    I have a french dvd I ve bought for me.

    Unfortunatly This DVD is PAL coded.

    I have extracted with Popcorn the DVD to ,make an .toast image file of it.

    I have converted it with Visual Hub, NTSC format
    the software creat a .vob temp file after the conversion, visualhub burn it to a DVD disc

    But I have only one choice of language and no subtitle.

    I just want a NTSC DVD disk like my other. With all menu like in the PAL disk

    Copyright: I ve contacted the autor, but in both FR and EN language he just have it in PAL format. I tell him than I will transfert it to NTSC, I have this agreement for my personnal use.


    Anyone could help me ?

    Unfortunately trying to convert the subtitles and menu are much more onerous. Video conversion is no big sweat, but to do the rest you'd need to use advanced ripping software, Photoshop, and DVD Studio Pro (or other authoring software) to create the new DVD.

    It'd probably be easier to get an all-region player that does cheap standards conversion. I know Philips makes one you can get at Best Buy for like $40.

    No, that's what I'm saying, it does standards conversion in the player—you put in a PAL DVD and it plays out NTSC. The player converts the outgoing video feed on the fly.

    If you have Toast, you should be able to rip the dvd using handbrake, set it to region 0 or 1, then burn the Video folder using Toast. Just check "NTSC" in the preferences and you're done!

    Handbrake is going to just rip the individual titles, not the menu system, and the OP would end up in the same place that he started.
