I have read a bunch of threads that explain how to remove a region code from a DVD, and there are a lot of programs out there that do this. The problem is (and I'm sure I'm not alone on this one) most of the players in the US play only region 1 discs right ? O.k. so removing the code is not really what I want to do. I want to take a DVD that was created in Germany (region 5) and change the code to region 1 so that the backup DVD can be played on my DVD player.
