I was justs ent a DVD-R RW what ever from a guy in the UK. I remember their being a setting or something about how UK DVD differ from USA DVDs.

Long story short I cant read the disk. It goes into my Drive (A tray) and The drive does not even see it. So I cant get the info off the disk. I have a super drive in my mac so what do I do? I need what is on the disk.

O. M. G. !!!!!!!!!

Please do not upset the new world order.

Some say the Hebrews did it. Others say it is the Nazis. There are rumors saying it is the International Monetary fund, or men in black helicopters. Liberals say conservatives are responsible, and Conservatives say Obama is not born in the USA and he did it.

Long ago, the world was divided into eight regions. Your DVD was made in one region. And you live in another region. You can switch your computer region, but watch out! If you do it enough you will go blind! Or at least your computer will!

I was smart. I did it until I needed glasses!

Please destroy this message as soon as you read it, or the people who divided the earth into eight regions might do the same to YOU!

O. M. G. !!!!!!

You are already on the list for just trying to defy them.

If you have a DVD that's region coded for a different region than your DVD drive, you should get an error saying it's the wrong region when you try to play it, but you can still see the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders if you browse the disc.

If you aren't getting that and really can't see the disc when it's in, you most likely have a bad disc. VLC isn't going to help with that, nor will changing your drive's region code.

Posted this before but it seems to have vanished in the ether...

I hate to say it in these much more enlightened standards based compatability times but I get a lot of disks from customers in my job and there are still problems with "naughty" open session and/or multi session burned disks that won't open on some systems and things burned by unusual apps that use strange "proprietory" setups... and that is without the problems of "off kilter" burners that just plain don't read on other drives...

Ser: That's why I always do complete burns on discs. I don't care how much a piece of software might tout the wonders of reburning...there are too many headaches to be had. If I want to reuse a CD-RW, I just erase it and reburn.

Alas, many people do fall prey to the marketing... :/

(And these days, I rarely ever burn discs...that was a pretty short lived era for me.)
