    You need to set your drive hardware region in windows device manager. Then try again. EXIT anydvd completely before you do! The tray icon cab not be active.

    Not to pick on the OP, but I swear this solution needs to be a 48 point banner ad in this sub-forum as it accounts for a high percentage of problems/solutions. That and the multiple playlists on Disney titles topic that comes up frequently.

    Anyway, back to the original issue, what exactly prevents the program from being able to rip a disc if the drive is set to 0 (as opposed to any other number?)

    Basically an unset region (not the same as a region free drive!) forces anydvd to apply a bruteforce cracking method to detect the correct css decryption keys. This may not always work, and then prompts anydvd to display that warning. This has an even higher chance on smaller vob files, because anydvd has less material to 'work with'. And this for any region that's inserted.

    When the region is properly set, anydvd can do it 'the right way' at least for the discs region that matches the drive region, and anydvd only has to do bruteforce for regions that don't match the drive. With the set region, maybe anydvd also has a higher success chance to bruteforce different region discs but I'm not entirely sure on that.

    As to the '48 point banner', it already is.


    Item 13b, I've been meaning to condense that sticky down severely but I haven't had the time yet.

    Thanks for the summary info. My original understanding from the early Linux project days was that the actual key was stored on the disc. So a brute force method though, would not the software simply try each region (or ask the user like Blu-rays do) to identify the inserted discs's region? As far as region mismatch, true, I have never had any issues with my region 1 set drive and reading region 2 and region 4 discs, which I guess is fortunate. I'm sure there are programs that would reset the region-change counter on a drive if you had to keep changing it, but I've never had to change it.

    The warning dialog the OP has posted actually says this.
