Awesome, but will I be able to play any of these Blurays or DVDs in the US?
You should be able to play it on your computer. That's how I play the Split Enz DVD and the Out of the Bag DVD. Yeah, I know that sucks. What I also do sometimes is connect my computer to my TV so that I am able to watch these DVDs on my TV.
Hmm. I bought the Split Enz DVD off of E-bay and couldn't get it to play on my laptop (fairly new one) or my PS3. I'm tech-impaired, may have to have another go at it.
It could have something to do with the software that you are using to play the DVD. I just bought a new computer last December and I initially had problems until I upgraded the software. Now it plays fine. I am using Cyberlink PowerDVD. I hope that helps.
