I cannot find a multi regional DVD player anywhere!! What do I do with my 300 DVD'? I was thinking to bring my DVD player and just getting a different power cable, but then it would n't work due to the difference in voltage.

Where in the US can I get a Multi-regional DVD??



TIRED OF LOOKING :ranger:

Multiregion DVD player

Keep your DVD's, I just did a generic search on Google "Multiregion DVD player" and there are several US companies that pop up you can order from online.

I would stick with one of the major brands like Sony, Panasonic (pre-modded) as I don't know how good some of the unbranded players that come up would be?

Your other choice as you mentioned is to get a transformer, I would probably avoid this as it may work out more expensive and you might find you get one that hums and is more of a hinderance than any good. Plus you then still couldn't play any DVD's you buy in the US on your UK base player.

Popular Electronics in Chicago came up on searching and looked promising..

Didn't think this would be my first post but hey hope it helps :)

OMG? Really? I not techno savvy. I have a iphone 4 and blackberry and can work it, but I'd need to know when to add the 9999 code etc.

I have a few 7in portable DVD players - the type you plug into the cigarette lighter socket in the car to keep the kids occupied on long road trips. They all play all types of DVD's. I can even hook the thing up to my TV at home.

I can also play all types of DVD's on my laptop.

Another option is to check on amazon for multi-region DVD players.

I went onto amazon.com and searched via the USA version and saw a Phillips DVD player which maybe the answer to my problem.
Thank you all. I do have another technical problem, but I'll start a new topic.

Cheers everyone x

I agree with Davis1. I bought the cheapest Phillips DVD player ($30) and it's easy to make it region free to play DVDs from any region.

As soon as I arrived in the US I bought a blu-ray via amazon, with no regional settings - plays dvds and blurays from all over the world, and it was the cheapest one they had.

LG BD640.

Had to check on Amazon to find my old order and then saw for the first time it was "from" a seller named All Region Free LLC. Seems they specialise in this.
