My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

I have a samsung BD c5500 bluray player. When I try to play movies it says mismatch disk and region code. How can I fix this?


Providing that you have a legal DVD player that is meant to play discs in this country and that you have bought a legal disc (not an illegal bootleg copy) you might need to do a firmware update on player.

If player has internet connectivity you can do it directly on player - it should be a menu prompt to update firmware

if no internet connection is available on player you will need to contact Samsung and have them send firmware update to you on a disc and load it that way

If either disc or player is a bootleg or grey/black market purchase than that is the issue

Players will only play discs from the region they were made to work in

USA is region 1

good luck

DVD Player D1816 shows Wrong Regional Disc message


Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.

Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.

"wrong disc" message


Since the device is new, I suggest that you take it back to the shop, ask for a replacement and check it while in the shop to make sure its working. This is assuming that you made sure that you're trying to play the correct format discs. Consult the manual on which format DVD's it can support. Its multi-region so that can't be the problem, but its possible that you're trying to play other unsupported formats. Try also playing other discs - audio discs, DVDs, DIVX etc... make sure the disc isn't scratched badly. But the bottom line is you shouldnt have problems on the first day, take it back. Good luck!
