You may be able to find a DVD player without this limitation, but DVD players are regional in the world. In other words DVDs from europe dont work in our units here.

You may be able to watch it on a properly equipped computer however.

My husband has just fitted a new dvd player in our 2003 Discovery 2,But it is saying invalid region.He bought the dvd from Ebay & I was sent from the USA.Do we need some sort of reset code??


DVD players designed for the US are set for Region 1 and cannot be used with DVD's that are from other regions such as Great Britain and most of Europe which use Region 2 DVD's . What you need is a "Region Free" player which plays all regions or a player that plays your specific region. We live in the US but watch many British DVD series so use.a Region Free player as they are Region 2 and we are in Region 1.

maybe you can return the player or at least get some sort of credit for it towards the correct region player. If you are unsure of your region, just Google it.

WHAT DOES wrong region MEAN?


It means the wrong region will not play your dvd disc at your present location, so if you moved from another country to your present location the disc will not play.

My son brought a disk over the Internet he is unable to play it


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

for DVDs you are in region 4, america is in region 1
the only other region that it would play from is south america

so it will not work untill you find a dvd player that plays DVDs from all regions

i would try and get your money back from the company and say it doesnt work (act dumb) dont go saying its wrong region. just say it doesnt work

and if you want to watch the DVD buy it from austrailia

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

Wrong region


check with another dvd you know the region.
check same dvd on another (not region 2) player and see if itsn't working.
find if you have to follow special instruction to activate the "all region"feature.
find on line instructions do remove the region lock.
confirm make /model/ sn where you bought it and I can help to find instruction.
