CloneDVD 2 & Region Free

I’m using the trial versions of both AnyDVD & CloneDVD2 and I have to say, great job Olli on both products. The layout is very nice & functionality is top notch. :smiley: My only concern is, when you use CloneDVD2 to rip a movie to your HDD, will it automatically become region free or does it remain the same region (ie. Region 2).

At the moment, I’ve got a R2 (Japan) concert being ripped to my HDD and I would like to play it on my R1 standalone player. Will I be able to view the concert DVD on my standalone DVD player w/out any problems. I will use CloneDVD2 to burn the VIDEO_TS onto a blank DVD.

Edit: In the log of this particular rip, it mentioned “unable to locate layer break”. Is this something I need to be concerned about when copying the movie/concert to a blank DVD?

if you use anydvd it will include all region codes

Yeah I know that, but I’m just wondering if CloneDVD2 is like DVD Decryptor where it removes the region setting when ripping the DVD to your HDD.

AnyDVD does this for you.

Ok thx Olli, I wasn’t sure AnyDVD made the discs you ripped region free.
