    Hello Everyone,

    I'm using the latest AnyDVD ( and this is the first time I've ever encountered a problem. The movie is The Night Listener (Miramax release) and when I put in the DVD I get the message "AnyDVD is unable to crack all the CSS keys on this disc!", etc. so I'm wondering if this is a new protection? It also says on the error window "To avoid this message in the future, you should set your drive region code to match the region of this disc". If the latter is what I need to do to resolve the issue, how would I do that on a Pioneer DVR-111D drive? Otherwise, could someone please advise where to go from here with this? Below are the details, thanks to you all for your help with this.

    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
