    burned this movie from a single layer .bin file, wont play on my dvd player due to the "cannot play disc due to area restrictions" area message (it is a brand new dvd player)

    the dvd plays fine on the PC using powerDVD, though noticed that the audio will not play using Windows Media Player.

    I tried using Nero Recode and reburning the DVD, but with the same results with my DVD player.

    is there a program i can use to extract the raw video without quality loss, then reburn with a program like nero vision?

    thanks for your help!

    Could be the format of the film. Pal is Europe and NTSC is USA.

    Make sure it is compatible with your player/TV.

    That's not relevant, we're not talking about your Xbox drive. They are Region Free, I think, so that would explain it...
