HI It’s Me, ok if I make a DVD in the states using ProShow Gold version 6, Will it play on a standard player (that is bought in Ireland) in Ireland and/or Scotland? Incase no one knows what ProShow Gold is, It Is basically a high end SLIDE SHOW maker at least for me. It will use movies and also adds audio.

Thanks for your help

Marty

It depends if this software writes(burns) Region free .
My guess is it should.
If you are using a different burning software then it depends on that software.
None of my DVD drives are locked to a region .
If yours are that might make a difference.

IIRC you have AnyDVD or AnyDVD HD it will tell you the regions a DVD is locked to if they are of if a DVD is region free .

DVDShrink will create a region free folder . Just use full disc for the backup.
Make sure region free is checked. So you can use it if you need to.

As Cholla posted it depends on two factors. First, the software (check if there is an option, even PAL/NTSC). Second is the drive.
Both factors can be handled with AnyDVD on.
thor21344, what is the make of your standalone player, btw?

Regions should only apply to commercially made movies. A home-made slideshow will not have a region coding.

And most PAL DVD players can handle NTSC playback. Its going the other way that causes issues. Which means your slideshow/DVD should work.
