I have an old DVD Spaceballs by Mell Brooks which is Zone 1 and my laptop is Zone 2. I can watch the DVD on my DVD player which is zone 9 but not on my laptop.
I tried to copy it with DVDFab Gold but can't watch the result. I tried to use DVDExpress and then DVDFab Gold and the result was the same.
I can copy my Zone 2 DVDs.
Laptop Fujitsu-Siemens S7010, DVD writer: MATSHITA UJ-820D on zone 2
