The answer is simple.
1. None, there is no purpose. The !ANY folder is the renamed AACS or BD+ (BD Protection) folder (not sure wich one) and can safely be removed if wanted. Standalone players & software players just skip it
2. U don't, any BD disc that is protected by AACS and u rip it will have the !ANY folder
thats all. Nothing to worry about. If the backups don't play on your standalone then you're probably using crappy blank media.
The easiest way to backup a disc is rip to iso with AnyDVD and burn the ISO with IMGBurn back to a blank.
