    Is it possible to copy a dvd using my computers dvd recorder and at the same time make the copy region free so that I can send it to India?
    I have some family recordings which I would like to send to relatives in India but their dvd region code is different.

    Home made DVD recordings - I ssume from a video camera - don't have region protection. So you should be fine.

    imichael, I have actually transferred these home recordings form a dvd camcorder onto dvd-rw media using the DVD writer in my PC. The writer has a region code of 2 and hence my worry of sending these discs to india where the code is 5.

    Any recordable DVD (whether it's DVD-R/-RW or DVD+R/+RW) willl be region free. Burnable media do not support region protection at all.

    The only thing you need to worry about is when you send PAL recordings to NTSC countries if their player/TV doesn't support PAL output.
