    I thought I would share my experiences with the forum regarding the purchase of Monsters Inc. from CDwow. I ordered a region 2 disc but to my surprise on the back of the DVD box cover it shows region number 4.

    CDwow has just informed me that Normally a Region 4 DVD will not play on a Region 2 player however in this
    case, although the specification reads that it is Region 4, it is in fact totally Region 2 (UK) compatible. It is from a new range of titles which are "dual encoded" to allow a much broader range of customers to watch the more popular titles.

    Hope this info helps other forum users.

    P.S. Excellent service from CDwow

    ;)

    I got the R4 from CD-Wow as well. I did complain to them that they were explicitly advertising it as R2. I considered it to be a little dishonest, but as it plays on my R2 only PC I'll live with it. Our main player is multi-region anyway, but I might want to lend it to friends, if my daughter will let me. She's getting it for Xmas so I haven't been able to watch it all yet.

    I've only just seen that in the small print, but it does say Region: 2 (UK & Europe/Japan), which seems unambiguous to me.

    Whatever, as long as it plays where I need it :)

    Many, many R4 discs are dual-coded for R2 as well. It's more unusual to find one that's only R4.
