That is because your DVD player is tied to the region where you bought it.
You might be able to find a workaround on the internet. Go to google and type "region free [name or model of your player]" in the search bar.

Or you can come back here and submit what player you have and someone might know a specific site.

That's all I can say right now, without knowing what kind of player you are using.

Good luck!

When I inserted a disc on my home Sony DVD player my screen said" Playback prohibited due to area restrictions". It does play, however, on my office computer DVD player. Thanks, Natalie


DVDs are encoded to a particular region and will only play on dvd players that are encoded to accept that region. Usually a computer dvd reader is region free meaning that it can play DVDs from any region without a problem. For example the USA is region 1 and Austrailia is region 5. A disc made for Australia (region 5) will not play in a standard USA player (region 1). see this link on Wikipedia for more information HERE . The good news is that sometimes you can set up your DVD player to accept discs from any region. If you are interested let me know the exact model of your DVD player and I will look it up. Please rate me well if this has helped.

Region code for Samsung DVD-V6700


1. Make sure there is no DVD in the drive. The player must be empty. Turn on the player, (the Samsung logo appears)
2. Press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
3. With your remote enter the code: 76884
4. The current region is displayed on the top left corner of the screen. (e.g. 4)
5. Press 9 on your remote (Region free)
6. Again press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
7. Enjoy the Region free player

If your player is NOT Region 4 by default then you will need to Substitute the Numbers in Step 3 with the ones Below.

Region codes:
RC 1: 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
RC 2: 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 (or 5, 7, 5, 3, 8 )
RC 3: 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
RC 4: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
RC 5: 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
RC 6: 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

For Example if your Player was Purchased in the USA ( Which is Region 1) then Step 3 would read :-

3. With your remote enter the code: 29334
