I ment that do they have a computer with a dvd drive?

Because computer dvd driver can play both kind of formats. Atleast I could watch some dvds that I got from america with my pc but not with my dvd player.

Only store bought dvd movies are coded for the various regions. The movies you will burn on your dvd burner at home go on region free.

This is the dvd burner I purchased recently, a AOpen DUW1616/ARR for Aus$75.00 or a little under US$60.00

wouldn't software programs such as anydvd or dvd region free be able to remove or reset the region you want for Romania? I've heard of some people with firmware flashes that can remove regional settings from dvd burners ... or make them multi-region burners.

Wombat ... I guess I was thinking more along the lines of when he creates his movies (which indeed are region free like you said), that if mr. monger is concerned about his newly created dvd's won't play on his relative's player in Romania (which shouldnt be an issue being region free, but who knows), that he might be able to use software to set the region for Romania. Didnt know it mattered about the dvd burner being a multi-regional burner or not. Oh well ... learn something new everyday.

There is NO excuse for the insults flying about in this thread. End this nonsense now.

Now Mr. Monger is it a NTSC/PAL issue? Or is it a region issue?

Ok I'm still not for sure what it is you want but here's my take on what I "think" you're wanting.
If you are copying store bought movies which is illegal by the way, the reagion code will get copied along with it. What you have here will not play over there.
BUT
If you're making homemade dvd's of tapes and pictures then there is not a region code imposed on the dvd and it will play anywhere.

Now the region code is imposed to keep movies made in a forien country from being sold over here. In xp you have a control that will reset the region code. BUT before you go messing with that better sit there and read this two or three times. THE REGION CODE CAN ONLY BE RESET 4 TIMES MAX THEN IT LOCKS UP. It flashes the firmware every time you change the code. If you reinstall windows or move the burner to another machine it still will NOT work. Don't even think about using that to make those movies for them. It will prove to be an exspencive method.

it's Unicode...


I don't have the time to translate it now... but if you do, http://the-stewardship.org/research/unicode.htm that will help...



At the moment I'm just going to assume it's either
A) rude, which is why it's encoded, or...
B) some kind of buffer overflow script that could have been used to exploit a webserver, the translation will tell us a lot more about it.
