region 2?

PowerPC :: Change On DVD Region Code Settings

Apr 26, 2008

I'm down to one last change on the DVD region code setting. It boggles me why Apple would do this. I've tried using VLC and it does not work. Not sure if I'm doing it right, there is a brief window that pops up and then closes immediately. There is time indicated and it looks as though the movie would play, however the the window closes right afterwards. I also have DVD Player still opened because if I were to click cancel, the DVD just pops out. Are there any other alternatives I can try or am I doomed to this one setting? I don't have the time, nor want to go through the hassle of completely wiping out the hard drive and OS again.

MacBook Pro :: Words On It Changed To Numbers/codes?

Mar 8, 2012

When I am using programs like 'Finder' and I'm trying to select different options, for some reason the words such as, 'Arrange by', 'Date created' etc have all changed to number and letter codes, I don't know how I've done this or how to change it back. They all still work if you select them, I just can't read what I'm selecting.

MacBook Pro :: Three Beeps But Also Error Codes - OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Jun 5, 2014

I have a Mid 2010 15" Macbook Pro, core i7 processor, 1.5TB HD, and 8GB of Ram 

In November it started having problems with a gray screen with folder and question mark. I defragged and re-optimized the volumes of the hard drive and everything was fine. I have tried reinstalling both ram chips twice. It worked fine for a few weeks and then I started getting beeps and error codes. I can startup fine but after using for a minute or two the screen freezes and three beeps start. Othertimes a panic code will come up too. 

I've attached the panic codes in images.

Error Code – panic cpu 2 caller 0xffffff000b2dca29  

***Are the Ram chips bad? Or is there an issue with the Logic Board

I've done a bit of search on the two codes I'm seeing and guess it might be the NuRam (8gb) I just put into it. Just wondering if there is anyway I can test the ram before I call them up? Just as a heads up these are the codes I'm seeing:

MacBook Pro :: Matsushita UJ-857 RPC-1 (Region-Free) Update Available

Aug 29, 2007

The notorious Matsushita UJ-857(D) firmware has at last been cracked, thanks to ben11 from rpc1.org. He has released region-free updates for the HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, and KCVB revisions.

Before I provide the download links, here's the obligatory disclaimer:

WARNING: DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU ARE UNCONFIDENT ABOUT THE FLASHING PROCESS. IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG YOU ARE LIABLE FOR DRIVE REPAIR. THE FOLLOWING IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND IS NOT WARRANTED. FLASHING YOUR DRIVE IS IN VIOLATION OF APPLECARE TERMS

Now, take these steps before you do anything:

1. Check that you have a UJ-857 or UJ-857D drive with revisions HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, or KCVB. This can be done by going to the Apple Menu>About This Mac>More Info. This will open up System Profiler. Click on ATA and the Model number and Revision number will be listed. If it looks OK proceed to step 3.

2. If you have a UJ-857(D) drive but the revision number is NOT one of the four listed (HAEA, HBEA, KBVB, or KCVB), then you have not applied the Superdrive Update 2.1 which Apple released in June. You will need to apply this update BEFORE PROCEEDING. This update is no longer available from Apple so you can download it here. Once you have done so, proceed to step 3.

3. Download DVDInfoX to check whether you have a region set. YOU MUST HAVE PLAYED A DVD IN THIS DRIVE AND SET A REGION IN ORDER TO PROCEED. A correctly set drive will produce something along the lines of this using DVDInfoX:

Quote:

Vendor: MATSHITA
Model: DVD-R UJ-857D
Firmware: KBVB
RPC-2 (region locked)
State is SET
4 vendor resets left
3 region changes left
Region 2

If "State" is "SET", you are ready to flash your drive.

4. Download the correct RPC-1 (Region-Free) update.

UJ-857 Revision HAEA

UJ-857 Revision HBEA

UJ-857D Revision KBVB

UJ-857D Revision KCVB.

5. Read the included README and then proceed to opening the "Update to region free" application. The process will start immediately. DO NOT INTERRUPT THE FLASHING IN ANY WAY - it will result in a broken drive. Also, there are only a certain number of times the drive can be flashed so be very very careful. I suggest you restart the computer and shut down any other application that is running before you run the update - just to be safe.

One note: the flashing will probably hang at 60%, and then again at 90%. This is normal. Just be patient and let it finish. Do not panic and do anything stupid.

6. If everything goes well, the flashing will finish and it will ask you to restart. Once you have done that, you can open DVDInfoX and check that the drive has been flashed. A correctly flashed drive will show something along these lines:

Quote:

Vendor: MATSHITA
Model: DVD-R UJ-857
Firmware: HBEA
RPC-1 (region free)

7. That's it. Make sure to download Region X to change the region of the drive before you play DVDs. The drive is region-free, but you must still change the region manually to play DVDs from different regions.

ITunes :: Getting Error Codes -50, 1008 And 5002?

Apr 18, 2012

So I just recently purchased a Mac mini and I started putting my music all into the computer. I logged into my Apple ID and it works fine, but every time I try to update my apps, I get an error code 5002. I thought to myself, "well, this is a Mac, so I know its not a firewall blocking the internet or anything in particular". So I went ahead and tried updating my iTunes Match account while I Googled for the error code 5002. When I updated iTunes Match, it looked as if it was gathering information when all of a sudden, it stops and gives me an error code -50. It said "Genius results can't be updated right now. An unknown error occured (-50). So then I immediately started to worry. I plugged in my iPhone 4S (for the first time) and decided that once in sync mode, it will just update my apps so I don't have to worry about downloading it on my Mac. Well, that is when I received an error code 1008. It wanted me to authotize my computer and when entered my credentials, it said it couldn't authorize it and when I cancelled the process, it gave me the error code 1008. So... I am stuck in a rut since I've spent almost an entire week trying to figure this out with no solution. I have tried signing out and signing back in and nothing. I also restarted my wireless router and no luck. I can't afford to create a new account since I've always had the same Apple ID and I have a BUNCH of media that I have purchased through iTunes, so creating a new Apple ID is out of the question. I can't sync my iPhone, I can't update iTunes Match, and I can't update my apps. I am currently using the 800 dollar Mac Mini.
