Dvd comes up invalid key & will not play dvd.


Would this be just one or a few discs or all?
Without more info its hard to answer except that DVD's have region codes which dictate which discs they will play.
If things are still the same we in europe are region 2, USA region 1 etc.
I have seen DVDs ending up here from the USA that will not play, because players have only been set (by manufacturers to a single region).
Many cheap players only can only play just one because its down to licence issues, while expensive (big brand or US backed models can play up to 2 regions) clever machines are Open (all regions).
Some machines may be altered by some methods on various hacker forums on the web.
I would check those DVD's region codes on their covers or it could be a simple lens clean of your player (many cleaners for this around) or some fault with that machine (software or Firmware (software for its cpu)) update to make it play later produced discs) which would require a computer leads and some skill. Another problem exists if its laser unit gets weak then signal images get fuzzy, such that a system will "give up reading" and throw up some "message" by way of "I am unable to play this".

Hope this helps........

I have a panasonic dvd player model no: DMR EX78 I live in south east Melbourne Australia and have purchased a few dvds from Amazon, sometimes I get a message saying something about regions, I spoke to my...


The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.

There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.

No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.

Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.

On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.

What is the country code for australia - lg dvd recorder


The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

Hope this information is useful to you.

We bought three Playstation 2 games in the US, and now find we are unable to play them in Australia due to the region code. Is there any way to fix this?


By getting the console modded to play any region games. May also be a compatibility issue with games I assume Aussie TVs are PAL like NZ. USA games may run in NSTC. Some TVs can allow this but don't know if it effects the console though

The disc's region is incorrect. what is mean by this????


Hello,

Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.

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.

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!!
