AnyDVD can disable the region-specific code on a DVD, so that it becomes “region free”. However, a few original DVD’s I have say:
“Region locked to: 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 8”
…which apparently means, that DVD will play in any region (or “multi region”, which I don’t know whether it is equivalent to “region free”).
So my question is: if I have a DVD that says “Locked in Region 1”, should I make it “region free”, or is there any way that AnyDVD can set it to “1,2,3,4,5,6, and 8”? (considering I want to play in on different systems/different regions).
A somewhat related question is: when I change the settings in AnyDVD to “Region 8 Special International Venues”, the information from the DVD reads “Simulate RPC2 drive: Region 8”. What does that mean exactly, and is that good or bad (i.e., am I limiting the playback compatibility of that DVD, or am I expanding it)?
Thanks in advance,
