Regional player error on Cyberlink Power DVD

I cannot play a DVD on my Cyberlink Power DVD DX system. I get the player region error. However, I have played other movies on this computer. The DVD in question is a rental from one of those Redbox vending machines in the grocery store.

    Just got a new Dell with (boo, hiss) Vista. Cyberlink will only play one of my DVDs. All the others (so far) have gotten Region Area messages. What's up?

Check regional code dvds player


That because you are trying to play a disc not meant for your region. These units are not designed to play disks worldwide.For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

All DVDs do not play in the player. Get No Disc error. Some of them are recognised. How to change regional settings?


Greetings - The playing some discs problem could have to do with a dirty laser lens and you might want to invest in an inexpensive CD/DVD lens cleaning disc. Also could be that some of your discs are dirty or scratched.

Regarding regional settings, there's no way to try to help you without the make, model and ideally - revision - of the player. Some players have region workarounds and some don't.

Come back with that info and someone will try to help you with a regional fix.

Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Apparently they are locked to region 4 and I have bought region 1 DVDs so they won't play


In most models the unit cannot converted to multi-regions.So it will play only in the specified region in which it is applicable to.But in some unit models there is a procedure to turn the unit to multi region so it can play all region dvd.On all models the procedure to convert the unit to multi region is different.As you have not mentioned the exact model number of your unit.t will not be easy to give exact details.If in case there is a procedure to convert your unit to multi region.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I cannot play dvd's with power dvd dx-display output error


Try going to the Dell webpage to see if there are any updates for the software. It should be found under the support for my system link. Reason I say Dell rather than Cyberlink website is that Dell uses a "special" version bundled in their systems. There is probably an update required or it is missing the proper codecs to run. Hope this helps.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

Regional codes


The DVD region cannot be changed more than 5 times without 3rd party software which is very hard to find now as it has even been restricted in Europe.
You can look for "dvd region css free" online but you may not be able to get it anymore.

Good luck!
