    It means your drive didn't transmit its host key (unique to the drive) which anydvd needs to decrypt the disc. Could be a disc or drive problem.

    Other discs are working fine, but this one causes problems in my second drive (same ASUS model) as well, it sometimes even is not recognized - drive is shown empty in Windows Explorer and AnyDVD status window...

    It seems, that your drive is not "friendly".

    It has to be friendly, since I have decrypted many UHDs already...

    ASUS BW-16D1HT with FW 3.01 - logically not patched to higher FW!

    In this case, there seems to be something wrong with the disc.

    Try checking the cables cause this isn't normal behavior

    Now it decrypts in my internal drive (not the USB one) - and I did not change anything concerning cables or other HW!

    The USB one is that usb 2.0 or 3.0, cause for (UHD) BD ya really need 3.0 for optimal speed...

    3.0

    I'd say borderline defective disc or dirty disc.

    Nevertheless, it works!

    Sometimes, those technical things seem to have their own spirit...
