I was able to install DVDShrink 3. The problem I'm having is that my Backup options aren't the same as what you show. When I select "Backup! Copy Protection Error - The read failed because the sector is encrypted. Is that a show stopper?
By the way, thanks for the screen shots I'm not opposed to buying a new region free DVD player but I wanted to give this solution a try first.
There are application that override that limitation, I can post them but youcan search then on the web. Hello Darin, yes they do differ some what. I also use it to backup my home movies DVD straight from my camera.
I don't think your problem is any copyrights but rather maybe a missing step or your missing the tool that actually authors these to DVD. But you can just backup to Hard Disc then use Image burn as suggested to actually burn it. Good brands like Panasonic digital set top boxes or DVR are region free. On exactly how to do so, i have found a pictorial guide on avsforums. But it works, the player was originaly locked to B but have no problems playing A locked discs on it now.
Region code hack posted by videdit, June 06 I bought a one-for-all URC As of February you can still buy this on ebay. The original instruction tells you to use code to setup the remote. I didn't see this and used instead. Log in Register. Search titles only. Main menu. Disclaimer: DirecTutor. Maria are you in New Zealand? You should be able to return your player if it was advertised as region-free and turns out not to be.
Otherwise this remote will work on your Region 4 players from the list above. I have used a remote hack before did try it but old batteries still in it so i think its naffed, thanks Stephen.
The latest version of these unlocking remotes should work on your player to make it multi-region. Good Luck. Panasonic were paying them to do it so that the customer would incur no cost. Not sure if they are still doing it. Check with your local Panasonic service company. They need a receipt before they will do it. Any way I can remedy this? Like I said, I have had no issues with this player whatsoever since I bought it. Perhaps the lens just needs cleaning? Also try disconnecting the player from your home network if it is connected.
Any help you could give would be much appreciated thanks Jo. Hi Jo, New Zealand is the only country in the world where if you take your Panasonic player to your local official Panasonic service centre they will unlock the region coding for you free of charge. Let us know if you do this! Thanks for the help DB! Big Boi. May 22, Canada, Ontario. Mar 4, Michigan. Now if we can get the pesky Playstation 3 consoles to be region free, this would be super sweet.
