Most DVD players are restricted to a certrain zone. e.g. europe is zone 2. If your DVD is from a different zone, say USA or asia, it will not play. This is so the makers of DVDs can release different films to different markets in order to maximize profit.

How do i make it all regions i cant play dvds from u.s.a. is there a code i can put in and make it into a multi regions blu ray player.

I read a little in the user manual of your player and found this options:

DVD Rating
Blocks playback of rated DVD based on their
content. (Not all discs are rated.)

[Rating 1-8]
Rating one (1) has the most restrictions and
rating eight (8) is the least restrictive.
If you select [Unlock], parental control is not
active and the disc plays in full.

Maybe this is your problem. This can be found on page 28 of the english manual.

If this doesn't help, try do update your firmware:

go to the tab: drivers and software - Firmware update for BD550/ BD570/ BD590

follow the steps in the PDF file to upgrade your firmware for the Player.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you should contact the LG support.

I hope this was helpful

I have a sumsung dvd-L300 portable player. Do I need a converter or transformer to use it in Europe?

I think so, DVD region codes are a DRM scheme. DVD videodiscs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of theworld in which they can be played.

Thecommercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be soldin a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region0 discs are not restricted).

so if you want to making the DVD region free,watch and copy multi region-coded DVD on any DVD player and any DVDplayer software, back up protected DVD to computer and convert DVDMovie to play on iPod iPhone PSP, et portable players, you have toremove DVD region code.

Here we have one great software "Daniusoft DVD Ripper"which can remove region code from any DVD. Not just remove DVD regioncode and copy DVD to computer with 1:1 lossless quality, Daniusoft DVDRipperis also capable of converting DVD Movie to other Video auidoformat to play on portable players like iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP,Blackberry, etc.

A DVD bought in Australia cannot be played in a samsung htz310i dvd player in the UK

The world has been fenced off into areas by these manufacturers, and you Aus DVD is security locked to Code 4.
The UK has a different Area code, and your Samsung was setup to play only DVD,s sold in Europe.
However a knowledgeable friend with a computer can play another areas disk by changing the area code in the computer.
