Region codes prevent playback of DVDs in other geographical regions. If you receive a region error while playing a DVD with RealTimes, this means that the region code of the DVD does not match the region code of the DVD drive. ... You can play Region 2DVDs only on a DVD drive that is set for Region 2.
You can't change the DVD coding. That part is how the DVD is recorded. However, your Mac will play DVDs from another region. It just typically defaults to one region. I have deleted the DVD player software (and preferences files) before and reloaded it to play DVDs from another region. If you plan to regularly play DVDs from multiple regions, you might want to look for special DVD software that will read DVDs from multiple regions.
You have to go to the device manager of the operating system. List the hardware. Right click on the actual dvd drive and select the area that you want to change the region to. It will display the region.
Sorted it....followed following and changed to region 4 instaed of open to all regions and the the dvd's worked! Not sure why I had to change from multi-region to sole region 4 but why question when it works! Thanks
press remote keys in this order- open-setup-mute-last-next-this opens the service menu where you can select ALL regions or in my case changed to region 4 only!
1. Make sure that tray is empty and no DVD is in 2. Turn the unit off and the on again 3. Open the tray 4. On the remote, hit 9879 and the region code. For any-region support hit 0. 5. Very important - hit OK on the remote.
If the DVD player is capable of playing other regions, you should be able to change the region setting through the menu section. If there isn't an option to change the region settings in the menu, then your DVD player is not able to play other DVDs from other regions.
Try the following - it worked for me with my DCP850/37...
To fix, follow the instructions below. 1. Turn your machine on. 2 Press Setup on the remote. 3. Press Preference. 4. Type on remote 9653. The use arrow keys to select Region "0". 5. Then click OK and the machine should now recognise multiple region zone DVDs.
