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.

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.

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.

This is for US release. It will be released in November or 2008. Just in time for holiday shoppers. Check your local DVD supplier for an exact date.

A Canadian DVD (region 1) should not work on a European DVD player (region 2). There are six DVD region codes. A DVD from region 1 (which is for the US and Canada) will not play in a player from region 2 (Europe, Japan, South Africa and the Middle East).
