    A friend of mine bought me a DVD from Hong Kong, but my DVD player won't let me play on my TV. I think it's because of the regional format restriction. Is there any way that I can play on my DVD player?

    my guess is you would need to convert it from PAL to NTSC before your dvd player can play that. either that, or are you sure its a real DVD? maybe its an SVCD?

    Or it could be a different region, as Captain Morgan said.

    You'll probably have to get a region free dvd player if you want it to work, or find a way to get your computer dvd drive to rip it, and reburn it as region free.
