when you burn a dvd it is region free.i assume they are playing it on a standalone dvd player.region 2 disks and region 4 are compatible.they will play on each others machines. your problem is you cant produce a region 4 disk just region need to find out the make and model of there dvd player then look here click here for a region free hack.if there is one it will make there dvd player region free and they will be able to play the disc .if there is not one the only option is to buy a new dvd player.the cheap £40 pacific ones in asda can be made region free and will play anything you put in them.hope this helps darren
