Discussion in 'AnyDVD HD (DVD issues)' started by piel, Mar 8, 2008.
I'm using 18.104.22.168 on Vista and I can't get it to work for any Bond film
Follow the steps in the order they are listed
1. Use Anydvd 22.214.171.124: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=93915&postcount=1
You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.
2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".
3. If you use DVDShrink, Nero Recode, or programs that generally can't handle structural protections, right-click on the fox icon on your toolbar and select "Rip video-dvd to Hard Disk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want. This is an important step if the original disc contains structural protection.
You don't need to do this if you own Clonedvd or are planning to make a backup with Clonecd.
4. Use the latest Clonedvd: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=84511&postcount=1
5. Follow the steps from this link in order: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=476 (follow them step by step)
If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=327
6. If you still have problems, then . . .
a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
d) Select "Create Logfile"
e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
g) Go to your My Documents folder
h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
m) click "upload"
n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at
B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?
C) Click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=5091 to see if your question has already been answered
thanks for the quick repoly -
the specific problem is in fact posted here:
Handbrake can't find the titles and it says that means the copy protection has not been cracked. Thoughts?
This is likely a problem with the structural protection on the discs.
(1) You didn't post a log file as Webslinger noted in his instructions. Please do so. It would be useful to see.
(2) Are you trying to use HandBrake directly on the disc in the DVD drive? Try ripping the disc to your HDD and then using HandBrake on the output now located on the HDD.
Knowing something a bit more specific like what exact Bond movies you are having a problem with would also be useful.
Do step 3 from my original reply and use those files as the source--not the original disc.
And also do step 6A.
Casino Royale unsurprisingly throws the error about no title found when accessing the disc with HandBrake due to its structural protection. There is no such issue when the disc is first ripped with the AnyDVD ripper and that output is used for Handbrake's input.
here's the log - i will rip to my desktop and see what happens
Your drive has no region set. It may not be the cause problems with other discs but with this one AnyDVD is having issues obtaining a titlekey and this can happen as a result of your region not being set.
To set your drive region:
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 you're in
viii. Start Anydvd
Having said the above, when you run into an error as you did I'd recommend first ripping the disc to the HDD with the AnyDVD ripper first. With this particular title setting the drive region might resolve the problem but I can't say for sure. At the very least AnyDVD should correctly obtain the titlekey.
Region is actually set to 1 and I have since tried Handbrake from HDD - still the same problem. Does that suggest that handbrake is the culprit?
It's not unless you did what Drinklyeanddie wrote. Anydvd needs to be disabled when you check.
Did you use Anydvd ripper? Did you select the video_ts folder that Anydvd creates on your hard drive as the source when using Handbrake?
According to the log the drive isn't set:
If AnyDVD isn't able to correctly obtain a titlekey then the impacted title can't be decrypted. If the title is still encrypted and yet ripped to your HDD then when HandBrake goes to deal with the title obviously won't be able to be handled.
Since I've never actually experienced the problem with AnyDVD not being able to obtain a titlekey I don't know if the AnyDVD ripper will throw an error and stop or whether it will complete the rip.
Please follow my directions and set your drive region and try ripping the disc again and then using HandBrake.
Use AnyDVD with DVDShrin3.2 - NEVER a problen,
Thanks for all the suggestions. I have gone and ensured that the DVD is set to the correct region, have made sure the default settings are there for AnyDVD and have ripped the movie to the HDD. Here's the log file. Handbrake still can't read it properly.
Then either Handbrake is faulty or you're doing something wrong in Handbrake.
The original disc only contains CSS. That's about as basic as it gets. The files from Anydvd ripper will not contain any protection.
This resolved my issue with these DVD's
In HandBrake go to Tools, Options, "Advanced/Other" tab and check the box next to DVD: to "Disable LibDVDNav". Bam! Should do the trick.
