"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.

Bought a new dvd it will not play, its giving me a regions code error. what is the code, and how do i put it in the dvd player?


A regions code error means that the player is not compatible to play a DVD from a different region than what it was designed to play. For example, if you purchased your player in the U.S. or Canada then it is a region 1 player and therefore will play DVD's from region 1.

Here is a region map http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/dvd/regions/regions.php

There are however, ways around this as some manufacturers of players have made a way to be able to allow the end user to unlock the software codecs that are for different regions. You will have to search for an online source that has a download or a procedure to follow to unlock your player.

I bought a movie diff region and i have a dvp1013 canregionchange


DVD's are made in different region codes as they are intended to be played on specific types of DVD players. As far as I am aware there is no way to change the region code of a DVD.

However, your DVD player maybe able to bypass the region code through a type of "hack"; you might search online for your specific DVD player.

A DVD drive on your computer may also be able to play the DVD although you may need to further research specific software players. You should be able to find some freeware that would enable you to play your DVD on your computer assuming your drive can read DVD's.

Another option is to buy a region-free (also known as an all-region) DVD player. Although they are a bit more expensive than a regular DVD player, region-free means you never have to worry about software fixes or trying to reconfigure your current DVD player. Online sellers abound the most well known probably including Amazon and YesAsia (a site that specializes to selling Asian merchandise overseas).

Hope this helps, I was a little vague in places.
Basically you can't change the DVD so much as the DVD player.

Need unlock code to view DVD's


If you are wondering the reason why DVD players are locked/region specific and which region of the world you are in visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions

Can't give you the exact code as you have not specified the DVD model.

Option 1)
go to: http://www.dvddemystifiziert.de/codefree_en/magnavox.html
If your DVD player model isn't there choose option 2 below:

Option 2)
The following link will lead you to a site with different Magnavox DVD player models and the corresponding codes.

http://www.multi-region.net/magnavox

if the code starts with "REGION FREE ONLY FIRMWARE UPGRADE MODE" you will need to find, download and burn to disc the firmware for your dvd player and follow the instructions.

Firmware is the program that tells DVDs what to do and not what to do.
