We have some titles in our catalogue that were imported from overseas. Certain DVD players will not accept and play these discs. It is neither a malfunction of your player nor a defect of our discs, but a legal restriction imposed by the larger movie companies. With this issue, the terms "zone" and "region" are interchangable. Australasia is counted as zone 4.
Certain DVD playing devices are "Multi zoned" or "multi regioned", and will play anything. Others are not, (termed "region locked"). This has nothing at all to do with the brand, the age, or the expense of the machine. X-boxes and Playstations will NOT play these out-of-zone discs.
Computers can play these discs, but this is entirely down to the software used. If asked at a "region setting counter" screen, to select a zone, DO NOT CLICK OK.
If you rent a title that has this issue, please contact us, and we will do our best to make it right.
