I bought a copy of a region 2 DVD not available in Region 1 format in NA. I figured I’d just rip a regionless copy of it and carry on. I have tried using AnyDVD in conjunction with DVDShrink and DVDDecrypter, but while I’m use to seeing RCE protection notices come up and to have that dispensed with the status page is saying that the media is locked to Region 2. Any copies I’ve made so far will not play on my DVD player.
this is what I see:
Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD 188.8.131.52)
Drive (Hardware) Region: 1
Media is a Data DVD.
Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 1
Total size: 2196112 sectors (4289 MBytes)
Video DVD (or CD) label: DVDVolume
Media is not CSS protected.
Video Standard: PAL
Media is locked to region(s): 2!
RCE protection not found.
DVD structure appears to be correct.
Structural copy protection not found.
Autorun not found on Video DVD.
Bad sector protection not found.
Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 2!
I want to strip the code that locks the DVD (and copies) to region 2 and create a regionless copy. Can anybody help with this?
