    Hi im having some problems ripping my blu ray disc. When i open the AnyDVD icon it recognises that theres a blue ray disc inserted:

    Summary for drive G: (AnyDVD
    HL-DT-ST BD-REGBW-H10N GL05 001121061C68AG1129
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 0 (not set!)

    Media is a Blu-Ray disc.
    Total size: 11826176 sectors (23098 MBytes)

    However when i try to rip video DVD to hardisk it gives me the message Drive G:i is not ready!

    Does anyone get similar problems or please advise me on this situation?

    I don't know witch movie your trying to rip but it sounds like to me you got one of them newer BDs that cant be riped yet, when I try to rip surfs up fantastic 4 2 I also get the same error some also say 28 weeks also can't be riped havent tryed myself that one and theres a few others,
    All I can advise is try a different BD disc thats all I can advise of my experience! perhaps a older BD movie one thats been around a lil while
    I have backed like 40 so far and only the last two weeks have been problems
    for me,
    also the beta version witch is newer may help you also u may wanna try it
    below was posted by James origionally
    This is a major rewrite (which is always a little scary), but it has been well tested, so I don't expect any major problems.

    Here are the changes: 2007 10 09
    - New (DVD): New "AI Scanner(tm)" copy protection removal
    - New (DVD): Added support for new copy protections
    - New (DVD): CSS brute force cracking (region code mismatch) works
    now much better with Arccos/RipGuard/ProtectDVD/FluxDVD ...
    protected discs
    - New (DVD): UDF remastering of .IFO and .BUP files
    - New (HD DVD & Blu-ray): Support for new titles
    - Fix (DVD) AnyDVD ripper could complain, that the destination
    directory has insufficient space
    - Fix (HD DVD & Blu-ray): Large I/O requests could cause the
    "Magic File Replacement(tm)" to malfunction
    - Fix: Integrity check could issue a false alarm
    - Some minor fixes and improvements
    - Updated languages

    this is what my status window looks like I don't know but it looks like you left out some info on urs

    Media is a Blu-Ray disc.
    Total size: 24438784 sectors (47732 MBytes)
    Video Blu-Ray label: FANTASTIC4_2
    Media is AACS protected!
    Failed to send host key!
    ERROR processing Blu-Ray disc!

    Hope it helps

    Thanks for your answer.

    Actually it is not a BD Video but a BD-R someone has burnt for me. Does that change anything in the process? I really need to rip the containt!

    Let me know,

    This isn't entirely true, at least you can use old titles if you have accidentally "blacklisted" your drive by trying to play a new one.

    If it is a BD-R just try copying and pasting the contents to your hard drive-if you can look at the contents of the disc that is-you would need a UDF 2.5 driver if you are using windows XP.

    But like I said it still doesn't do new AACS or BD+ so it was true

    thanks for help so far. Actually my aim is to convert the video into a different video format such as avi or capture screenshots of the video every 1 second?? any suggestions on how this could be done??

    there isn't much available on that front yet.
    Check out this thread though:

    It hasn't happened to me yet and I don't see how it could be possible, but does reinstalling Vista remove the blacklisting?
  11. James

    James Redfox Development Team Staff Member

    No. The revocation list is stored in nonvolatile memory inside your drive.

    You probably mean host certificate(s)? Blacklisting a drive is probably much worse, if such thing exists at all.
  13. James

    James Redfox Development Team Staff Member

    You're right, I meant that the drive has blacklisted the host certificate.

    Does this render the drive useless? Is it separate write-once non-volatile memory or part of the firmware memory? If it's write-once, do you think it might be possible to fill it with data that prevents the blacklisting mechanism from working? If it's part of the firmware then couldn't it be fixed by rewriting to it.

    No, it will render useless those programs (e.g. PowerDVD) which use blacklisted host certificate to communicate with drive.

    AnyDVD HD, even if it is not updated to use some new certificate, will not be rendered completely useless, as it uses a database of keys as a backup solution, so it does not need to communicate with drive to decrypt known titles.
