I have a DVD from Thailand that, of course, will not play in my Sony 315 DVD player. It plays in my brand new BenQ DVD burner just fine, but I was trying to figure out how to make a copy that'll play in the Sony.
I have been doing a lot of CD audio work for years, but I am new to DVDs, so I am asking either for help or links to useful information.
I have already installed the following programs:
* the latest Nero Suite
* DVDFab Decrypter
* Power DVD
* DVD Identifier
The disc I have is Region 9 and PAL. Here is what I did.
First, I ripped the DVD to hard drive using Fab Decrypter, and DVD43 was running in the background.
Then, I tried Nero Recoder to fit into a single-layer DVD+R. This also does not play in the Sony, and for the same reason (area restrictions). Is it PAL? PowerDVD reports it as No Region Specified, MPEG-2 (they all are, right?) and 720x576 (which SHOULD be NTSC, right?).
Then, in Nero still, I tried to make a VCD but burned to a DVD for the greater capacity. Nope.
So can anybody help me diagnose what the problem is? Or can you point to a specific article that could help?
