Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

Bad DVD message


I'm assuming that you made sure the disc is free of smudges and dust. It's possible that between now and the last time you tried, you ended up with a dirty lens - try another disc to be sure it's only this one that has problems. If another DVD has trouble too, you need a lens cleaner kit.

My DVD Player ( ONIDA DFX-7100) is now unable to play any VCDs. I have tried many VCDs which were earlier working fine but now they won'tplay. The player keeps displaying the ''loading'' message and after...


Have you changed programs that you use to burn VCDs?
(Perhaps the program was updated?)

Perhaps trying a different program to make the VCD will work for you.

Also; when is the last time you cleaned the DVD player lens?

When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc


The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

Dvd player will not play dvd comes up with message "playback prohibited by area limitations"


I don't know where you are, so I will have to speak generally. DVDs made for the USA market will not play in Europe, because they have different area codings. This is about copyright owners controlling copyright. Many DVD players in Europe are actually hacked to get around this.

It isn't just Europe and the USA either, there are several areas that cannot share DVDs across borders.

It would seem that you have got a camera that is set to a different area than your DVD player. That is what is causing this error message. Sometimes you can change one or the other from a menu (you can do this a limited number of times with a DVD disk drive installed in a computer). If it is a stand alone DVD player, I would try to get it hacked to be "region free". Sometimes you can find information about this by searching the web. I can't advise further because you have not given make and model of either your camera or your DVD player, or your location, or where you bought the equipment.

Hi:
Check the region code in your menu, region codes are for different country codes embedded in the system hardware for playing different countries DVD's.

Disc error message


Computer Burned discs are a grey area for some players[different firmware/chipsets] There is a list on the web of players and what they will play a Google/Yahoo will reveal. Also checkout the manual that came with the player.
