"wrong region" on dvd player


According to the Wikipedia, "DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The DVD Copy Control Association in California, USA, requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the Regional Playback Control (RPC) system - according to the Australian government's anti-monopoly watchdog, the ACCC. It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations. DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

A brand new DVD player allows you to play DVDs from different regions only five times, locking to the last region watched after these five times. So, you might have used your five region-change permissions and your DVD player is now locked to a different one from that of the DVD you want to watch (even thou you might have watched normally before).

There are some softwares like "DVD Region+CSS Free" from dvdidle.com or "CloneDVD 2" from Slysoft.com that allow you to back up your DVDs without the annoying region code. There are also sites like www.rpc1.org and www.dvdexploder.com that provide firmware or remote control codes to unlock the region of your DVD player.

Hope this information helps you understand why your DVD player is behaving like that and how to bypass that pitfall.

What does check regional code mean?


It means your DVD player has a different region code to the disc you are attemting to play.

DVD's and most DVD players have a region code corresponding to the country/region in which they were purchased. The region code printed on the disc must match the region code of the player, usualy found on the rear of the unit or in the manual. Only players set to code 0 or 9 are able to play all regions, a setting of 1- 6 is most common. 1 = USA 2 = Europe etc.

It is often possible to set your player to code 0 or 9 enabeling you view all region DVD's.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
