AnyDVD or AnyDVD HD should do it for you while you're booted up in Windows. Won't help while you're booted into OS X.

(Just a heads up - Take a read through our DVD ripping policy before you get too far into this on the forum - link.)


VLC player will do it under Windows & OS X.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

That's good to hear because `i think the region coding business is a con akin to saying you can only shop at this supermarket etc, it's taking away free choice.
It's a move by the big studios to make more money not stop piracy,
I work in the movie industry & travel a lot so being able to play DVDs from different regions without being penalised is a boon.
Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.

Mac osx snow leopard 10.6.7
Windows 7 starter installed through bootcamp
AnyDVD HD

When I try to play an out o region DVD I get an error about pins. I'll try to post it later.

I also found this which suggests it doesn't work: No region-free DVD with Boot Camp on new Macbook Pro. - SlySoft Forum
