    CloneDVD2 does not convert one tv format to another tv format.
    try using a region free dvd player.
    (my UK PAL PlayStation 2 does play NTSC discs).

    @ luttge,

    Welcome to the Forum.

    The simplest way to Convert PAL to NTSC is not attempt the Conversion at all but to use a PlayBack Viewing device that supports both PAL and NTSC video format.

    The below Web Link provides information on Converting PAL to NTSC ->

    There are numerous other PAL to NTSC conversion guides available. Just use Google Search ( for the topic PAL to NTSC.


    PS - mike20021969,

    DVD Region Coding and PAL/NTSC Video Format are two entirely different things. A DVD “Region Free” PlayBack Viewing device does noting to convert PAL to NTSC or NTSC to PAL video formats.

    Since CloneDVD cannot do a PAL to NTSC or NTSC to PAL conversion I am moving this thread to the Thirty Party Software forum.

    And, yes, Nero Vision is one of the numerous options for doing such a conversion.
