Hi, sorry for the basic question.
I am using AnyDVD HD and in my case I only want the protected ISO files on my hard drive so I'm just using the "Rip to Image" method with the Keep Protection option checked.
I made an image of Day AFter Tomorrow this way and noticed it wouldn't play with PDVD 8 Ultra 2217a and mounted with Daemon, saying it was an unrecognized format in the drive. Anyway, I don't mean this as a troubleshooting issue really but was curious as when I looked at the "status" of the mounted file in AnyDVD HD, it says
Summary for drive X: (AnyDVD 220.127.116.11)
IHIX 6Z89I74P2 1.03
Drive (Hardware) Region: 1
Media is a Blu-Ray disc.
Total size: 24438784 sectors (47732 MBytes)
Video Blu-ray label: DAT
Media is AACS protected!
Media is BD+ protected!
Removed AACS copy protection!
Is it normal for the AACS protection to be removed with the option to keep protection checked or is this in a different context here?
