    I know that AnyDVD & CloneDVD combo can remove region coding from DVDs but it cannot actually transcode PAL DVD into a NTSC DVD. I've seen lots of "step by step" procedures in various on how to rip a DVD into basic MPEG-2files and then re-create an NTSC DVD using authoring software of various kinds but that's a long and complicated process which loses features such as subtitles, alternate audio tracks etc.

    Does anyone know of any software that can transcode the DVDs completely and intact without having to be an expert in using DVD authoring software? I've suggested it as a future feature for CloneDVD but I've been told it's not likely to happen.

    Might try the following:

    1. Use AnyDvd Ripper or AnyDVD + DVDClone2 to bring the uncompressed videos down to a Folder on the HDD.

    2. Use IFOEdit to change the properties of each IFO file in the Folder to be NTSC -vs- PAL.

    3. Use your faviorate compression routine (if you want to place the video on "Single Layer" DVDs).

    This usually works and does not require that the Video be re-encoded, etc.
