    I have a friend who bought a DVD video that he didn't realize was Region 2.
    The video is available as Region 2 only. His DVD player plays Region 1
    only, and his PC does not have a DVD drive.

    He does not want to have to purchase any additional hardware to resolve

    I have access to a DVD burner. Is there any software that would let me
    burn a copy of the DVD to a different region, or with no regional coding at
    all? Such as DVDShrink or the old X-Copy?

    What brand+model is his DVD player? There's most likely a remote
    control hack for it on the net somewhere.

    DVDDecrypter can do that, amongst its other feats.

    HOWEVER - if the DVD is > 4.5G, you'll also need to either split it,
    or feed it to DVDShrink to reduce it to fit.

    AND - to do this, you really need an NTFS-formatted HD. XNews
    doesn't include any clues as to what flavor of Windows you're running (that
    I recognize, at least) ... so I'll add that you need that to exceed the
    FAT32 file limit of 4G.

    burn a copy with DVD-Shrink, it can change the region, or set it to region
