I am having similar problems. I have a computer that we have used to make DVD's using Any / Clone DVD for 2 years now. Suddenly I start getting these "isProtected 2" errors. The Clone DVD process works fine, but the DVD will not play in a standalone DVD player. I am using the same media as before (Memorex DVD-R 16x). The player is a Toshiba. I can play the recorded DVD's on the computer that made the copies, but when I put them in the Toshiba I either get a "load" message -meaning it does not see the DVD or I get a message that says "DVD-R" and on the screen it just shows "DVD-R" and does nothing at all. I didn't find this out until I burned about 10 DVD's that will not play now. I installed Any / Clone DVD on my laptop to try it and I get the same "isProtected 2" message when I put a DVD in while Any DVD is running. I am going to try a test copy and burn with the laptop, I have used it before and it has always worked. Any ideas?????
