Ok, so I'm fairly new to the DVD burning revolution. I've downloaded a few .avi files using Direct Connect and have converted and burned them to DVD. I first use DIVXtoDVD to decode/encode (?) them to VSO files and then use Nero 6.6 to burn them to DVD. I've had great success with most of them but a few I have run into problems with. When I put the DVD into my Sony home DVD player I get the "Playback prohibited by area limitations" error. I know that this has something to do with the region codes...my question is, how can I tell if an .avi file will be prohibited like this BEFORE I burn it to DVD and waste a disc? Is there a way to tell? I've installed AnyDVD to bypass region code problems but I assume that once a DVD is encoded to DivX you can't bypass the region codes and AnyDVD is only good for physical DVD's? Thanks for the help!
