I do have a Toshiba e740 Pocket PC, but the thread doesn't explain how to do it with the pocket pc, it does explain how if you have a palm os. I'll do some more research on that.
also, i did try both DVD +R and -R discs, both show the "Playback prohibited by area limitations" on the sony player. all my pinnacle discs play fine on my pioneer and samsung players, just not the sony and i was told that is because that sony model only plays a dvd that is designated as region 1.
the AnyDVD software looks like you can set the copy you are making to region 1 but it only seems to make my pc's dvd drive set to region 1 and not the content of the burned dvd.

is that correct or am i reading it wrong?
