You havent really provided enough information but I can tell you all dvd players cannot read all types of dvd disks and the most common zone i have found they cannot read is 2. but as i said they are others, depending on the name brand. you have to know that home burned dvd's are the most common to not work in zone 2.

My Presario CQ61 has changed DVD zones the maximum number of times allowed. It is now set to a zone that prohibits me playing anything from Australia.

Copied from somwhere else...

I came across a web site called which tells how to reset the region codes for software DVD players.
" Q: How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also 'patch' your DVD drives firmware, you can also try a patched DVD drive firmware (it is freeware, but may be a bit tricky and 'dangerous').
Q: How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie (freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free. "
Side note: firmware is "miniature" software which runs an electronic device. Some electronic devices have updatable firmware that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site and re-programmed into the device. This is referred to as flashing the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) or EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). A word of warning: if a firmware upgrade is interrupted due to a power outage or computer freezeup, the device may cease to function.

What does it mean when my dvd player says wrong region??

DVD's are coded to play in different parts of the world. Each DVD player is set up to recognise these codes. Most are set up to recognise only the region code of the area it was made for. For example Region 1 is for the USA and Region 2 is UK and parts of Europe. A DVD player made for the USA market would not be able to play any other discs with a Region code other than 1. And so on... This was done for the film industry benefit so that films can be released at later dates in different parts of the world without everybody seeing it on DVD issued in the USA.
However most DVD players can be "hacked" by a combination of keys allowing the user of say a Region 2 player to change it to another region. Some can also be changed to Region 0 which means it should play any disc.
How to change the Region code can be found by putting the model number of the DVD into a search engine and the words 'region code'. Some can be found on this site too.

Turn the player on and open the disc tray. Press [CLEAR] followed by [1][3][6][9] and one of the keys [0]...[8] corresponding to the region you want to set the player for (1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on, press 0 for Region 0 or Region Free). Turn the player off then on again for the changes to take effect.

To verify the region code, press [SETUP] followed by [1][3][7][9]. A screen will then pop up with the firmware info and the current region code setting. Using [SETUP][1][3][6][9] did not work for me.

To modify the region, turn on the unit and open the disk tray. Using the remote, press [CLEAR][1][3][6][9][zone code] and cycle power on the unit (not necessary to unplug the unit, simply use the front left <POWER> button. Example: Turn on; open tray; [CLEAR] [1][3][6][9][0]; unit OFF, unit ON and you'll get a zone free DVD player.

To confirm the zone code, turn on DVD player, (unit may or may not have a disc, check that the disc tray is closed, and press [SETUP][1][3][7][9]. You'll have all the firmware information (Version xx.xx.xx.xx SUB-VER xx.xx.xx.xx;
8032 xx.xx.xx.xx; Servo xx.xx.xx.xx; RISC xx.xx.xx.xx; DSP xx.xx.xx.xx; Region Code 0) That's that final "0" that you are looking for!

Report your Video shop to RiSA. They should legally only carry zone 2 DVD's as a rental copy and a sale copy has two different licenses of use. If they have zone 1 DVD's it means they are bypassing the local supply chain (ie getting it outside South Africa) and damaging the industry as a whole.
