Yes, the copied DVD can be played on DVD players.
Since DVD-Cloner for Mac can copy DVDs with 1 to 6 region code and the DVDs copied with DVD-Cloner for Mac are all region free.





What is "region code"?
DVD region code is a technique to enable motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and especially price according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Usually, different regions have different codes to protect their local products. Normally there are six region codes around the world. They are respectively: Region 1: Canada, the United States and other U.S. territories; Region 2: Western Europe, Western Asia, etc. Region 3: Southeast Asia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao; Region 4: Oceania, Caribbean territories, etc; Region 5: Africa, Central and South Asia, Belarus, Russia, etc; Region 6: Mainland China. Then how to play different regions of DVD on your computer? Here are two methods for you. One is to change the region code setting of your computer, but the limitation is that you only have 5 chances. The other is to use the external drive, without changing the region codes, and finish the process quickly. Just three steps are OK. First, prepare the external optical driver. Next, download DVD-Cloner for Mac to back up your different regions of DVD. Finally, you just need to wait for 20-30 minutes to back up a DVD-5 disc, and 35-45 minutes to back up a DVD-9. During the process, you don't need to do anything, just wait.
