Pandrew,
The reason you are receiving a "region B error" is because the Blue-ray you are attempting to play is not designated to work with the current drive you have. The regions (A-B-C) were designed so that certain DVD's would only work in certain countries. For instance - Region B DVD's were made to only work in Africa, Europe, Oceania, Middle East, Kingdom of the Netherlands, GB, French territories, and Greenland. Manufacturers did this so that they are able to control what content is released per country.

If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you can use power DVD to correct this problem by editing the registry keys.

After installing PowerDVD, the program will initiate the default value of Region A and 5 remaining changes, and there is not settings in the registry. When region code changed, PowerDVD stores rgion information at this registry key in Windows XP:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{631400EE-60DF-4014-8A01-67106E57BDA8}]
@=dword:00000002
The value can be 1 for Region A, 2 for Region B, 4 for Region C.
There is another registry key that stores the number of remaining changes to region code allowed:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{9CB23675-4229-4630-AFF6-3668BA6AF33E}]
@=dword:00000004
Every time you change region in PowerDVD, this number is decremented by 1.
Thus, to hack PowerDVD region code control in Windows Vista, you can either change the region code directly from the registry, or the value of remaining times left allowed to change region code can be set sky high (such as 65,536 times) so that you can change the region code without limitation.
You can use a registry export file to automate the process. Download the BDregion.zip archive file with BDregionA.reg (to set to region A), BDregionB.reg (to set to region B), BDregionC.reg (to set to Region C) and BDregionNoLimit.reg (to set number of times left for region change to FFFF or 64k times).

YOur PS3 might be overheating, make sure that it is somehwere in the open, like on a desk, or at least has room if its in a cabinet. Also make sure that it is not on a rug, or any other heat conducting amterial such as a bed, rug, or even plastic.

BRDVD Bluray incompatibility list



INSIGNIA BRDVD Blueray player


I like many people have bought a Bluray movie for my BRDVD Bluray player to have it not work. It is unfortunate part of Bluray and near every player has or will have some disc that will not play until a later update is made.

I noticed that it is really hard to find list that tell you what Bluray movies have problems as well as what those problems are. I will have a short list and will try to keep it updated whenever I get a report that a Bluray is having problems. Please report any problems by sending me a email at Tthekraut@yahoo.com or sending me a message in the comments here.


  • Inglorious Bastards-Disc will skip back and not play movie through the main screen. No fix is confirmed.
  • Couples Retreat- Main movie will not play. No fix is confirmed.
  • An Education(BBC video)-Movie skips back to main screen and will not play main video.No fix is confirmed
  • Alvin and the chipmunks-Main movie will not play. No is confirmed at this time.
  • "9"(Nine)- Main movie will not play. No fix confirmed
  • Twilight- Canada only- Movie would not play. Please contact the company located on the disk sleeve. It was a glitch that many player could not overcome so it would go back to main menu.
  • Percy Jackson-said to skip and at times not play at all.
  • Kick ***- Movie will not play and just gives an error on start up.

Please contact me with any info on fixes and problems. I will make several other lists for other players. I bought Inglorious Bastards and all I have is a $25 coaster now. I would like to keep this updated to help others not do the same. I will post any and all problems people are having with differant disk and any possible solutions.

It freezes when playing a blueray movie. it seems


The most likely cause of your frustration with the BDP-S350 is that your player's firmware is not the most current. Most often, the firmware problem is JAVA related and will not let the menus load at all, but freezing during playback has also been reportedly fixed with the firmware upgrade.

The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.

I hope that helps.
