Go on e-bay and purchase a region free DVD player for cheap. Wait for Christmas and re-gift your UK player to some other poor bastard.

When purchasing a DVD I don't understand what is meant by 'region'. Please tell me which 'region' the UK is


The UK, Europe and Japan use Region 2. Region 1 discs are used in the USA or Canada. These codes control where the discs can be played, and you cannot normally buy DVDs in a different region and play them at home.

REGION 1,DVD


Region 1 dvds are usually USA/Canada dvds and will play on any dvd purchased in those countries. You didn't state your location so I don't know where you are. Google your location for dvd region to make sure.

I have a LG DC593W DVD player and I want to be able to play DVDs in Australia that I buy from the UK and USA, what is the code I use please?


you can change the "zone" in your DVD player to that of the UK / USA but then it may not play your local DVDs .. you can only change the zone 5 times so you dont want to be changing it back and forth .... you could have two units set up with one for UK and one for local zones .. or its sometimes possible to modify the software in the player to be "code free" .. there are lots of machines that are for sale that are already modified or you might find a mod for your present machine .. that way it will play anything .. to find whats available you can google "dvd code free"

Cannot play dvds as they do not matcth the local code ?


This sounds like the DVDs are from outside the UK. The UK uses Region2 dvds and the USA and others use Region1. It is possible to get dvd players that play both or use your computer to play them. It should say on the disc or box what Region it is.

U.S. PS2 plays U.S. PS2 games/dvds.
your PS2 will not play U.K. PS2 games/dvds.
PS2s are region specific.

DVD/CD play incompaibility


write the publishers - they're using more complex methods of preventing people from legally watching their legally purchased DVDs on anything other than sanctioned standalone players.

Wrong region, all I get on screen.


http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

Try to unlock the region on your player using the folowing link. DVDs and DVD players have different region codes in different countries from 0-6 e.g. USA is region 1 and UK is region 2. So a USA DVD would not play on a UK DVD player. Hope this helps.

HI,
it depends on whether the drive is multi-region ?
Some drives are region Set, i.e Region 1 ( NTSC-USA )
Region 2 ( UK PAL )
Most Players Are Region Set, To the country they are purchased in, you can sometimes set the player to become, multi-region, via various buttons on the remote or by the front panel.
I offer a service to unlock 99% of DVD Players, to play all or many regions.
We do have a charge for this Service.
Many Thanks mike @ Compurepair.
