Hello

Like many others I've switched from PCs to a Macbook (intel one)

A friend's sent me some DVD-rs he's burned on his pc (I live in Singapore) and I'm having trouble playing them.

When I open the file, they've been saved as Avis. First they wouldn't play at all. Then I downloaded a codec and it played without sound. Then I converted one file using another Divd doctor. It played the sound and not the picture.

Is there another player that will play these ripped dvds?

Also, because I've lived in UK, now Asia and have bought many US DVDs I got in a pickle and ended up setting my DVD to Asia region. If I were to download VLC would that work separately and for all regions?

Apologies for being thick.....
QUOTE Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

I managed to fix it by converting them with the Doctor programme (with the sound compressed) downloading VLC and playing them on there.

Thanks and great site. I was really cheesed off when I realised you could only have several attempts to lock your region (seems to encourage piracy if anything )
QUOTE Thanks
