Find Region Code on DVD disk?

vbimport

#1

Is there some simple software (freeware) that will tell me what region a commercial and/or DVD R movie is set at?


#2

Should be right on the disk. Mine have it on them.


#3

I should be more specific, - I am testing some PAL- NTSC DVD conversions and because they are not playing in my DVD player - I want to check what region they have been coded with.
Is there software that simply identifies the region of a DVD(+/-R) ?

The main software players – WinDVD, Power DVD – will tell you this under “Configuration”. Or use Nero Infotool, DVDInforPro and a zillion others.

Did a google search on “drvutil”, and got nothing useful at all! In fact, it is questionable what that is. Also, if it exists, it is for Windows.

By the way, I did do an exhaustive search. I also said I needed such a program FOR A MAC.

^You’ll probably need one of the free decryption programs for Macs. Start with the Mac version of DVDFab. http://www.dvdfab.com/download.htm

There is a section of DVDFab, called DVDFab HD Decrypter that will still work even after the trial ends.

Thanks, Kerry56. In another forum, someone mentioned that Apple’s DVD Player can tell one what a DVD’s Region Code is. I trued it, and it does work. But, I’m going to try your suggestion.

Thanks again!

Apparantly just a typo of chef; he meant the terminal command [I]drutil[/I].
