Hi, I have a european DVD Which is not the same region as USA. If I burn it in Roxio Popcorn, or Toast, will it be able to play on a tv? If not, do you know of any programs I can use to convert the region? Thanks

changing region code is not a biggest problem. if the disc is from europe, then its in PAL format. Unless you have DVD player which can play both PAL (europe) and NTSC (US) television standards, you wont be able to play the disc. same goes for television set.

if you want to play it on the computer you can change the region code using MacTheRipper. its the free app. for extracting DVD data on your HDD.
