Region error after ripping

    I ripped a DVD using DVDdecrypter and Smartripper to my hard drive. When I play it back, the message appears that it's the wrong region code. My region code is 1, the movie were bought in region 1. I checked the properties on my DVD drives and they're both set to 1. The movie will fit on 1 DVD. So I don't have to edit anything. I use prassi to burn the CD. Can somebody tell me what the problem is? I will be thankful for any help that I receive!

    Came across your email when i was trying to find help - i had a similar problem recently. In case you haven't found a solution yet: this is what worked for me. I downloaded IfoEdit.exe from http://www.doom9.org/mpg/ifoedit-2dvdrs.htm. On the same page there are instructions to make the disc region free which i followed - the movie then played fine.

    I had to do the region free command on both the video_ts.ifo file and the specific ifo file for the vob files that the movie was actually in. I'm not sure why this is necessary but it worked. Hope this helps.
