DVD drive region set by itself

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. Recently I found that my laptop's DVD drive region got set by itself. I have only been using VLC media player which doesn't care about DVD regions and BurnAware Free without administrator permission. Previosly it had no region set and 5 changes left. That's how I wanted it to be. In Windows logs I found this which looked a bit suspicious:

Log Name: System
Source: cdrom
Date: 3/10/2021 7:11:44 PM
Event ID: 133
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: HP255-G7
Device \Device\CdRom0 is locked for exclusive access.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="">
<Provider Name="cdrom" />
<EventID Qualifiers="16388">133</EventID>

What could have coused that region to change and how can I reset the firmware back to it's original state?


Thanks for any help.
