Hi All I'm a NooB to the Blue Ray market and so far only have a few movies which have all succesfully been watched through my PC using a Lite-On BD B LH-2B15 Drive, AnyDVDHD and Cyberlink PowerDVD player, all of these have the current software versions and the latest firmware versions. Recently I just bought three new titles, Spiderman 3 Region A, Halloween Region A, and Hostel Part II Region A. My problem is all three titles will not play with AnyDVD reporting the following error when trying to read the disc; Summary for drive J: (AnyDVD 126.96.36.199) LITE-ON BD B LH-2B1S AL09 R___ Drive (Hardware) Region: 1 Media is a Blu-Ray disc. Total size: 21118624 sectors (41247 MBytes) Video Blu-Ray label: HOSTEL_2 Media is AACS protected! Failed to send host key! ERROR processing Blu-Ray disc! Now I did run a search on your forums for a related problem but could not find an answer to my particular problem, the only thing I could find was that there seems to be a new form of protection on the disc's that seems to be stopping the movies from being ripped. Myself I have no wish at all to rip the DVD's I just want watch them on my PC and enjoy full HiDef content as it's meant to be watched, am I right in now thinking that from now on, I am going to be denied the experience as a genuine watcher because of copy protection, therefore resulting in me having to fork several hundred more pounds for a stand alone hardware player that at present I did not want to buy, (way too expensive in the UK yet). If anybody nows of a solution to my particular problem can you please help, because my Blue-Ray collect of unplayable movies is steadily rising and costing me a lot of money.
