Ok, I want to be able to back up the few region 2 DVD's I have but want to be able to watch them on my American DVD player. I use DVDShrink and Decrypter and I have bought AnyDVD and thought that would do what I wanted,but after backing up the region 2 DVD's I own they would only play on my region free player and not on my American DVD player I brought with my from the USA. I use the DVD brands recommeded here and also sent one to my brother to try on his newer player and he got the same result, it would not play because of the region. I have also used both minus and plus media(RitekG04,and Verbatim). Is it that the AnyDVD is not working? or is it something I am not doing correctely? In case you need to know, I use a Plextor 712A.
