I've used the DVDfab, dvdshrink, VSO CopytoDVD to burn. On all programs, I have set the program to remove the region codes or to set it to region 1 (which my DVD player is compatible with).
Btw, I forgot to state the problem I am having in the initial post. The DVD reads fine, except the picture (including intro,menu, whole dvd) rolls downwards like a slot machine. From my previous experience, this is an issue with Region.
