Does AnyDVD HD keep all protection when option checked

    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 6.5.0.7)
    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?

    Thanks,

    Andre

    Hello, Andre and welcome to forum we need to address two problems here.

    1. Don’t use deamon tools it is known to cause problem with slow ripping and playback as well. Instead use Virtual Clone Drive it is free from slysoft. Available at download page at slysoft.

    2. Second could make sure it is removing both AACS and BD+ from disk. IF AACS is only removed not BD+ then it will cause problem like one you described. (Should you have problem determining then just paste log file).

    3. It is prefectly normal to remove AACS and if you have BD+ to remove that as well.(All Fox Disc has BD+)

    To create a log file

    1. Insert the disc you want to create log file for.
    2. Left click on anydvd in system tray (where time displays) choose “Create Logfile”
    3. Logfiles are created in the subdirectory "AnyDVD_logs" in the
    user's documents folder.
    4. When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread
    5. If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip
    6. A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    7. Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file which was created.
    8. Click "upload"
    9. Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at.

    1. To mount image download Virtual clone drive from slysoft.
    2. http://www.slysoft.com/en/download.html
    3. Look for this “Virtual CloneDrive (Freeware)” and download it.
    4. Install program
    5. Browse or navigate to my documents folder look for folder which is you movie folder, in this case it is SPIDER_MAN_3
    6. You will see two files, double click on ISO files the main one.
    7. Make sure Anydvd is running and enabled
    8. Last but not least enjoy your blu-ray. Just as you will do with original disc but this time it is gone be playing form hard drive.

    Thanks for the quick reply. This forum seems to have some great people and fantastic information.

    I did not know this was a problem. I have VCD from when I bought anyDVD so I will remove daemon tools and start using that. Is there information about how to use it with paramaters, from command line as I use front end automation software and need to mount and unmount the files from that software?

    I will provide the log file for Day After Tomorrow in a little while as my machine is in the middle of ripping another movie but can you tell me if I understand this correctly?

    In my case, I am happy with having a copy of the original disk on my hard drive, so I am using the option to KEEP all protection when I make the image. I know I have to have anyDVD running and that I can't burn back to disk but that's ok for me. When the process is a little more developed, I would be happy to reduce the file size but until then, I am happy with the protected ISO file on my drive for playback. So, if I keep all protection, all I need to do is make sure I have that option checked when I make the image and then make sure anyDVD is running before I mount the image and start PowerDVD. Is this right?

    Thanks, Andre

    Yes. Use the latest beta.
    From the cli, type start vcdmount to see the parameters.

    WOW, you guys can be fast, thanks James.

    I see the paramaters, that's great. 2 quick questions:

    1. I checked the Virtual Sheep option but cannot see any icon in my system tray related to VCD. Should it be there. I also rebooted but no effect.

    2. I mounted an image by simply double clicking the image file and it mounted and selected the next drive letter available to me, in my case, "H". When I try to mount an image to "X", or any letter other than "H", it doens't work and just says error opening file or something to that effect. I have 1 drive selected as an option. How do you change the drive letter you want to use as default?

    Also, if you're looking James, can you confirm my understanding on my second point in my previous message please? When I installed VCD, it shut down anyDVD so my rip was stopped so here is the Day After Tomorrow log file. Error in PDVD 8 Ultra 2217a is "There is a disk with an unsupported format in drive H"

    Thanks, Andre.

    The sheep aren't in your system tray. They are the drive icons. You may want to read the manual.

    With windows disk management.

    Sorry, I can't follow. :confused:

    James SlySoft Development Team Staff Member

    Right. In any case, you should keep AnyDVD running all the time.

    Okay, got it. I thought the drive letter was a temporary assignment, only while an image was mounted. BTW, manual read, all page of it Should have done that first:)


    My other question was about seeing the message that "AAC protection has been removed" in the status area of anyDVD HD, despite having checked the option to keep all protection. I was wondering if that was related to why I was having problems playing Day After Tomorrow which was ripped as a protected image but won't play in DVD 8 as I mentioned. I just wasn't sure what the message was telling me in anyDVD HD as I thought the image would exist with all protection, including AAC. Again, sorry if these are basic questions but I am reading and learning as I go here and all help is certainly appreciated.

    I will start a new thread to troubleshoot that after I look around if I don't find any similar posts.

    Thanks, Andre

    Okay, thanks. I'll check for similar posts as I'm not sure why Day After Tomorrow won't play but I'll post a new thread if I don't find anything.

    Thanks, Andre.

    You have problematic filters install and need to be removed. Bear in mind which ever program installs them they won’t work anymore. If you need functionality of those program. Use DVD Ram instead with Fat 32 file system.

    Filter Name: clbstor
    File Name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Drivers\clbstor.sys
    File Version: 5.0.3004 [5.0.0.3004]
    File Description: Cyberlink Storage Helper Driver (WindowsNT5.x)
    Product Name:
    Product Version: 5.0.3004 [5.0.0.3004]
    Company Name: Cyberlink Co.,Ltd.
    Copyright: Copyright(C) Cyberlink Co.,Ltd.

    Cyberlink Instantburn packet writing software

    To remove them follow instructions

    1.
    i) Create a backup of your registry: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756

    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
    (it's also an excellent program)

    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order.

    Select "clbstor". Click "remove selected filter".

    Click "ok".

    2.

    Reboot, once done create another log file and post it.

    Keep in mind that the programs that installed those filters may no longer function properly.

    3 After restart of computer Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok". (This will enable it to remove BD+ which it was not removing before)

    4.Try to play again then.

    Thank you for the information. I'm a little confused now though. Just a couple of basic questions;

    1. The only Cyberlink product I have is PowerDVD 8 Ultra and this has to work so I'm not sure if I can remove this filter. I don't know about DVD Ram but can certainly read about it and how to use it if I have to go that route.

    2. My other question is just related to why I'm confused when you suggest that it isn't removing the BD+ protection. I am ripping with ALL PROTECTION LIFT IN THE ISO file. So I'm not trying to remove the protection but when you say remove it, is that because you mean that anyDVD has to remove it in real time so I can play the image I made and when I look at the status, I can see that it is able to remove the AACS but not BD+ protection for that movie. Is that corrrect?

    If it is, then will I have this issue with all BD+ disks until I remove that filter? If so, then I guess I'll have to look into the DVD Ram solution you mentioned, although right now, I don't know what that is.

    Thanks to you and all that have patience for us new to this,

    Andre

    PowerDVD doesn't require or install this filter.
     
  13. James

    James SlySoft Development Team Staff Member

    Make sure, BD+ removal is activated. In AnyDVD settings, click "default".

    As james has told you PowerDVD doesn't require or install this filter. I am telling you based on the log file you gave. That this filter has to go. (It could be possible someone one else install it)

    Filter like these create problem for many program. Including Anydvd as well.

    True enough when you were ripping it didn’t remove protection if “keep protection box was checked” However to play image file it MUST remove it or else it is simply useless.

    No, If you don’t remove this filter you may also have trouble with AACS removal as well. James developer of Anydvd hate these filters for reason. They cause lot of problem with programs including anydvd

    You may also have problem with Standard DVD disc. You may be lucky so far if you haven't run into problem with standard DVD.

    Bottom line remove this filter and Make sure, BD+ removal is activated. In AnyDVD settings, click "default". Is quickest way to go to make sure it remove BD+ as well.

    Then try to play it.

    Thank you both very much, especially for the detailed information.

    I think there was some demo Cyberlink software on my machine when I picked it up and although it was removed via Control Panel, it obviously left some items behind, so I have removed the filter via imgburn.

    I have also checked the option to remove BD+ protection. I was confused because I didn't realize that these two areas were not connected. I thought the option on the ripping screen was connected to the Settings area so I wasn't sure why it had to be checked. I understand that it must be removed for playback. I guess Day After Tomorrow was just the first BD+ title I came to in my BD collection, which is still very small.

    My other, non BD disks, about 400 of them, seem to be okay. I have tested most of them when I ripped them and they play okay.

    I thought I would have to rip the movie again so I deleted it before and am now redoing DAT with both items corrected so I'm sure it will be fine but I'll post an update when it's done.

    Thanks again,

    Andre

    The "remove BD+" checkbox will be gone in the next AnyDVD version, to avoid this confusion in the future. If you use "rip to image" and keep the protection, all settings are ignored, so you don't to worry.

    Good idea it doesn't make sense to remove only AACS and not BD+ or vice versa. Will we still have option to specify to remove region code.
     
  18. James

    James SlySoft Development Team Staff Member

    Not any more, no.

    Sure. I'm even thinking about removing the "Enable Blu-ray support" and "Enable HD DVD support" checkboxes.

    Possibly that may be the case. Anyway once done can you please put new set of log file. Just to make sure everything went okay.

    I have also checked the option to remove BD+ protection. I was confused because I didn't realize that these two areas were not connected. I thought the option on the ripping screen was connected to the Settings area so I wasn't sure why it had to be checked. I understand that it must be removed for playback. I guess Day After Tomorrow was just the first BD+ title I came to in my BD collection, which is still very small.

    My other, non BD disks, about 400 of them, seem to be okay. I have tested most of them when I ripped them and they play okay.

    Please do so, also take a look at my screenshot and compare it to yours to see if you have everything done correctly. However don’t worry about “Disable BD-Live” and “Remove Blu-ray Region Code”

    Any reason you don't want UOPs to removed?
