Question about Zenith DVB412 DVD Player
I have two DVD players. One, the Zenith will not play any of my FOX DVD's. I have tried my Simpsons DVD's, Futurama DVD's and just tried the movie "That Thing You Do" and every one of these gave me the error message "This Disc is not formatted to play in this region". But yet when I try them on the Panasonic DMR-E55, the disc works fine. The Zenith is probably 3 years old and the Panasonic is maybe 2 years old. The disks are any where from 4 years old to 6 months ago Any clue?
The Panasonic is not "region restricted". This is a security safeguard by studios to keep people from region 1 from using region 3 content. Some material is released in other countries first and later in others. This keeps other regions from using the content from other parts of the world before it is relaesed by the studio there. Your Zenith is not a region free player and the Panasonic is. There is sometimes hacks on Videohelp.com for DVD players to be set to "region free" but not all DVD players are built with it. SONY is another non-hackable DVD player.
