    Hello everyone,

    I just unlocked a DVD player for my mother in law but I want to test it to see if it will play Region 2 dvd's. All she has are store bought region2 DVD's.

    Only problem is that I don't have any Region 2 DVD's to test if the player is working.

    How can I change a Region 1 DVD or ripped ISO image to work only in a region 2 player?

    I don't want a region Free disk.

    Once it's ripped to folder or ISO, of course has no region code (or is coded all regions).
    You can rip a DVD to a folder then open that folder using PgcEdit; click on the 'Globe' icon thingie on the Toolbar and set a region code.
    Save the change (Ctrl+S).
    If you then burn the folder using ImgBurn, it will display an information screen listing the region code.
    The tricky part is that I don't have a region free player to test it on, but my standalone players all give 'wrong region' messages.
    All I got...
