    To make the player Region free:
    This player should be region free straight from the box
    If you are still unable to play no home region discs then try the following:-
    Press PAL/NTSC
    Press Menu
    Press 0
    VCD Hack:

    Open the tray
    Press 2, 8, 1, 2 and Enter (a secret menu appears)
    Push in the tray with VCD on board
    Wait a second and the stop icon appears on top left of screen
    Press 1 and VCD will play
    Beware: UK retailer Argos are selling the Alba 108xi which looks similar, but alias, is not mult-region out of the box

    Thanks to Buzz Lightyear for the VCD hack, Richard for the Alba 108xi information and Bryan for the update
    Found here http://www.dvd365.net/?hacks.htm
    Or look here http://www.vcdhelp.com/dvdhacks.php?select=Alba DVD108
    Google is all you need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes::rolleyes:
