Hi,
You need to check the dvd player manual for region restriction, for region restriction dvd's you cannot play on your dvd player so check the region supported dvd's whcih you can play on your dvd player.

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?


Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .

Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific. Islands, Caribbean

Region 5 - Russia (former USSR), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia

Region 6 - China

Good luck.

What does wrong region mean? the player refuses to read and play certain cd's , it says,"wrong region".


It means The Disk Was Not Created In your country. They do this to make more money. Now if its a dvd player then you may be able to make it region free and play it just give me the model number. But if its a c.d you'll have to use your computer to make a copy of it.

Wrong regional disc


Hello mperona,

The reason you are receiving this message is due to the region settings on your dvd player. Dvd players use region settings to allow them to only play dvd's from certain parts of the world. Your dvd player's region settings do not match the region code of the dvd disc.

The only way is to make your dvd player multi region....you will need to post the make and model of your dvd player so I can search for a solution that will work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
