Question

I am trying to find out how to create multiple DVDs needed for several regions (0 , 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 , 6, 7, 8) in Toast 11 Pro Titanium. For example , I need a Region 1 dvd and then a Region2 dvd, etc. How do I select betweeen Region 0 , 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 , 6, 7, 8?

 

I cannot seem to find out how to do it in the Toast application.

 

Please help.

Not being a Toast user, I can't say with certainty, but if it works like Creator (any version) then Toast creates region-free DVDs, which should be playable anywhere (as long as the NTSC/PAL formatting is correct).

 

Also, clicking the "Solved" button when there are no replies, makes the original post disappear.

Toast sets the region code as 0 which is for all regions. There is no option in Toast to change that. If you want to set a specific region code you can use MyDVDEdit to change it in the .IFO. That requires copying the VIDEO_TS folder to the hard drive and changing the permissions so you can read & write.

 

Since these are not copy protected it is easy for others to change the region if they like, so I'm not sure what you're gaining.

@tsantee - there is a UK DVD I'd like to view. Are you saying by using Toast I'll be able to change the regional code to 0 i.e. all regions and will be able to view it?

In order to play a Region 1 DVD your Mac's optical drive needs to be set for region 1. As I recall the drive can be reset for a different region a few times before it locks in at the last setting, after which it won't play any other regions. There may be information about this in Apple's knowledgebase. Toast doesn't have any control of this. If you have Toast create a video DVD from scratch it is set at Region 0 so it can be played anywhere.

Thanks tsantee. My iMac's optical drive has been long gone, tempted to say it's toast but I don't want to confuse things. I have an external Samsung. I'll have to look into resetting the regional code for it or perhaps it's still a Mac adjustment? Assuming I can get it to play (and I do have Toast) can Toast make the conversion from the original disc or will I still have to rip it? BTW the only time I was in Eugene I recall that everyone was fit, I mean really fit. Is it a requirement for residency?

I think the region-fixing is a firmware thing. The first time you play a video DVD that has a region that is the region the drive sets. When you put in a disc with a different region you should see a message asking if you want to change it. I think the message tells you how many more changes are allowed (I think the maximum is 5). Toast probably can't copy the disc without it being ripped because most discs with region codes also probably have copy protection.

 

I laughed at your description of Eugene. Like everywhere else in the country obesity is far too prevalent. Still, this is where jogging became popular thanks to Bill Bowerman. I ran (too slowly) for Bowerman in the 1960s. There aren't many joggers today (it's really boring) but you see runners and bikers everywhere.

When I was in Eugene (on an extended road trip) my partner decided she wanted to start running. She must have spent 2 hours color coordinating her running outfit with her new shoes etc. before we headed out. Her first 'run' was on the Steve Prefontaine Trail. What a place to have a first run. Don't think she ever realized the significance of it. I'd finally cracked 3 hours and was on my way to tapering off, gaining weight and ultimately dealing with the arthritis. But still I remember Eugene and all of Oregon for that matter fondly. Man, with Bowerman you were there at the beginning.

 

The ripper I use is MacX DVD Ripper Pro. Just read it might be able to rip providing, as you said, the region codes match. I wonder then if once ripped if Toast would then burn a disc with Region 0?

I'm not supposed to discuss ripping in this forum. Something tells me you won't encounter any problem..

 

I ran on the track with Prefontaine during workouts. He simply blocked out the muscle pain the rest of us felt and kept up his amazing pace. He also was a man of the 1960s who spoke his mind and acted with great courage in what he believed was right. We lost much more than a tremendous athlete.
