    Some players allow you to do it using the normal remote that comes with it. What make and model is it?

I need a way to play dvd's from China. My wife brought her english training dvd's from china but we can not use them on a region 1 dvd. My dvd drive is a matshita DVD +- RW UJ890


Hi, you are partly correct, your region 1 player is also in NTSC format, other regions are in PAL format...... So even if you converted your player to multi region or bought a multi region player it still would not play a PAL disk which the Chinese disks would be! The only way you could do this is to buy a multi region PAL/NTSC format DVD player.

Cant play a region 1 dvd


The DVD and *and* the DVD player both have a region code embedded in each. A map of the regions used appears below:

steve_con_2.gif

Regions 0, 7, 8 & 9 do not appear as they represent "No Region Coding" "Unused" "Cruise Lines" and "Region Free" respectively.

A DVD player will only play a matching region code DVD, or the player OR DVD have one (or more) 0, 7, 8, or 9 region codes imbedded. You'll not be able to change the DVD code, but you *might* be able to change the region code of your player. Computer DVD players can sometimes be flashed to a new region more readily than the entertainment system DVD players, but it relies solely on the manufacturer and model of the player. Some require file be downloaded and run, while others require a DVD or CD be created and played with a specific file saved on it. Here's a link to results that discuss how to change the region code for DVD players. You'll need to know at the very least the manufacturer and model number of you player to begin.

I hope this helps and good luck! If you found this helpful, please rate my reply 4 "thumbs up". Thanks!

I have bought a dvd from America and it is saying error region codes. Can you please help?


Your dvd is probably region 1 which is US and Canada this is known as NTSC format. Your player, because you are elsewhere, only plays PAL formats (usually Europe and such). Unfortunately the only way to play the DVD is to buy a NTSC compatible player.

My wife bought a TV series on DVD while she was in the Middle East and now that she brought them back to Canada we are not able to play them. How do we deal with this?


Region-free DVD players are sold through various venues.Try playing it in a computer DVD player/burner. Some burners are region-free. Some software can copy your purchased disks, removing the region code in the process.

Changing the region code


Hi,

You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.
