Does anybody know how to change region code or reset the counter in Apple DVD player 2.0 or 2.2.
I have DvDack and it works in 1.3 version, but not in software players.

Try deleting preference, deleting DVD-player then re-installing, etc. You're bound to find something that works.
This may seem a bit extreme, but I just formatted my hard drive 4 times (friggin Linux!) and that seemed to work exceptionally well :-)

The apple card will switch like 5 times, then it will hold the last code indefinitly, i guess the number is kept in the cards firmware

I found the cure.
Just needed to replace the DVD Rom version to c15C. No more region codes it's working for all.

Yes, it works fine but have you tried to change between region codes ?
More than 5 times ?
