Newer dvds css key protection

The last few dvds I have backed up (Gremlins (Special ED) and Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 1) have given me a message that Any DVD is unable to remove all css key protection. Some titles may not play properly. Any DVD will try and guess at the key protection. So far it has worked. Has anyone else had this issue? Just curious if there is a fix in the works? Thanks you, Jeff.
It happens, that anydvd has to guess the key. That's normal. Nothing to worry about. It works in most cases.

14. Anydvd pops up with a message everytime I place this one dvd in the drive. The error message says unable to find CSS key due to region mismatch and that I need to set my dvd drive region to the same as the dvd to avoid this error in the future. Does anyone know how to do this?

a) You can usually ignore that error message, and Anydvd will still work properly with your burning program.

b) If you're still having problems, this is what you do

i. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
ii. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
iii.Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
iv. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
v. Click "properties".
vi. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
vii. Select the region that matches the region on the disc
viii. Start Anydvd
ix. click the fox icon on your toolbar. Go to Video dvd--->settings
x. Change the default to match the region on the disc
xi. Click Ok
