I have dvdshrink and dvd dycrypter but I don't want to follow through just yet with backing up a movie. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm asking just in case. I have a region 2 movie that I want to backup, mainly, I want to be able to change its region in the backup proces, so that I can play it on a region 1 DVD player. I've been told that Buying DVD-X copy (i think that's what it is called) will help, but I want to know if there is any way of doing it without having to buy it. I plan on buying a region free dvd-player, but before I do, I want to know if it is possible to change the region when backing up a dvd, thanks.
