Question about Audiovox D1710 Portable DVD Player with Screen
What does this mean when the DVD player says "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.

SOURCE: Wrong Regional Disc
DVDs have region codes to prevent black-market selling of them and
whatnot. Where did you buy the DVD? Where did you buy your DVD player?
I don't think so. What if you moved to another country? What if you decided to take your player on your yacht and sit out in international waters watching DVDs?
Try deregioning the hardware. Get the make and model number and enter it with "de-region" or "DVD region hack" into google. You may find instructions for de-regioning the player. It usually consists of taking any discs out, restarting the machine and then entering a number code that allows you to set the region to "0". Most of the cheaper, Chinese-made DVD players have a work-around like this. Post the model and maybe I can find it for you.
