    I was just wondering if I set my hard drive region to region 1 if I will still be able to rip region 2 movies using anydvd.
    Currently I left it at 0, but I dont know the full implications of that, such as if it will cause any problems/complications in the software operations, And currently I can use movies from europe and rip/copy them to be useable on american dvd players

    I have not done any multi region copying. I believe AnyDVD will emulate the region for you, so there shouldn't be a problem. You can keep making R2 discs work in R1. However if you leave your drive at '0 (not set!)' then you may encounter problems on some titles.

    Your hard drive has no bearing on Anydvd.

    That's not always true, even with optical drives. But if you do experience issues, this is what you do:
    i. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
    ii. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
    iii.Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
    iv. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
    v. Click "properties".
    vi. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
    vii. Select the region that matches the region on the disc
    viii. Start Anydvd
    ix. click the fox icon on your toolbar. Go to Video dvd--->settings
    x. Change the default to match the region on the disc
    xi. Click Ok

    AnyDVD disables regions anyway when you insert a disc. The only problem is you have to switch the ripped files from PAL to NTSC so you can play them on American DVD players (which I think you already do).
