DVD region changing


I'm a little lost here and would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

A friend of mine recently bought some DVDs in a European country, not realizing that his DVD player wouldn't play them. What I can't figure out is whether there is some simple, clean-cut method for copying them to DVD-Rs with a different region or whether I have to go through all the trouble of trancoding, etc. and then burning.

Ubuntu DVD ripper

I used DVD::RIP with Ubuntu to rip a region 1 disc from a region 2 drive.
It works very nicely.

Another option is to unlock your DVD player ... i.e. set it to region 0.

There's also dvdunauthor and spuunmux if you're into that xml custom DVD thing. You might also be able to dd an image and hexedit the byte(s) that set region code. Not that I'd know where those would be, or what they would look like. And if my recent attempts at DVD authoring are any indication, it could be a bit more complex than that.
