    Been using ANYDVD without much incident for a long time on the same computer with the same configuration. I use Video Vault and/or 1Click DVD 4.2
    One or the other always works. I use ANYDVD for the exclusive purpose to clear the copy protection so I can backup my DVD's. For whatever reason ANYDVD has stopped working. I have a set of 4 DVD's and I get CSS copy errors on all 4. Here is the "status" page:

    Summary for drive D: (AnyDVD
    PHILIPS DVD-ROM DROM6316 OD2F D4157S62819641
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 1

    Media is a DVD.
    Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (parallel)

    Total size: 3720810 sectors (7267 MBytes)

    Video DVD (or CD) label: I_SPY_THIS_GUY_SMITH
    Media is CSS protected!
    Video Standard: NTSC
    Media is locked to region(s): 1 2 3 4 5 6!

    RCE protection not found.
    DVD structure appears to be correct.
    Structural copy protection not found.
    Autorun not found on Video DVD.
    Bad sector protection not found.
    Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 1!

    I have not uninstalled ANYDVD. I have a few older upgrades on my system to reinstall but I don't seem to have any keycode from when I first purchased it back in March 2006 (Approx). Did I get a key code? Anyway, I need this to start working again. I sure hope you can help. Let me know if you need anything else from me.

    That's normal. What's the exact error message you receive from the program you're using?

    4.2 is pretty old, and I'm told it can't handle some newer discs. You may want to try using Anydvd ripper--and then use 4.2. Or simply upgrade or try Clonedvd.
