This disc is not formatted to play in this region?

I purchased 2 Asian DVD's on ebay. I received the DVD and when I played on my Macbook pro, it played the trailers fine but when it came to the main movie, it said "This disc is not formatted to play in this region".

I have a DVD player too and some Asian movie DVD's don't play on the DVD player but it always played on my Macbook pro. This is the first time I am seeing this error in my Macbook pro. Is there anything I could do like changing some settings or so to play the DVD?

Thanks.

PS: The Application I used was DVD Player. I also tried VLC and Mac Blu-ray Player.

There are 3 regions for DVDs, but not all DVD are region protected, so that could be why it wasn't a problem before.
