    Well i got a new DVD today and it's region 1 USA but being in the UK my DVD played on my laptop is Region 2.

    Since getting anyDVD pretty much any region DVD has worked but today when i got this new region 1 dvd it hasn't worked and i've had to manually change the region of my DVD player.

    I was wondering what was up with it? Or are there other programs that make your player Region Free?

    Anydvd makes the discs appear region free to your system. However, Anydvd does not convert NTSC to PAL nor vice versa.

    are some region 1 USA dvd's in pal format?

    No. Region 1 is NTSC.

    Go there and search for the model of your DVD player. Also try google. If no hacks are found, then I would suggest buying a DVD player which will play all regions. If you can't find one in the UK (it shouldn't be a problem) then import one from Australia. Most of our DVD players play all formats/regions.
