I want to buy a region 3 dvd but im not sure if my compact will play it?


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Can play a movie using a dvd


You can play a DVD movie disc on your DVD player provided the Region code on the disc is the same as the Region code that is configured on the DVD player.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or youneed to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.

Dell n5010 dvd drive does not recognise dvd but will play cd's


Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.

Broken Hitachi Xbox 360 DVD Drive


First of all the cause is that this error is caused by the adhesive that holds a small magnetic washer heating up and allowing the washer to affix itself to the metal top of the drive. After this occurs, the system can no longer spin the disk as necessary. A great but temporary fix is to get a old cd or dvd, get a piece of paper put the cd/dvd into the console, and when the disk begins to spin jam the piece of paper into the top of the silver dvd drive. You will hear a grinding noise keep it going for about 15 seconds. That is the fix. A good precaution after the fix is to get a cleaning disk with optional fluid and go through the cleaning routine a good ten times. I would say if you have spare cash get a replacement laser module.
Peace.
