I need a way to play dvd's from China. My wife brought her english training dvd's from china but we can not use them on a region 1 dvd. My dvd drive is a matshita DVD +- RW UJ890


Hi, you are partly correct, your region 1 player is also in NTSC format, other regions are in PAL format...... So even if you converted your player to multi region or bought a multi region player it still would not play a PAL disk which the Chinese disks would be! The only way you could do this is to buy a multi region PAL/NTSC format DVD player.

My toshiba L645D wont recognize that some DVD's are in the player while other DVD's it sees an plays. its newer dvd's like Madea's Witness Protection an Battle Los Angeles(for example)it wont see but...


It could be due to a regional issue or related to the type of format.

Regional codes are software lockouts; to deter copyright infringements and piracy issues.

Two basic formats are PAL and NTSC and they are not compatible with each other. For example, a DVD sold in a country that uses the PAL video standard (like England) will not play in a player designed with the NTSC format; Unless of course you have a DVD player that is compatible with both video formats.

Then there's the possibility that the media itself is damaged with a permanent scratch.

If you own an older model DVD player that doesn't support write/re-write discs, that can be an issue as well.

If the format of the recording is a wmv or AVI extension type, unless they are converted to your player's readable format- the movie will not play.

So check the media type you are attempting to play to the type your DVD player will read.

Hope this helps ~ best regards.

I cant play pal formatted discs on my dvd player


PAL is the European format and will only work in PAL DVD players. You need to either get a NTSC (US) formated disc or a PAL formatted DVD player.

When you insert a dvd it says PAL DISK


PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.

My new "panasonic" dmp bd80 not support the PAL DVD format and can't play some DivX disks. Can you give some solution to solve the problem?


Check the dvd player settings. Try and switch the dvd player itself to NT instead of pal.

Some newer DVD Players also play videos in the MPEG-4 ASP video compression format (such as DivX) popular in the Internet, as well as the RMVB video compression format.

Check any settings on dvd player to switch format output, or check tv settings so it accepts all formats.

Philips dvd 3445h doesn't seem to support pal format


You would have to either convert the DVDs to NTSC by ripping them to your computer and using conversion software, or you need to get a player that supports PAL and NTSC. Phillips has players that do both NTSC and PAL but it sounds like the one you have doesn't.
I have a Phillips DVP 5140 that does PAL and NTSC and is region unlocked.
There are other players on the market that do support it, but you will have to look around a bit.

Best of luck
