The most likely issue is that the region code setting on your PS3 is not set to the United States region code. To change this:
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from whatever it is to "United States". The region code for USA is 1.

I was just wondering if Magnavox Dvd/VCr combo MWR20V6 is a multi-region dvd player?


all dvd players are region free when you first buy them, they set the region themselves, after 5 dvd's have been played on them. So if you had a european dvd player and played 5 USA dvd's on it , it would lock to the USA region and you would be unable to play european dvd's on it. Exactly what a friend did many years ago when he bought a load of american dvd films from someone and played them on his brand spanking new dvd player :)

Trying to play dvd This disc cannot be played. The region code is not correct.


The dvd you are trying to play is most likely not for the region in which your PS3 plays them. If your PS3 is a USA Region player then you can only plays disks that are from USA Region.

When I inserted a disc on my home Sony DVD player my screen said" Playback prohibited due to area restrictions". It does play, however, on my office computer DVD player. Thanks, Natalie


DVDs are encoded to a particular region and will only play on dvd players that are encoded to accept that region. Usually a computer dvd reader is region free meaning that it can play DVDs from any region without a problem. For example the USA is region 1 and Austrailia is region 5. A disc made for Australia (region 5) will not play in a standard USA player (region 1). see this link on Wikipedia for more information HERE . The good news is that sometimes you can set up your DVD player to accept discs from any region. If you are interested let me know the exact model of your DVD player and I will look it up. Please rate me well if this has helped.
