1. AnyStream is having some DRM issues currently, download with Amazon, Netflix and Hulu is not possible at the moment.
    Situations like this will always happen with AnyStream: streaming providers are continuously improving their countermeasures while we try to catch up, it's an ongoing cat-and-mouse game. Please be patient and don't flood our support or forum with requests, we are working on it 24/7 to get it resolved - but it will take a few days. Thank you.

DVDs only working on computer

    I used to use (the now defunct) Ripit4me, in conjunction with DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink and they worked fine up until about last week, when I tried to make a backup of Surf's Up. The backup worked just fine in the computer (and the PS2, for that matter) but it said "bad disc" in the TV mounted DVD player. I tried a couple other freeware decryptors and they did the same thing, so I just downloaded the trial version of AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 to try them out. I got the exact same problem when trying Transformers, Meet the Robinsons, Planet Terror, and Surf's Up again.

    Is it just the newer DVDs that aren't working? Because I tried an older movie of mine and it worked just fine. (Desperado)

    I'm using the same blank DVDs that I've always used (Memorex DVD-R) and checked to make sure it's compatible with the TV's DVD player and it is. Everything worked just fine up until around a week ago, then I started getting this "bad disc" error on every newer movie I've tried to back-up with every decryptor I've tried using, including AnyDVD. It's really confusing me. :confused:

    1. Ripit4me won't work with some newer protections.

    2. Dvd Decrypter is mostly useless now.

    3. Ensure you're using Anydvd 6.1.9.3

    4. Quit using that Memorex junk. Use Taiyo Yuden Premium or Verbatim (I would avoid ones made in India)

    "10. My backups play on my computer or standalone dvd player, but not in something else. Why?

    First, if the backup is playing in a standalone dvd player or on your computer that means Clonedvd worked.

    The most common reason why you're having this problem (if the backup doesn't work in a standalone dvd player) is due to a compatibility issue between the blank media you're using and whatever you're using to play the backup in (standalone dvd player, for example). Basically your dvd player, dvd-rom drive, etc. doesn't like the blank media you're using (or if you're using +R media, you didn't change the booktype to "dvd-rom"). You can try choosing other blank media (+r instead of -r, for example, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")--or buy a different standalone dvd player (or a different dvd-rom drive, burner, etc.).

    If you're using dvd-r media and your standalone dvd player gives you a message similar to ""Play Prohibited, please check disc", use dvd+r media instead and change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (see "b)" below).

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden 8x premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes".
    b) Click this and read FULLY (especially take a look at point 4 for more information on bitsetting/booktyping, but all points are very important)

    The same factors also apply to why the backup doesn't play in your computer (but there can be other factors including buggy or poorly installed dvd player software, bad drivers, etc.).

    It's also possible the playback device/player that can't play the disc is slowly dying."

    I'll have to try that, but I don't understand why it'll work on older movies I copy, but not the newer ones. I figured if it was a compatibility issue with the discs, the age of the movie I'm trying to copy wouldn't matter.

    If you're using inferior quality blank media, they will vary enough that some may work--and others within the same spindle may not. What you're experiencing may simply be running into some bad blanks (and Memorex is generally not well regarded amongst veterans in the burning community).

    Ahhh ok, thanks. I'll try a better quality DVD and see if it helps at all.
