Why does it indicate 'wrong region'?


DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....

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

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.
