Our Sony DVD player will not playimported DVDs from the UStates
Sebastian imported some Avatar DVDs from the UStates.
They will not play on our Sony DVD player bought in the UK.
We think thjis has something to do with the "coding" and the US DVD s are not compatible with our machine??
Is it possible to change the settings on the DVD player to play these US DVDs, ideally the home player would play any DVD at any time
2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)
3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software

Well first of all, as far as have been informed, making backup copies of dvds is illegal. But im not here to critisize you. Your discs that you are copying the movie onto might not be big enough to hold the file. And your laser in your computer might not also be up to the challenge. There should not be any problems with any discs, but you may want to try using standard dvds, not rewritable dvds.
most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.
The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD
Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."
The DW-100 is really more for archiving
your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that
can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players
can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a
Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to
1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def,
you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be
connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder
to your TV via an HDMI cable.
2. If you want to have standard
DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to
your computer and convert them to standard-definition using
video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD
burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good)
to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).
the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic
DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good
results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have
Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's
analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the
right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3
instead of letterboxed.
The disc needs to be finalized before you play it on other equipment.
But to do this will render the disk unusable- If you intend to record over it in time,
So it is best to copy the info across to the PC- burn that to a disk and finalize it then most other DVD players[Not all] will run it.
