Copying DVD to DVD-R removing region code.

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Leonid Makarovsky, Jul 24, 2004.

  1. My friend has an old japanese (1st generation) DVD that came in CD case.
    It's now an out of print item. I'd like to make a DVDR copy of it. When I did
    the copy using SmartRipper, my DVDR came with region code restriction just like
    the original DVD was. It's not a big deal, but I don't want to be changing
    Player's region code every time I put this DVDR in. So the question is what
    do I have to do to remove region code restriction. The funny thing is that
    my computer DVD ROM can read it with SmartRipper, but wouldn't play it due
    to region code mismatch (I haven't hacked my DVD ROM drives).

    Thanks...

    I think DVD decrypter is the best ripping program, and I think the default of
    this program automatically removes all region and macrovision. It is free.

    SmartRipper also has an option to make region free. This option is checked. Yet
    I have it with region encoded.
