"cannot play disc due to area restrictions"

This discussion thread has 5 messages.

burned this movie from a single layer .bin file, wont play on my dvd player due to the "cannot play disc due to area restrictions" area message (it is a brand new dvd player)

the dvd plays fine on the PC using powerDVD, though noticed that the audio will not play using Windows Media Player.

I tried using Nero Recode and reburning the DVD, but with the same results with my DVD player.

is there a program i can use to extract the raw video without quality loss, then reburn with a program like Nero vision?

thanks for your help!

Could be the format of the film. PAL is Europe and NTSC is USA.

Make sure it is compatible with your player/TV.

That's not relevant, we're not talking about your Xbox drive. They are Region Free, I think, so that would explain it...
