Sony DVD Player

  Border View 11:33 14 Aug 08

I have a Sony DVD player which I thought played all region DVDs. Just bought a DVD off E-bay but when I came to play it - got the message that playing was prohibited because of region. When I tried it on my computer turns out to be Region 2.

Would welcome your comments.

Could be a copy and regardless how good a copy is or any dvd burned on a pc or dvd recorder is not guaranteed to play on every Player

Yes it seems genuine enough its Finding Nemo 2 disc Collector's Edition In all the correct case, cover and even an outside slide over cover.

Ok is it a 2 disc set and neither will play anyway you can try on another player just to eliminate yours as the prob

Yep tried on two DVD players with same result. Tried it on computer and had to change settings in Media Player to Region 2 when it played OK.

Yes I tried it on two different DVD players with same result. No I am in UK and therefore Region 1 or 4

Sorry got it round the wrong way. When I put it in my computer the message comes up "Your system is set to DVD Region 2. To play this DVD set your system to Region 1 or Region 4.

No mention of PAL that I can find on the box but there is NTSC. Dont know what that is
