Trying to back-up a few TV series DVD's where the DVD"s are not being read properly by a stand alone DVD player. The DVD's were scanned using VSO Inspector which reported that the DVD's surface and files were apparently fine. But the DVD media may be just starting to deteriorate due to aging and therefore starting to cause read problems for the DVD player. Tried using AnyDVD version 22.214.171.124, and then version 126.96.36.199 to decrypt/deprotect the DVD's before copying the DVD's using CloneDVD. AnyDVD reported that CSS protection was removed and that no other protections were found on the discs. CloneDVD was then used to copy the discs, and then the copies were burned using Imgburn and PowerISO. Tried using different DVD media from Sony, TDK, SKC and Verbatim. Burn speeds were limited to 8x to ensure good quality burn. Unfortunately all of the DVD copies will not play (properly). While attempting to play the copies, usually get the main menu appearing, but as soon as an episode is selected to play, the player stops and all of the menus disappear. The DVD's just no longer play. Tried using two other DVD copy programs which have integrated decryption/deprotection, and both of these programs successfully removed encryption/protection. The DVD copies made worked fine after using these two programs! So it seems that AnyDVD does not appear to remove the protections? Why not? Does there have to be a live internet connection while using AnyDVD in order for AnyDVD to check for protection schemes? Is there some special setting required in AnyDVD to have it work properly? For reference, I'm on a slow dial-up internet connection, so I don't know if that has any effect(?) Running Windows 7 SP1 x64, and burning discs using a Lite-On iHAS324 burner.
