    I have AnyDVD and AnyDVDHD and for the most part I don't have any problems. However I have some of the older RCE DVD's. Charlie's Angels R1being one of them and I am struggling to get past the RCE.
    My Drive is coded as R2 as is AnyDVD default region and PowerDVD.

    I have seen this in the FAQ

    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

    Is this the course of action that I should be taking or will it impair my ability to play R2 discs (the vast bulk of my collection)?

    Thanks in advance for any help here.

    1. a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. 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 [​IMG]
    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"

    2) 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?

    For RCE encoded discs, just verify that AnyDVD removed the protection (check its status window). Make sure, that AnyDVD's region (not the hardware region of the drive!) is set to the region of the disc (in other words - always leave it set to 1, as AFAIK all RCE discs are locked to region 1)
    More information can be obtained by clicking the right mouse button on AnyDVD's region controls.
