    I was given a set of Farscape DVD's for Christmas only problem it is Region 4. I have downloaded trial Anydvd and trial Clonedvd2 hoping I could make a copy that I could watch. Every time I make a copy of DVDs copy will not play in DVD players, get error message saying Disc Error Playback feature my not be available on this Disc. Original disc give me Region Code Error. Settings in Anydvd show box check for removal of Region Code. Any help would be greatly appreciated:bang:

    1) Are you in Region 1?

    Anydvd doesn't convert PAL to NTSC. It does make your backups region free, but it doesn't convert PAL to NTSC nor vice versa.

    If your standalone player only plays NTSC, then you're out of luck, unless you use different software to convert PAL to NTSC first.

    2. Use Anydvd click

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    3. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    4. Do this for the original disc and for your backup:

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
