    My sister in the UK sent me some DVDs for Christmas. They won't play in my DVD player because they have a different region code. I made backup copies and had the 'Remove region code' option checked in AnyDVD. However, they still won't play. I get the same 'Incorrect region code' error as before. Is there a way for AnyDVD to actually remove or bypass the region code?

    What region code is your drive set to?

    My DVD player is set to the region code for North America (0?). I believe I can play the DVDs on my PC, but I want to watch them on my wide-screen TV.

    The region code for North America is 1. Once you copy the DVD with AnyDVD on, the new DVD will be region free.

    This is what I was fixing to say.

    That's what I thought, but it didn't work that way. Attached are my AnyDVD settings, but I still can't play the back-up copies on my DVD player.

    Is your television PAL-compatible? If these DVDs you were sent were from the UK, then the region-coding isn't the only barrier stopping you from watching them. AnyDVD will remove the region-coding, but copying with CloneDVD (or any other ripper, for that matter) won't convert PAL to NTSC. The reason you can watch it on your computer is that computer monitors aren't generally affected by this, but TVs are.

    The region code for North America is 1. I see his link any.jpg and see the region code on AnyDVD. Are there a place on my sonic Dvd player that i need to fix like this?

    Sonic software very well might be the problem as it isn't a good choice to use to back up DVD's that you bought.

    You can use nero Vision to convert it from PAL to NTSC, it takes Nero Vision a while to convert it then burn it.

    AnyDVD settings attached, but I don't see that they affect the problem.

    It looks like you have PAL instead of NTSC disc, is this correct? If so follow post #11.

    That could be the problem. According to Panasonic my TV is not PAL compatible, even though it's digital and HD. However, the error message was from the DVD player, not the TV. I have tried PAL tapes in the past and was able to get the sound OK but no picture.

    OK, I'll try Nero. Thanks for the info.

    In order to plaback a PAL movie in the U.S. where the standard is NTSC then you would need a dvd player and a TV that can playback both formats, NTSC for U.S. standard and PAL.

    Which Feature of Nero Vision converts from PAL to NTSC? I did a thorough search of http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html and could find no reference to such conversion.
