    can it be done ?, i wish to make a backup of a region 1 dvd and i would like it to play on a standard DVD (region 2) player ?.

    I was hoping there may be some software available that will allow me to do it, but i am having difficulty in finding it.

    i also fear that my lap tops dvd recorder is only region 2 as well !, doesnt look good eh!.

    any ideas anyone ?.

    Hooray i have sorted it out, thank the lord.

    i changed my DVD writer to be region 1 (4 more changes allowed) i was then able to back up the DVD('s) by using DVD Shrink and selecting All Regions, and it looks to me now that they play perfectly on my standard (region 2) home DVD player.

    hip hip hooray, see, i can do summat for myself, LOL.

    Changing the region code on a computer is not a good idea.

    This is the best way of doing it, AnyDVD this will remove the region codes and does some other neat tricks to dvd's.

    Well the worth money I paid for it... :mrgreen:

    What I usually do when I come across region mismatch between the DVD and my computer is to make a temporary ISO image of the DVD on the hard drive using DVDDecrypter.
    There is an option to remove the region protection in DVDDecrypter.
    Then I mount the image using VirtualClone Drive, watch the DVD and when I am done, I unmount and delete the ISO file.
