This may be a silly qestion, but I will give it a try anyway. I installed a copy of DVD X Copy platinum last night and tried to copy a region 5, PAL format DVD to a DVD-R. Everything was OK except I couldn't play it on my SONY DVD player. I think it's due to the PAL format. I wonder it's possible to convert the DVD format from PAL to NTSC by using DVD X Copy? Also, it took 1 1/2 hours to read the original DVD into the HD, Is this normal? Will the other software (DVD Decrypter, DVD shrink) be faster? Thank you for your help in advance.
