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.

Wrong regional disc


Hello mperona,

The reason you are receiving this message is due to the region settings on your dvd player. Dvd players use region settings to allow them to only play dvd's from certain parts of the world. Your dvd player's region settings do not match the region code of the dvd disc.

The only way is to make your dvd player multi region....you will need to post the make and model of your dvd player so I can search for a solution that will work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

DVD Player D1816 shows Wrong Regional Disc message


Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.

Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.

Kenwood DVD player 5 speaker system


There is nothing wrong with it, it is set to only play in the region it was purchased from. That is how all DVD players are made, with regional settings. No repair is going to help, you just need a DVD player from the proper region to play those disc's.

Coby 224 wrong disc


you can reset the settings through the menu, its under the advanced option in the menu. however, its not a regional error, if it was in the wrong region, it would say wrong region and not wrong disk, try putting the region back to 1 or 0 or 9, 1 is USA, 9 and 0 are all regions.
