Region Error

I dl'ed Pink Floyd Live 8, burned with Nero 5.

Get a region error when I try to play in a Sony DVP-nc60p
(Although it plays fine in an Apex player).

Any suggestions on burning this in a Region-free format,
or know of a hack to use on the player?

Thanks in Advance

Re: Region Error

its proabably in because the DVD's in PAL format, and yer player is a NTSC device...apex's play both formats...you can try this, to trick yer DVD player into thinkin its NTSC [read rherron's post about half way down]

Re: Region Error

This is really strange to read this... I just got an email from someone saying they are getting a "playback prohibited by area limitations" error when they tried to play their *downloaded* DVD on their DVD player (homemade DVDs should not get this error). I googled the error and saw that it came up a whole lot in regards to Sony DVD players. So, I asked him if he had a Sony, and sure enough, he did.

I couldn't find a solution to it though. I'd suggest going to videohelp.com and see if they have a solution to this weird problem.

Re: Region Error

I've read repeatedly that a cheapo $40 DVD player will play pretty much anything, it's just the expensive high-quality ones that get all fussy... how strange is that?

Re: Region Error

AAR.oner,

Your advice did the trick! Thank you.
Use ifoedit to change the ifo file to trick the player into
thinking it is NTSC.

Thanks again!

Re: Region Error

glad it worked

note--you should save the show in its *original* format [PAL in this case] for archiving and trading...this "tricked" copy should only be used for personal viewing
