    I've been burning DVDs with DVD shrink 3.2 and DVD Decrypter 3.230 with no problem. I have not downloaded the newest version of DVD Decryptor. I tried burning Passion of Christ today. Before shrinking the DVD, DVDshrink told me to specify which region I was in so they can uncode some special restictions. (Not sure what the code was, RMC) I chose the Easter Europe, Russia option, as I always do, then it proceeded to Shrink the DVD. Then I burned it with Decrypter. Next I put it in my Sony DVD player and there is a message on screen saying Disk is not formatted to play in this region. This is the first time I had a problem playing a DVD. Please help! Thanks and really appreciate it.

    Hi rluk23,

    You should have left it in region free. When dealing with regions when ripping, reset your proggy back to region free.

    I have rid myself on the problem by running either DVD43 (free) OR AnyDVD ($39.00 (USD) in the background.

    I'd redo it. BTW, not a bad "bloody" picture - too bad about all the subtitles :(
