    Dear Sly-Guy;

    I have been a faithfull AnyDVD user for over 4 years now and the products are GREAT !.

    I am writing here, fore I could use some assistance,....I have a huge collection of Movies and they have all worked well throughout the years.

    They worked fihe on the JVC, 5disc surround sound and then just as great on the Phillips surround sound. Just a few days ago I purchased a Samsung HT-TX72, 5disc surround sound and the when I put in the first disc,...immediately, it loaded the disc and posted, in big bleck letters, PLAYBACK PRHIBITED PLEASE, CHECK DISC. It does this to every one my movies. I tried -RW(since all my movies are +RW), but no luck.

    I have been looking in vain, for the last 3 days to see if anybody has encountered this same problem. What about it ?? Anyone else ?

    Any Assistance would be muchly appreciated,.....

    that sounds like a region conflict or format problem. did you check to see that the region/format (pal/ntsc) is the same and supported?

    if its not that, the next possibility is that it doesnt like rewritable dvds. does a dvd+r booktyped to rom work? afaik that would get past something that detects burned dvds, but im not sure about that.

    No Go

    Hey SlyGuy;

    I tried what was suggested,....but no go, the system loads the disc and says, "PLAYBACK PROHIBITED PLEASE, CHECK DISC"

    Ever heard of this one ?? Are they now included a verifier for disc copies ??

    Hey Zeratul,.............

    Well it seems Samsung is introducing new firmware that can recognize a copied disc,....

    I got around it by recoding the DVDs with Nero Recode. I won't do my whole collection,..only the ones I want to hear in surround.

    thanks for the push into the new line of thought.

    The solution is to change your booktype to "dvd-rom" before burning with +RW blank media (if you burner supports bitsetting changes). Nero does this automatically (usually).

    Notice what's in bold below:

    from Frequently Asked Questions (READ BEFORE YOU POST)

    12. My backups play on my computer or standalone dvd player, but not in something else. Why?

    First, if the backup is playing in a standalone dvd player or on your computer, that means Anydvd and whatever backup program you used worked.

    The most common reason why you're having this problem (if the backup doesn't work in a standalone dvd player) is due to a compatibility issue between the blank media you're using and whatever you're using to play the backup in (standalone dvd player, for example). Basically your dvd player, dvd-rom drive, etc. doesn't like the blank media you're using (or if you're using +R media, you didn't change the booktype to "dvd-rom"). You can try choosing other blank media (+r instead of -r, for example, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")--or buy a different standalone dvd player (or a different dvd-rom drive, burner, etc.).

    If you're using dvd-r media and your standalone dvd player gives you a message similar to ""Play Prohibited, please check disc", use dvd+r media instead and change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (see "b)" below).

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not Valueline), Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes". If you use +R DL blank media use Verbatim +R DL (made in Singapore) or MAM-A 8x +R DL only
    b) Click this and read FULLY (especially take a look at point 4 for more information on bitsetting/booktyping, but all points are very important)

    The same factors also apply to why the backup doesn't play in your computer (but there can be other factors including buggy or poorly installed dvd player software, bad drivers, etc.).

    It's also possible the playback device/player you're using is slowly dying.
