Alibaz, After looking this theme up there are two ways to which i would approach it. a) is selecting the region for which the dvd is formatted for or b) waiting for a patch to come out. 
There is a way you are able to reformat your hdrive whihc would let you play it but things get messy really quick.  -Please post with what you decide to do. -Thank you and i look forward to your postings.

How to unlock the DVD component of our blu ray player so that we can play multi Region DVDs


You didn't mention make and model of player. However, try videohelp.com to see if there is a region reset or unlock for your player there (it will usually reset it unlock entire player, not just DVD part only). Easiest way is go to google, type in make one model of player, the word "region" and "videohelp.com"

How do i unlock my LG BH7520 blue ray dvd player to play multi region or region 2 thank you


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your player(region free). However, some DVDs (multi region in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

Multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!
