Question about NAD C541 CD Player
Hi. I have had the DVD player for one year, approximately. My problem is that Iit does not play movies that I have seen previously. Instead, it shows an error message that says ?wrong region?, but it would not send this message before, even if I played the same movies. It seems that the DVD plays only burned movies now. Does anyone know what to do? Thanks Carmen
It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.
You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.
Hope this helps.
