There are 7 different regions 0 is region free and 1-6 are country codes. Your region 2 and america is region 1 so this is why the player isn't working with your discs. Usually you can hack/overide the region setting on some DVD players. Sometimes this can be done with the remote but sometimes the player has to be modded. This link will take you to a hack page for audiovox players. If theres a hack for your player then it'll be there.

Hi there

Unfortunately there isn't a code fore this, you can only play R1 DVD's on an R1 DVD Player and you can only play R2 DVD's on a R2 DVD Player. You can find DVD's that are R2, that is all you can do.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Our Sony DVD player will not playimported DVDs from the UStates


1) those DVDs are coded in Region 1(Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda)
you will have to change the region code on the dvd-rom to region 1

2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)

3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned

windows xp/2000/98/me
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software

Unable to play region 2 DVDs


There are sites with firmware that you burn to a disc to unlock the DVD player. Do a google search to find one.
