Nicky Page has a really superb site offering really useful help min the art of digital copying and movie making. In his words "Firstly, Iím not really an expert in either the Mpeg format or in DivX. Neither am I some kind of hacker or pirate in any sense of the word. I do not claim to have invented any of the major conversion methods. In fact, it would be hard for anyone to say they had invented them since all methods depend almost exclusively on the software and utilities that enthusiasts have produced for the purpose of both converting DVD's into another formats. Iím only explaining the things I have done so that you can try them. Great advice from a single site! Check out this guide to Virtual Dub here>>

 

 
DVD Region free is a really superb program that really does get round the DVD region problem. Multi-region is a problem for PCs and it's even more complicated than the issue with stand-alone players.  The DVD drive can be region-locked, which can sometimes be solved with an unofficial firmware upgrade. The software DVD player can also be region-locked, and there are various hacks on the Internet for resolving these. On some systems, which include a hardware decoder card, there can be a third source for preventing region-free playback.
There is one neat solution that can help you get round all these. Take a look at DVD Region-Free, a software program that is exactly what you are looking for.
