    "Apocalypto" (R2, Germany)
    - New (HD DVD & Blu-ray): Support for new titles
    - New (Blu-ray): Added signature fixing (e.g., Pirates 1&2)
    - New: If AnyDVD hangs on exit, it will terminate itself after a

    start menu is back! Please note, that AnyDVD must be running for this
    shortcut to work.
    - Fix (DVD): Dummy titles on Arccos protected discs could cause a
    Navigation Pack Error with CloneDVD or the AnyDVD ripper

    decrypted correctly, e.g. "Deja Vu" (EUR-Germany) hung at the
    layer break position when played back with PowerDVD
    - Fix (HD DVD & Blu-ray): File sizes of files mapped with "Magic File
    Replacement(tm)" and copied with AnyDVD HD ripper could be incorrect.
    - Fix (HD DVD & Blu-ray): Multithreaded access to AACS decrypted files could
    cause incorrect decryption
    - Some minor fixes and improvements
    - Updated languages

    Should anyone experience issues installing Anydvd (most people don't), do this:

    1.
    a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Try running a registry cleaner program at this point like CCleaner
    e) Download Anydvd http://static.slysoft.com/SetupAnyDVD.exe
    f) Exit all Slysoft programs (including Anydvd, Clonedvd2, Clonecd, Clonecdtray, Clonedvdmobile, etc.). Check Windows Task Manager if you have to.
    g) At this point disable your antivirus and firewall programs
    h) Reinstall
    i) Reboot
    j) Install your license key (if required) http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=732
    k) At this point enable your antivirus and firewall programs

    Saw III

    Just a quick question, but first here's my status window for Saw III

    Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD 6.1.6.0)
    SONY CD-RWCRX320EE RYK4 SEP21 ,2005
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 1

    Media is a DVD.
    Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite)
    Size of first Layer: 2084960 sectors (4072 MBytes)
    Total size: 4169920 sectors (8144 MBytes)

    Video DVD (or CD) label: Saw_3_Unrated
    Media is CSS protected!
    Video Standard: NTSC
    Media is locked to region(s): 1!

    RCE protection not found.
    DVD structure appears to be correct.
    Found & removed structural copy protection (Arccos, Puppetlock)!
    Found & removed bogus title set!
    Autorun not found on Video DVD.
    Found & removed 6 bad sector protections!
    Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 1!

    I'm just playing around with the new versions of Clonedvd and Anydvd. I threw in Saw III, and to my surprise, the status window is different.

    Previous versions of anydvd reported something like "found and removed 88 bad sector protections". This version only reports 6. My question is: is Anydvd reading this disc correctly? I'm ripping it right now w/clonedvd and everything seems to be working great as usual. I was just puzzled by the decrease in bad sector protections.

    I'm not sure. Can you try importing the disc directly into Recode with Anydvd running in the background please? If that works, then I would guess Anydvd is working properly despite reporting fewer bad sector protections.

    You are using the exact same disc, right (and not one that has been updated by Sony)?

    Which one did you use before?

    Yeah, I bought this disc the day it came out back in January. It wasn't replaced by the big S.

    I used Anydvd and Clonedvd and ripped the entire disc without any issues. Then, the ouput files imported just fine into Recode.

    Next, I put the original disc back in w/Anydvd running. The entire disc imported just fine into Recode as well with no issues.

    However, I never actually tried transcoding the output files (1st time) or original disc (2nd time) with Recode because I don't actually have a need to back this disc up right now. In both cases, since the files and the disc imported with no issues, I assumed Recode would've handled them without a problem because they imported with no problem.

    Hope this helps.

    James, I'm not sure of the exact version number. However I'm almost positive it was a version prior to the re-writing of the Anydvd Ripper.

    I did find the following from this thread.

    I also found a status log here [6.1.3.0] and here [6.1.1.4]. The two status logs for 6.1.1.4 are different. But these last two links are both Sony drives and see 90 bad sectors instead of the 89 shown above.

    James, I did a little research. That, along with the help of DrinkLyeandDie, I was able to narrow the Anydvd version down. Saw 3 was released in the U.S. on Jan 23rd and I bought it the day it was released. The current version of Anydvd at the time (6.1.0.7) could not handle the disc (at least for me, I got an error from Clonedvd saying it was trying to repair the disc structure but couldn't). The next incarnation of Anydvd (6.1.1.3) was able to handle the disc structure without issues. That was the version that I believe gave me around 88-90 bad sector protections on it. Any time there is a new Anydvd release, I usually use Saw 3 as a litmus test to establish that I have everything working alright. To my knowledge, from version 6.1.1.3 on gave me a large number of bad sectors until 6.1.6.0 was released today. Again though, as I posted earlier, 6.1.6.0 handled it great; just gave me a different status window.

    Thanks for a great product!

    Thanks for the "in case" instructions. for the first time, Any DVD would not load, the annoying thing was, it wouldn't uninstall either? I ran my reg cleaner and tried again, this enabled the uninstall.

    I then followed the instructions to the letter and 6.1.6.0 is installed, no problems.:) I assume it's working OK, I will test it later when I have more time.

    Thanks again Webslinger, what would we do without you and Slysoft? :bowdown: :)

    Regarding the difference in the number of "bad sector protections":
    I analysed it and I believe this will not cause any problems.

    Out of curiosity, is what 6.1.5.5 reports for bad sectors on those discs more accurate than what 6.1.6.0 reports? I understand there are no functional problems with 6.1.6.0. I'm just wondering if 6.1.6.0 is reporting accurate information.

    In case of SAW3 I believe the number from 6.1.6.0 is more correct, but it doesn't matter much anyway.

    EDIT: I believe the previous approach to mark all suspicious title sets as potential "bad sector graves" is more safe in the long run, so I will probably change it back. But, it doesn't matter. AnyDVD ripper and CloneDVD will ignore these title sets anyway, so it makes no difference.

    My "not removing all the protection" alarm bells are ringing again! Ahhhhh!

    Seriously, if it doesn't remove all bad sector protections (if I understood correctly) then how does it rip the DVD properly?

    My alarm bells rang, too! But it does rip the DVD properly.

    To explain it a little more: AnyDVD cannot know how many "bad error ranges" really exist on a DVD, because if you hit one it already is too late.
    So, the number AnyDVD tells you is just what AnyDVD believes *might* be a bad sector protection. These numbers might have changed in previous releases as well, as the detection mechanism was tuned from time to time. Going from 90 down to 6 might look a little disturbing, but it is okay.
