Just tried to back-up a DVD and received the "This DVD is copy-protected" error popup stating that the disc was protected with CSS. I never encountered this before. I am running AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 in the background and CloneDVD2 184.108.40.206. This shouldn't be a new protection, as the DVD came out in 2004. I just added 2 new burners to my computer as my others wore out: Sony DVD RW DRU-830-A and Lite-On DVD RW LH-20A1H. I don't see this as connected to the problem, but since I added new hardware do I need to uninstall and reinstall AnyDVD and CloneDVD2? I tried to use the CSS Key Archive in AnyDVD but didn't really know what I was doing since I've never had to try it before. Anyhow, the Status window in AnyDVD looks like this: Summary for drive D: (AnyDVD 220.127.116.11) SONY DVD RW DRU-830A SS25 FEB01 ,2007 Drive (Hardware) Region: 1 Media is a DVD. Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite) Size of first Layer: 2070208 sectors (4043 MBytes) Total size: 4119328 sectors (8045 MBytes) Video DVD (or CD) label: CONTRACT STAR Media is CSS protected! Video Standard: NTSC Media is locked to region(s): 1 2 3 4 5 6 8! Finally - and this may be the answer - the DVD is an HD DVD. I thought I'd backed one of these up before, but I now think I'm mistaken. Is this the reason I can not back up my DVD? Sorry if I'm wasting anyone's time.
