Bought a new dvd it will not play, its giving me a regions code error. what is the code, and how do i put it in the dvd player?


A regions code error means that the player is not compatible to play a DVD from a different region than what it was designed to play. For example, if you purchased your player in the U.S. or Canada then it is a region 1 player and therefore will play DVD's from region 1.

Here is a region map http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/dvd/regions/regions.php

There are however, ways around this as some manufacturers of players have made a way to be able to allow the end user to unlock the software codecs that are for different regions. You will have to search for an online source that has a download or a procedure to follow to unlock your player.

" Wrong Region " error displayed while trying to play DVD's


Hi,

Most branded DVD's have a country code programmed in it.
There is no code to reset it.
It is better you buy a local chines make kinda dvd palyer. It will play all and comes cheap.

I bought a DVD and I played it on my laptop. It worked on the laptop but when i put it into the DVD player it wouldn't play. So I tryed playing the DVD in the PC and it also worked on there. Again I...


DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??
