    hi guys

    i know this may sound dumb!! :)

    i need help in trying to burn a region 1 disc

    first off i needed to change my dvd settings from r2 to r1 to encode the disc and back it up to my HD.

    but when i did burn it to disc and tried to play it in my dvd player it would not play as it was not pal format.

    so what i need to know is can i copy a r1 disc and brun it as a r2 disc??

    cheers for the help guys :)

    Hi Nu330ci

    It would be better to rip and set it region free then can be played on any machine

    Is the disc in Pal or NTSC. Being Region 1 I suspect it is NTSC and will need to be converted to Pal.

    As I have limited knowledge and experience someone else in the forum will need to advise.

    I hope this helps

    If you encode it as region free you can play that bad boy anywhere, I make all mine region free.
