      I think the problem is the region code is wrong for your DVD player. This website here explains how they work pretty well: http://www.ilovedvd.co.nz/regioncodes.asp But to be simple - European DVD's won't work in an American/Canadian DVD player.

    Yeah, they are different region dvds. You need multi-region player to play them. Alternatively you can change the region of your computer dvd, but there is a limit to how many times you can do it...
