    I don't know if it is still out there, but there was a trade in program called Red to Blue or something like that. You mailed them the original covers from you HD DVDs and they sent you back blurays for just the cost of shipping. I did that for several HD DVDs I owned.

    Ya, I got a debugger error, Thermida blah blah. Knew it was their copy protection, didn't realize they were exploiting a Microsoft weakness. Makes sense now it will not be fixed. Too bad. I used TMT for two things, really - HD DVD, and the zoom feature for either 'blu' or 'red'. I guess I'll be doing a bit of mkv work on the library now. I (think I) know PDVD doesn't do zoom, leastways not where I've found it. Any alternatives?

    It wasn't a protection, along other things they were doing all sorts of nasty this at the windows kernel level that got patched. It's the reason why in the early days of a development stop a part of their user base received bsod's.

    Themida? It sure was. It is an anti reverse engineer protection. Did it help in any way? No. It only hurts their customers, because the software doesn't work anymore.
