Burn pal region 2 dvd to ntsc region 1 dvd

I have a dvd in PAL region 2 format which I bought in Europe
I live in a region that uses NTSC region 1 (the same as USA)
I have searched and searched for a way to burn the original DVD to a DVD-R with option to change the format and region to NTSC region 1
I have been reading and reading without any luck.
I’ve tried using CloneDVD and AnyDVD and it still burned the DVD in PAL region 2 format which of course doesn’t play in my DVD player
Is there anyone who knows how to do this or can tell me if it is even possible

Welcome to the forum

Maybe the only way is to re-encode all movie.
Try to use DVD-Rebuilder, a free tool.

This require a MPEG encoder (TMPGEnc or Cinema Craft or other), a very fast CPU, and a lot of time, but give best results in quality.

I don’t know if rebuilder is able to change region, but it’s can done with DVD shrink. Once you obtained a DVD with rebuilder, then you can convert movie into region 1 or also in region free with shrink without any compression or transcoding

Your best bet is to buy an inexpensive DVD player that can play both formats/regions. There have been threads on converting PAL to NTSC but from what I have read the results can be problematic.
