    I heard that they can but can any member here confirm this. Also, how good are these code free DVD players that have PAL to NTSC converters?
    Thanks

    My PAL DVDs play on my computer. So yours should play as well. Also if you want a region free player that does PAL to NTSC conversion go with the Malata. I've seen it and it does damn good conversion.

    Good Luck,

    The Malata does it about as good as it's going to get

    PCs and output from them has no PAL/NTSC issues

    You know, PC's don't "know" about a PAL/NTSC issue.
    It only becomes important if your graphic card has a TV-out - and then it depends upon what's supported by the GC.
