    What region code is my DVD player set on?
    We have just purchased a Mac 14.1.1 from a friend. After trying to play a dvd we got an error saying region codes do not match but nothing prompting us to change? How do we find out what region its currently set on?

    You need to give us Mac Specs, what OS you are running as well.

    Your Mac should be set for the region that it was bought in:

    Normally if you insert a dvd from a different region, iDVD will prompt you to change the region. However, you can only do this 5 times. After that it's set permanently. Your Mac may have had it's fifth change.
