It might be a different region but it should play on your computer :)

I think Samcrawford is correct. It is probably because of the region, although most DVD players in other countries are multi-region. There are
websites that have codes to change some players to multi-region players.
You can find them by searching for DVD player hacks. You look for the
model number of your player and can sometimes find a 4 or 5 digit number with which you can make your player play disks from anywhere. I have
done this with 3 DVD players. I just bought a new player a week ago and
changed it to all regions so that I can play some disks that I have from
other countries. It will not harm your machine.

Also, if the disk is from the U.S. ---region 1, it might not play on your computer unless you change the region in your computer's media player.

Ulla - you need an NTSC player or to order the DVDs in PAL format.
But they should play on your computer.

Did the same thing, received a 'Blue Ray' from Amazon instread of a regular DVD, thinking about finding a person who has a Blue Ray player and giving it to them, ordering another one for myself.
