Windows 7: Does DVD43 alter DVD aspect ratio?

Does DVD43 alter DVD aspect ratio?

I have several DVDs, which I play either from my HDD or from the DVD drive . A couple of them say thay have been altered to fit my display. As they were 4:3 movies, everybody is now wide and flat on my 16:9 screen.

I am using DVD43 mainly to get around region differences.

I actually get notification of this on my screen, whether I play the DVD or from HDD. If I play in WMC (Win 7) I get the wide video. If I play in WMPlayer, I still get the notice, but the video _plays_ correctly at 4:3.

DVD 43 is the only common factor I can see, apart from Win 7 itself and and maybe my video card or DVD player(??). From what I can see, DVD43 does scan every DVD whether it is being copied to HDD or not, to allow play regardless of region.

So I was wondering if DVD 43 _does_ alter AR of videos as it scans DVDs.

Thanks for any help
