Copy dvd region 4

I bought my Mum a dvd region 4 which won’t play on her dvd player. Is there any way I could burn this with 1clickdvd copy pro, or copytodvd SE
to enable it to be viewed on her LG player that I believe will only play region 1?
Many thanks
Angie

This is the main purpose for DVD copy programs like 1click and others. They make your copies region free so you can watch them on your DVD player. So yes 1 click can do what you want it to do

Fantastic! Didn’t know that…will try it out now and she will be so pleased!
Really appreciate your help GJ.
Kind regards,

1Click does not remove the Regional Coding

  • nor does DVD43

However ,
Most of the regional protections are located in the
Original Disc’s Video Manager VTS Menu
If you produce a “Movie Only” version Back-up
The Regional encoding is omitted from the Back-up

If you wish to produce a “Full” Back-up
( including the Menus and the Extras )
You’ll need to use other means to Remove the Regional encoding

If you are using DVD43
There is way to remove the Regional Encoding
Which involves one extra quick easy step

This free utility FreeDVD will remove the Regional Encoding

> Use 1Click to produce a Back-up to a HDD(Working) folder
> Direct FreeDVD to the HDD folder
With one easy Click - All Regional protections will be removed
This only takes a second
After performing the removal

  • use 1Click to Burn the result

You may simply run FreeDVD to your 1Click ‘working’ folder

  • before inserting your Blank disc to burn

The Resulting back-up will be Region free



Another maybe easier  way would be using AnyDVD as your Decrypter
AnyDVD will remove the Regional encoding on the fly 
You could give AnyDVD a try 
AnyDVD does have a 21 day free trial

Thanks heaps. Just saw this after posting another cry for help with it.
Will try.
Sorry for doubling up.
Angie

sorry, how do I direct the freedvd to folder please?

Oh dear having lots of problems with this disc.
Everything I do, in the end, I get a message that the disc is corrupted and cannot read the files…try another dvd.
I can see this perfectly on my all region player and will now try using anydvd.
I also tried dvd shrink with no luck.
I just want to get this done for my mum.

anydvd won’t allow me to use as it remembers I tried it once before. I prefered 1clcik which worked better on my Vista so unless I buy it, I can’t use it to remove the region 4 setting.
??

Okay. Here is the latest…All the time and trouble I have been going to, and bothering you all? Well, just found out that there is something wrong with the dvd. I bought another pack (three movie edition) to give my Mum after I found out that we here in Aus play region 4 dvds and that region 4 is the norm. So, when I tried the new pack, bought here and not on ebay, which was new anyway, it plays and burns and does all the right things! So after all of that, no matter what I had tried nothing would have worked!
So annoying and don’t understand why the disk is corrupted but it plays on my new LG burner/player.
But it’s all good now and I guess the morale of all this is to make sure about the disk you have, that is a good disk, and is okay in every way…
Thanks guys.

… for future reference …

Playing - Doesn’t matter
… as Compared to Ripping

Playing and ‘Ripping’ are two - Very different things
Your DVD Player may be able to just ‘skip’ through the errors
The “Ripping” process is much more precise - “exactly” precise ;
and Your DVD-ROM/Burner cannot just ‘skip’ over them …

Playing = Dumping a load of rocks off a truck
Ripping = Landing a plane at night.

[B]There doesn’t necessarily need to be any visible damage [/B]
The Disc may appear to be visually perfect .

  • and as that applies -
    It simply appears
  • that one of your players is just more ‘forgiving’ than the others

I have one Player that is way overly 'picky’
Discs that won’t play in it - Play fine in my others
This ‘picky’ player is definitely heading for the bin

anyway …
this might save you some future headaches

If you suspect that you might have a 'Bad Disc"
Inspect the Disc and try cleaning it

  • even if it doesn’t look like it needs it.

If this doesn’t prove successful …
Use the [B]VSOInspector[/B] to scan the Disc ( it’s Free )
http://www.vso-software.fr/products/inspector/inspector.php

[I][B]Scan with BOTH “Surface Scan” and “File Test”[/B][/I]

If the Inspector reports "READ Errors"
Then you’ll know that you’ve come across a “BAD” Source Disc .
I would then suggest that you

  • As you did - acquire a different copy
    … and compare your results .

[B]1 Click Can’t Read my DVD Movie
// READ Errors // Skipping Bad Sectors in Log [/B]

If VSOInspector is reading a problem

  • Then there is usually a problem with the Disc
  • or a problem with the Drive
  • and that is why it is failing to be ‘read’
    ( - or in this case : failing to back-up properly )

Did you Figure out how to use DVDFree ?
