    Has anyone successfully backed up Hitman and played from HDD?

    I have tried once using "remove region code: Automatic". Will not play from HDD, getting same message as playing from disc...."Format not supported...bla bla bla"

    I remember backing up DAT, F4:ROSS, and Die Hard 4 all with BD+ to my HDD and playing from there, this movie doesn't seem to like that.

    After using Nero 8 to make a copy and then getting the same region A error message, I right clicked and jumped to chapter 13, played fine. Went back to chapter 1 and voila, the movie started to play in all it's glory.

    I am going to re-back it up on cpu and see if the same is possible from HDD. Also, going upstairs to see if it will play in PS3.

    Did you have AnyDVD HD running in the background when you made the copy? Did it remove the AACS? And what version of PowerDVD are you running?

    PDVD did not work from HDD.
    Nero Showtime worked for both the disc copy and the playback from HDD.
    Disc did not play in PS3.

    AACS was not present on disc when copied and yes AnyDVD HD was performing in the background.

    I was only able to get it to play from disc from a compliant HTPC and projector with PDVD v3730.

    Yes there are three subfolders on the disc. I am on the road today, but will be home later on, I will cut and paste the status screen of anydvd hd.

    Hmmm, I know my projector is not HDCP compliant and I was able to play.

    I was able to rip the movie to my hard drive. However, I get a Blue Screen of Death when I play it with PowerDVD 3319a! Has anyone else had that problem? This is with Windows XP.

    I got the same thing with Nero 8!

    Just asking. My Ps3 wont play any disc's authored with sub folders. The BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders must be root folders.

    The chapter titles were greyed out in PDVD, but not with Showtime. Here is the capsule from my rip:

    ummary for drive E: (AnyDVD
    SONY BDRW BWU-100A 1.0E FEB23 ,2007BRF2
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 1

    Media is a Blu-Ray disc.
    Total size: 11826176 sectors (23098 MBytes)
    Video Blu-Ray label: HITMAN
    Media is not AACS protected.
    Blu-Ray disc is region free!

    Should I rip BD+ discs as an .iso image instead of ripping them to folders? Will POwerDVD 3319a play BD+ .iso files? I thought folders was the only way to play a ripped BD+ disc?

    Is there anyway to go from folders back to a .iso image?

    Playing HITMAN From Hard Drive (Sorta)

    If you remove the first file (0000.*) in the BDVSM folder, you will still get the "need to update firmware for this player" message, but at the bottom will appear a CONTINUE link that you can use to get past this screen.

    HOWEVER, you can get all the way to the HITMAN menu, but PowerDVD shuts off right after the Fox logo presentation screen (the one with the music) right before the movie would start playing.

    If you get rid of the first and second folder (00001.*) is the second, then you get to the same point as before, but a notice pops up saying a buffer overrun has occurred and PowerDVD must now close.

    If you get rid of all three files (0000.*,00001.*,0002.*) then you get to the same point (right before the movie), but powerdvd just locks up.

    Maybe some enterprising, bright hacker can use that buffer overrun to get us to actually playing the movie:bowdown:

    (Edit) By the way, whatever you move/change from the BDVSM folder, you need to also do to the BDVSM/Backup folder as well or it will not work(at least from what my tinkering shows)

    Anyway, its not a total ability to play from the HDD, but its a start:confused:

    I took that one step further, I overwrote the bdsvm with the one from IceageBD+ (works in 3319). Then I copied over the folders in Iceage that were not in Hitman, so that they had identical folder structures. It now plays fine right up to the main feature. This plays but, is very choppy. I can't find anything that fixes that, but thanks for the tip, this is kinda fun tinkering with it..

    You can't use a BDSVM folder from another film, it won't decode the video properly
