there is a way to convert pal m games in ntsc ??? i only found metroid prime 1 and 2 in pal m....
use DVD Decrypter & DVD Shrink combo. Also, remember REGION -- if it's PAL, it's probably not Region 1 [US]. This software will take care of that as well, making your new DVD region-free. Another factor to consider is that the menus may be altered a bit going PAL-NTSC. I don't know if you can do anything about this. This has to do with "color interlacing." And, to make sure it works properly in NTSC version, you'll have to [duh] de-interlace. Like, with DVD Menu Studio: http://www.mediachance.com/dvdmenu/ That being said, I'd use above DVD Decrypter, BUT use it with another freeware product, VOB BLANKER. See details here on how to use: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/207123 and http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/167922 Finally, if you want to try, you can just use another freeware product, IFOEdit, and just simply edit the IFO files to trick your player into thinking it's NTSC when it's really PAL. This works "MOST of the time" -- I'd say around 90-95 percent. It's definitely not perfect, but it takes about 10 seconds to edit those IFO's then burn. If it doesn't work, you're out what, 50 cents? Better, buy some DVD-RW's so you won't have to toss those coasters. Again, you'll find full helps for IFOEdit at afterdawn.com & also over at videohelp.com. Here's the link for afterdawn: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/207123 OK, one last "finally" -- once you've got the files ripped from the DVD to your HD, another product (shareware) you might want to try is DVD Santa -- it's a video converter-burner & can do PAL-NTSC. Decent jobs for the most part. On the whole, I'd opt for what's easiest to accomplish without messsing with having to re-convert the video files you already have. So, in order, I'd suggest as top two choices: IFOEdit DVD Decrypter/DVD Shrink in combination with VOB Blanker Hope this helps!
