Via this comment on a recent John Scalzi Whatever post comes this explanation.

To an extent I have been able to dodge this level of annoyance by stopping the DVD and then accessing the menu. It doesn't always work, but often enough for me to try it out of habit.

Though the diagram leaves out the "insert pirate DVD, discover virus eating your system" and other little issues.

Wasn't aware of that risk but then I really only play DVDs on the actual stand alone player.

The DVD drives on my laptops have always been region coded and I've never really been game to flash the ROMs to fix that.

Although I might do so on the currently deceased* laptop that I'm planning to revive on Ubuntu.

*Well, mostly dead. I've replaced the hard drive so the rest should be fine once get an OS on there.
