    tanx....but tried that way already. The vlc programme doesn t override the region lock. I think it did in the earlier version but macbook pro 10.5.5


    Vendor: HL-DT-ST
    Model: DVDRW GS21N
    Firmware: SA15
    RPC-2 (region locked)
    State is SET

    With the RPC-1 ...the vlc overrides the lock as far as i know.

    ok so i tried that again with preferences to ignore and dropped the VTS_07_0.IFO files on the vlc icon...and this is what happened..

    maybe you understand all this???

    From a quick look at the log, it seems that there is a physical problem with this DVD.

    - Is it scratched?
    - Have you successfully played it before?
    - Does it work on another player / computer / OS?

    Oh, and another thing: use VLC's File>Open disc to read the DVD, that might help.


    Side note: next time, use a service like Pastebin to place the logfiles, as putting them into a forum post means that people have to wade through it every time that they want to view the thread.
