    How about ripping it, and making it R0? Eh?

    What is "Italian format"? Italian uses PAL, just like many other country.

    Maybe you should take a break from ripping and burning for a while, and use few hours to read some FAQs how things are done.. You know, basic things.

    RO is region 0 (region free)

    youll have to rip the dvd with no region code i believe ffmpegx will find a way to convert pal to nstc and reauthor as _ts's

    ill see if ffmegx can do it or not

    brb ..... :0)
