    on Tuesday 31 march 2020, I archived the Mr Robot complete series DVD box set without incident using AnyDVD HD Ripper. Afterwards, I archived the Mr Robot complete series Blu-ray Disc box set using AnyDVD HD Blu-ray image function whose proper name escapes me at the moment. Every one of the twelve Blu-ray discs in that box set made the programme prompt for a region approximately mid-way through the scan. I selected Region A for all twelve discs because without having the eyesight to see the packaging or discs, I know not whether they are region free or locked to region A. If they are in fact region free in this particular box set, need I re-archive them after making AnyDVD HD prompt for region selection and selecting Region Free? Or, does it matter not if I selected Region A and they are in fact region free? Again, I am interested and curious about the technical differences – especially consequences of selection of a region when a disc is region free.

    If it's region free, you can safely select any region. So you're good.

    Thanks. That was a time-consuming project and I really wanted not do that again with the same series. Have you any idea why a region was prompted for all discs? The setting to make the programme prompt for a region in the Blu-Ray section of the settings panel is disabled. This is not the first instance such a dialogue appeared.

    Not without logfile(s). Some functions like remastering or removing certain copy protections require AnyDVD to know the correct region.

    I failed to upload a log file because perhaps you want one for a certain disc in the series and wanted not upload the wrong one. If you want at least one I will surely upload.

    You need to upload a log of each disc that doesn't work. Logfiles are unique per disc.

    Only if it matters to you. Maybe the answer I gave is enough.

    The discs archived; everything worked. I definitely would have attached a log file if something went awry. My initial question was answered by Pete, but now my question is why some Blu-ray discs prompt for region if the setting specific to that is disabled. James answered that on a high level.

    A log file is attached. I cannot upload more than one; the button does nothing after the first is uploaded.

    Code:
    Removed annoying video sequences!
    
    ... needs to know the region code, if there is one. Setting "A" for discs bought in an "A" country is indeed a good idea.

    Why is that the case? Just trying to alleviate my ignorance. If it is not known if the discs are locked to region A or not locked, is A still a wise choice?

    To help the function to find the right path to the desired content.
    As I said:
    I would call this a "Yes".
