Notes on DVD mode
Video-DVDs generally feature a regional code. You will find the details of this either on the DVD cover or on the DVD itself.
The CD/DVD drive of the PCM 3 detects the respective regional code of the Video-DVD inserted. As per the "Regional Protection Code", it allows you to change the regional code up to five times.
Please contact your authorized Porsche dealer to find out how to change the regional code. You will find a list of regional codes in the section "Regional codes for Video-DVDs" on page 171.
