    I have DVDFab9 Blu-Ray version. It allows me to make a copy of any Blu-Ray to a BD-R. (for my own use) I am in the USA, so I am Region A.

    Today, I purchased a Region B Blu-Ray (It is not available as a Region A Blu-Ray)
    How do I take this Region B disk and burn it to a BD-R converting the result to a Region A?

    Thank you one and all.

  2. Rip it, i.e. decrypt and copy to hard drive. That will remove decryption and region lock. Then you can re-encode and burn to BDR, no problem.
    Pull! Bang! Darn!

    Thank you for your answer. But Decrypring the blu-ray, Re-coding it, this is too advanced for me.
    Is there a software, like my DVDFab Blu-Ray that can easily do this? or remove the region code?

    I am sorry but I don't have a lot of technical savvy.

    I am just looking for a relatively simple way, please.


    Please help.

    You don't have to re-encode if you are willing to use BR-R DL, 50GB. Very simple: put disc on your computer blu-ray drive & decrypt with DVDFab (I prefer AnyDVD HD) to hard drive. Remove original disc, insert BD-R DL. Open up ImgBurn, select write files/folders to disc, point to the folders that were produced by DVDFab, follow instructions, viola! Note: if there is cinavia, sound may mute at some point on playback of disc you created. Depending on the combination of blank disc and writer you use, one may or may not recognize the other. Writing to blu-ray discs is always a critical operation. While doing so, no other program should be open, no wifi, no internet, no monitoring apps or any of that shit. The blu-ray writer should much preferably be internal SATA, and not USB.
    For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".

    Thank you. I did exactly as you said.

    Unfortunately, it did not alter the REGION coding, nor did it remove the REGION coding. The copy I made with DVDFab decrypt and ImgBurn is still a REGION B Blu-Ray. It will not play on my SONY BVD-E570 Blu-Ray player. Perhaps there is a step I missed?





    I just assumed that there would be a software out there to change or remove the REGION CODE. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


    Thanks.

    If it's region B it may have a framerate of 25FPS which your Sony blue ray player will see as PAL and won't play even if it's region free. Most Region B disks are 23.96FPS like U.S. region A but some use 25FPS. Can you check the frame rate of the original disk? BDinfo can read the frame rate. Also DVDfab was sued and was forced to remove most features are you sure it's removing the region code?

    Didn't you read what i posted?Even when you remove region code it will not play on a sony blu-ray player since it's an authored 25fps disc,the only thing you can do is package it as a mkv and play it that way.

    Your post did not mention 25FPS. Yes if you convert it to MKV it will play in a SONY BR player because in file format it does not read the FPS.

    My original post said it wouldn't play,i said in my last post post it was due to the 25fps,was adding info since most new posters don't understand all the issues till more people post.

    So do I now have confirmation that PAL/NTSC issues still exist in Blu Ray world?

    If the original region B disc is genuinely 25fps, I don't think that is really a blu-ray issue but more of playability limitations between most blu-ray players and TVs, both bought in and intended for use in North America, which will resolutely refuse anything 25fps, region coded or not.
