DVD Region

From time to time this happens:
user complains that the DVD drive doesn't play any disk and/or the ripping also doesn't work. I've met this few times in the past - and in 95% of case it was the unset region ID plus region-protected DVDs, which are typical for US/Canada/Europe(?)

So, here is a short article now

tkmedia:
Is it possible this is why my new blu-ray player can not rip.

After a bunch of hoops the best I got was 1 rip saw various progress to around 60 % then it said successful but I can not play the results.

Now every time I attempt a rip it goes immediately to success but actually does nothing. :'(



Marper:
I'm an EGG - when I start a term session I can't seem to get to root, so when I run this command I get the error command not found.

royw:
Try using sudo.

  linuxmce@dcerouter:/etc$ sudo /usr/pluto/bin/dvd_region -s -r 1 -d /dev/dvd1

the password is your log in account's password.  linuxmce in the above example.

Have fun,
Roy
