Region codes on DVD ROMS are programmed into the firmware on the DVD ROM reader. Not sure this can be done from the diagnostic control panel up front.
Your other option is to create region-free DVDs of the movies that your passengers want to watch. You are already half-way there with your PC. Buy a double layer DVD burner if you don't have one already. Easiest method is to RIP them to disk with software like ANYDVD from Slysoft. Then burn them to Double layer discs using several progams on the market to create region free versions.
If you don't mind video compression a bit to save cost, use DVD RW discs and you can keep using the same disc over and over.

Send an e-mail to MazdaUSA.com. They might be able to help with your special case.
I have sent them a couple of emails in the past. They had been very friendly and informative. It takes a couple of days for them to get back to you by e-mails.

Hi Silvervtr, I have the same issue: I have relocated from Europe (Holland) to the US and have bought a CX9, and now want to play our collection of European DVD's. Have you already been able to set you DVD system to region free? If so, can you share how? Thanks

Did you also have navigation? Were you able to find a compatible navigation system for the CX9 in Europe? Does anyone if there is such an option?
#9 of 52 Mazda CX-9 rear entertainment system problem
Jul 12, 2010 (2:35 pm)
The flip down LCD screen for the DVD player stopped working, but the audio part of the system works fine. I opened the system up and found a 4 inch eletric ribbon that powers up the LCD screen form the main component had a tear in it. My local Mazda dealer said they only do an exchange with the DVD system for $450, they don't have parts for them. I would say this is mybe a $5 part. On the back of the unit is a lable with a Mazda part number, but also states that it is manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Co. I have got no where with Mitisubishi, you can't even talk to a human and nobody returns your emails. Has anybody had a similar problem.

I had the EXACT same problem happen to me this week.
PART # z38 FPC-MONI NAN241L872
I am going to go to a computer store and see if I can have the guys work on it or give me a duplicate. Some of this electrical metal strips are like power cords and many are alike.
If you find some help with MAZDA please let me know.
