Hi. I want to buy a DVD that's only available in NTSC. I'm trying to find out if I can play it on my PC, using my LiteOn LDW 401S internal DVD player. Can't find the relevant info. Be very grateful for any help. My TV- connected DVD player is not multiregion.

NTSC is nothing to do with multi region it is the type of picture format the Americans use on their TV system we use PAL. I have not heard of NTSC DVD files (AVI MPEG4 Dvix)

NTSC is the film standard used,and should play OK on your PC without having to change any settings.

It is only REGION codes that might prevent it from playing.

The difference between PAL and NTSC is Frame sizes and frames per second.

I thought that a multi region player could do just that....play DVDs, videos from different regions ( eg USA is region 1, Uk is region 2).I looked on the Amazon site for this DVD and it states it's a Region 1 DVD.I can't remember setting up my IDE DVD player for region 2 but I assume I was prompted at install, to select a region. I'm a novice on this one, tho

If I buy this DVD from USA, which Amazon states is NTSC format only, can I play it on my DVD player in my PC? Thanks for further response...... appreciated

Sorry.
thanks for that....looks exactly what I require. However......may I just confirm that my internal DVD player/R/RW will generically only play PAL DVDs and that I need this software to be able to play it? Just want to make sure before I buy.
Thanks...apppreciate the info

your internal DVD player will only play region 2(europe) discs regardless of the NTSC/PAL format
