I bought a few DVDs from England because they weren’t available in the US, but it won’t play on my DVD player. It will play on my Mac SuperDrive, but I am allowed to switch the region code only 4 times. If I switch it region 2 rip the DVDs to my Mac, will I be able to watch them without encountering problems? I don’t anticipate going on a buying spree of English DVDs so I could switch the SuperDrive back to region 1 with 2 more switches/changes remaining, or I could leave the SuperDrive on region 2. Would that cause problems if bought software in the future and needed to use the SuperDrive that was still in the region 2 setting?
BTW, do Bu-Ray discs also have this annoying region setting on their discs as well?
