That's what Krow said is the problem though, that the player is region-free, and thus the DVD wouldn't take it.
Feh. Region-encoding is just this stupid thing they do because they stagger the release of everything going over to Europe, so that people can't buy a whole bunch of something like Thirteen Ghosts on DVD and sell them in England where it's still out in theaters.
(Thirteen Ghosts just being an example, as I saw "new release in theaters" posters for it when I was in London and Paris, and it's out on DVD over here. From what I've seen of it and heard about it, why anyone would go to the trouble for that movie is beyond me.)
