It will in most cases.

Try to change the dvdcss method of the dvdplay/dvdold plugin in the 
preferences panel to "title" (or alternatively run "DVDCSS_METHOD=title 
./vlc dvdold:///dev/rdisk1@1,1" from the command line).

If this still doesn't work than you're out of luck. That means you've got 
one of the few drives that have a tighter restriction on region checking.
