Are you sad that you cannot directly open your favorite DVD disc? And why you can’t open any DVD movie?
The commercial DVD discs are encoded with a region code which is a DRM scheme and is used to restrict the area in which they can be played. So the DVD movies are sold in the given place and the purpose is to allow motion pictures studios to control the release in different countries, to guarantee the exclusive market.
In the world there are 8 DVD regions.
Region 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt)
Region 3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)
Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean
Region 5: Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia
Region 6: China
Region 7: Reserved
Region 8: Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)
On the other hand, there are two situations in the DVD-ROM drives. Your DVD ROM may adopt a firmware level RPC-1 whose playing region is controlled by software. Or the DVD ROM drive adopts a firmware level RPC-2 with hardware protection. The RPC-2 drive has 5 change limits on regions. That is to say, once the counter gets to 0 your drive is permanently locked to the last region.
But now how can we freely play the DVD disc in our country which was bought in another country? And how can we easily decrypt the DVD region code? How can we make the DVD-ROM region free? Use the 3rd party DVD decrypt software like DVD Ghost from clonedvd.net to remove the region lock.
If you want to make the DVD region free, watch and copy any protected DVD movies in any DVD player or any other device or DVD drive, back up encrypted DVD to PC hard drive, convert DVD movies to iPhone, iPod, iPad, PSP ect. you absolutely need the DVD Ghost to help you.
In enjoying you favorite DVD discs, you may also need DVD player software which plays any DVD, VCD, CD, media files, records your favorite part into video or audio files, converts the recorded video files to ASF, AVI, MP4, MPEG, bookmarks your favorite scenes and so on.
