I bought a DVD set from Ireland and it won't play on my DVD player or my Wii. Is there a setting I need to change?


Hi there!
North American TVs, consoles and DVD players play video and games in the NTSC format (region 1), while Ireland's and most of Europe's play in PAL(region 2). You best bet to be able to watch your dvd set will be to purchase a dvd player that plays multi regions (these will be a bit more expensive) or to order a region 2 dvd player from Ireland or somewhere in Europe that uses region 2.

Hope this helps!

You can change the region code on your DVD player only 4 times, then it will lock on that region permanently.

My laptop won't play region 1 dvds, I bought the laptop in the uk and now moved to canada, can anybody please assist me


From Control Panel, click System, Device Manager, click + beside DVD Drive, right click you drive and select properties, DVD Region Tab, and change Region to Canada. You can only chnage this 5 times until it locks on the last change. Look into a program called AnyDVD as it will play Region Free.

Multi region code


An option. 
 Download DVD fab or another like product which takes off the region code completely using a PC then copy the DVD onto another DVD using the DVD burner,or find someone who can do this for you.

well, un-install the dvd application software and install it again it will ask you the region and specify the correct on. you can also set the region on the setting tab.
the power dvd is the best application software for playing dvds, try it.

DVDs in PAL format


Hey LauraJPL,

Because PAL-format and Region 2 DVD's are primarily used in Europe, they generally will not be sold through Best Buy™ stores located within the United States or Canada. While U.S. and Canadian stores may sell some multi-region or region-free DVD's, the vast majority of the titles offered will be Region 1 NTSC-format discs.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
