    I am being prompted when I put some discs in to select a region code. This one is a Criterion blu-ray from the USA so I knew to select Region A, but is this normal or expected behavior? If I can't find an A on the case how can I be sure if it's Region A or Region-free? This is the disc summary, log is attached if helpful

    Total size: 22934976 sectors (44794 MBytes)
    Video Blu-ray label: BRIGHTER_SUMMER_DAY_A_D2
    Media is AACS protected!

    This is normal. Automatic detection does not work with all discs:
    Code:
    Note: automatic detection of region code not possible with this disc.
    
    If it is bought in an "A" region (US, Criterion) select "A".

    That's what I figured. It's just I have another movie that I bought here but on the blu-ray.com listing it says playback is region free: https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Red-Cliff-Part-I-and-Part-II-Blu-ray/8746/ so in that case I would select disc is region free? Or does that mean it wouldn't matter which region I select when the dialog box comes up upon disc insertion?

    That might work, but a safer bet would be to specify the region of the disc where you got it.
