    Hello all,

    Can anyone recommend some software that will allow me to play Region 1 DVD's on my PC without changing the dvd drive?

    Also is there any software that will allow me to copy a region 1 DVD and then burn it on to a disc in region 2.

    I've used DVD decrypter before so I know how to copy a dvd but i don't know if it's possible to switch the region.

    Use DVD43 as it is freeware and does the same job as DVD Region Free.

    Try DVD Shrink to copy the DVD. Remember though that making a DVD region 2 from region 1 it will still be in NTSC format. Shrink can make the DVD region free.

    AnyDVD is good, you have to pay for it, enables you only to have 1 DVD drive in your PC. I have tried multiregion firmware hacks, but they affected burning.

    AnyDVD can also rip difficult dvd's complete (uncompressed) to your harddrive (purely for backup purposes......of course). It has frequently updated support, as new ways of protecting films are released.

    I prefer to play DVD files from my harddrive, quieter and no layer change delay.
