    Can my US Xbox convert region 0 DVD from PAL to NTSC straight out of the box?

    No, I believe it needs to be modded.

    Yes it does,and damn well to in fact. I have a r0 PAL dvd that plays perfect in the xbox.But I wish I would have bought another region dongle though,I know you only get one chance at that.Hopefully they are coming out with a region defeating device soon .Hope this helps.

    Yep, region-free PAL discs play great on the unmodded XBox. Converts it to NTSC.

    So, let me just clarify myself to be sure.... I can buy a region 2 PAl disc from the UK, rip it to my harddrive using DVDdecryptor and remove the region protection, then burn a new copy to DVD-R and it will play in the Xbox? thats cool.

    Robert, ahem, uhh.... I wouldnt talk about those kind of techniques around here.[​IMG] The HTF doesnt allow talk about doing what you described. Be careful or theyll close the thread.

    Yes, the PAL version of "The Ring"/Ringu region 0 played perfectly (to my suprise) on my unmodded Xbox.

    But I am talking about copying something I own to use on my player. I wouldnt be selling either copy to anyone or giving anyone one of them.

    Robert, it's still forbidden here. Just don't mention ripping any further and all should be fine.
