The situation I have is thsi: I have several DVDs, they all play in my computer DVD bruner/player. However, only one plays in my standalone DVD player (Sony DVP-NS50P). The error I get is “Playback prohibited by area limitations”. I used the Nero info tool, and according to it ALL the DVDs have the region set to “All”, so it seems to me theoretically they should be able to play in my area 1 standalone DVD player. So I have two main questions:
Is the “Playback prohibited…” message necessarily mean the DVD player is not liking the region code on the DVD, or could it be a symptom of some other problem with the player and DVD?
What is the best way to proceed to further diagnose why I am getting this error on my standalone player, when I should not be?
Thanks for any help.
