my Pioneer DVD-RW wouldn't detect that the DVD was in there. My DVD-RW on my desktop PC is Region 4, my Laptops DVD-ROM is Region 4, neither detected that this particular DVD was there. I couldn't play it with aything. My SHARP and SANYO DVD Player are Region 4 and didn't know there was a disc inserted. My JVC DVD player is Region 4 was the only one that detected the disc was there and played it. On the back of the disc it said Region 2-6 which i suppose means either Region 2 & 6 only or Region 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. It doesn't say anywhere about some machines may have playback problems nor did it say anything about it's copy controlled (which most DVD's are) the year of the DVD was 2002. It's the only DVD i've ever come across. Apart from one ages ago that wouldn't play in my PC which i had to use AnyDVD to play it, but AnyDVD failed with this DVD. I was going to contact the manufacturer about it but probably wouldn't be any point as they would think iwas trying to copy it which i wasn't. If i didn't have the right codect it usually tells you.
