No, DVDs are coded by regions. Most DVDs sold in a region will only let you watch DVDs from that region. Some DVD players will play from any region, and most will allow you to change the region once or twice and hen locks in on that region. Computer systems will normally allow you to watch any region DVD.
Check the user instructions for your DVD player to see what region it was made for.If the DVD has a Region 0 code, it can be played anywhere.

Does Infiniti FX45's navigation system and DVD entertainment system work in Europe particularly in Hungary?

I drive a FX45 in Germany currently so I can say this . . . No. The Infiniti navidation DVD does not contain map data for Europe. If you buy a Europe OEM DVD from Zenrin that will presumably not work either - county codes are different for the disk and your DVD reader. A solution could be to buy the Europe DVD from Zenrin and use DVD ripping software to rip the DVD's data and then re-burn it to another disk with the US country code (1), then it may work in your FX. Let me know if you try the ripping method. I drive a FX45 in Germany currently so I can say this . . . No. The Infiniti navidation DVD does not contain map data for Europe.

Can a DVD bought in the USA be seen in France on a French DVD player?

In short no. France and much of Europe use a different system for their TV's. the US use NTSC and Europe uses PAL. They are not compatible. The only way to get around it is to either copy the DVD to your computer and re-burn it in PAL format; or make sure that the person you are sending the DVD to has a multi-region DVD player.

Can a DVD created on a US computer be played in Europe on a DVD player?

A commercial DVD purchased in the US cannot be played on a regular DVD player in Europe because of region coding. Major movie studios around the world have forced this coding on discs to allow the studios to release the movie in different countries at different times. If you burn the DVD yourself, your software may allow you to select the region coding for the new disc. You could then allow it to be played anywhere. A DVD player know as a 'region-free' player would allow any disc to be played.

No, they have not. However they have aired in Canada, and these episodes are easy to find on the internet, and you are not required to download the video; just watch it.

What would cause a DVD player recorder to play a DVD or record a show with a green tint?

Though this may not be the only reason for a green tint, one common reason is because the DVD you are trying to play is from a foreign country. In America, all AV equipments (TV, DVD player / recorder etc) are made to play NTSC format videos that are consisted of 29.97 frames per second and have the resolution of 720 x 480 pixels. Commercial DVD movies sold on the US soil conform to this standard. DVDs from Europe and AV devices sold in Europe are for PAL format which only has 25 frames per second and the resolution of 720 x 540 pixels. You may well get a green tint if you are playing a DVD that was recorded in Europe or with an equipment made in Europe. If the DVD is not a 'commercial movie', you should be able to play it fine using computer's DVD drive.

A Wii from the US will play in Europe, but you would need to buy all the games from US as well. Each of those games is coded for a region of the world and will only work with a compatible system coded from that region. That is the same for PS3s and XBOX 360 and many DVD and Blu-Ray players.
