Q: “My cousin sent me lots of Blu-ray discs abroad, I want to play them on my Samsung Blu-ray player, but fail to open it and get error message like Blu-ray region code incorrect. Any solutions? Need your help!”
Blu-ray region control operates in a similar way to RCE on DVD discs. The Blu-ray player software allows programs that run from the disc to query the player to determine the player region. If the region does not match the disc, the program instructs the player to display a message saying that there is a region mismatch and that the disc cannot be played. Blu-ray region codes are separated as below:
|A||North America, Central America, South America, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia|
|B||Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand|
|C||Pakistan, India, China, Russia, Central and South Asia|
