What is region protection?
Because DVD is subject to the same issues of piracy and market sharing that govern the entire video industry, DVD region encoding was introduced to set geopolitical boundaries for compatibility of DVDs and players. For instance, a DVD encoded for Region 1 can only be played on a Region 1 (U.S. and Canada) DVD player. Currently there are eight global DVD regions, and DVD manufacturers can encode their product to play in any combination of regions.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.
Can region protection be removed?
Most DVD Players can be made region free with a special code that is put in using your remote.
Using this book to remove region protection.
Look up the manufacturer of your DVD player then simply find your model number and follow the instructions carefully.
