    My home DVD player cannot play European (region 2) DVD movies, because it is an Australian one (region 4). I am looking for a software to copy DVD2DVD and change the region setting. There are lots out there, but I am looking for a free one (don't want to spend US$50 for one copy!)

    Any suggestions welcome. Cheers, EJ :blink:

    not all movies are released in all regions......many of my asian dvd's are region 2 or even 3 and in pal as well sometimes

    i just decided to get a region free dvd player w/built in pal/ntsc converter

    or you could always check to see if your dvd player is hackable
    such as was the case with my jvc

    Just noticed that Daemon supports multi region. When installed look under 'set device parameters'. I can't say whether it works or not. Don't have a dvd player. I use it as a virtual cd only.

    Gotta disagree with that........for the home user anyway. There is so much freeware around you just have to dig a little & wham there it is. For the home user this stuff really does an adequate job sometimes better than programs that cost $$$$.

    just change the region through the registry -

    1.Start > RUN > regedit

    2.Click the + (plus) sign to the left of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. > software > microsoft > windows > then Highlight the CurrentVersion folder.

    Choose Edit, New, Binary Value. An entry (New Value #1) will appear on the right side of the Registry Editor screen
    Step 7: New Value #1

    Type the following: DefaultDVDRegion.
    Once created, set the Binary Value to 0 or 1 - (depending on what is teh current value)
    Close the Registry.
    Re-Run the DVD software (reinstall) .
    It should prompt for region selection again. Set the region to 1 (or applicable country).

    That's what I did, It worked for me fine. I know someone who had the same issue running home edition and was not able to watch his dvds from Hungry. He ended up buying a new dvd drive :). Guess he should have talked to me first

    sucker.

    Elroy is asking about a home DVD, NOT a DVD-ROM. And I have found tha answer despite all the babble here. I found the program that copies DVDs for free. Check out:

    It works like a charm!!!!! And gets rid of the region control thingy, too!

    Enjoy, EJ :)
