DVD is most likely locked to a certain region, and the disc you are trying to play is of a different region

SOURCE: Changing region on a DVD player

You did not specify what kind of DVD player this is? Since you said player, and not drive, then I will assume this is a dvd player you hook up to your TV, not install in a computer.

Simple answer, you can not change the region code on a DVD player, unless there is a known hack listed on a website.

Therefore, your only option, is get a region free dvd player. They are cheap and easy to get on amazon.

here is one for $30:

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


To change the Region code on your 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 DVD 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 that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Says wrong region with some dvd's


Check the owner's manual to see what region your dvd player is for. What ever that region is is the only region it will play.

Example: If you have a region 1 dvd player and a region 4 dvd, it will not play on that player. The regions must match. The dvd usually has the region it is for listed on the back of the dvd case near the bottom.

Also, Any dvd's that are Region 0 or are labelled "Region Free" will play on any player.

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

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.

Probably can't, they are encoded for a reason. If you have a DVD drive on your computer MOST video players will play them.I use Nero and haven't had any trouble.
