I think this is the column to ask about my problem, but if the moderators feel otherwise, please relocate it as you feel appropriate. I have a 2 year old Rotel RDV-985 multiregion DVD player and so far have had no problem whatsoever with over 400 R1, R2, R4 or R5 DVDs, including some 50 'Bollywood' Indian movies, which are usually labelled "Region Free NTSC". I recently purchased the DVD of the recent Indian blockbuster "Aankhen", also similarly labelled 'Region-Free NTSC'. When I tried to play it, my Rotel failed to recognise it and spat it out. Thinking I had a faulty disc, I informed the dealer (whom I know personally) and he sent me a replacement before returning the original ...but the new DVD turned out to have exactly the same problem. Then I discovered that both DVDs played perfectly on my PC player!. When I got back to the dealer, he felt this might be a "software incompatibility problem" but did not know how to rectify it. He will accept a return/refund of the DVDs, but I want to see the film. Could any forum friend please tell me if there is any way that I can change the setting on my Rotel to enable this DVD to play? I'll be eternally grateful for any advice. For your info, the DVD is made by VIDEO SOUND INC of Edison, NJ and has the catalog number VSVS0402. Underneath this catalog number, MF417 is printed.
