Hey guys I'm new to this dvd decrypting scene and I heard anydvd was the best for this kind of job and afterdawn was the best site for answers..I wa stold anydvd could decrypt almost anything..so I got it but so far it hasn't worked on anything for me.. I tried Dave Chappelle Seasons and it didn't work, so I tried an older dvd that I think would have less protection.."Armagedon" and it didn't work. ....both times I got the same message.it said: "FileIO (3 VTS_04_4.VOB 340496384 479232)" The part in the bracket varies but basically that's the message I get about half ways. Anyone know what could be the problem. Possibly a problem in the settings of the program or I really don't know, anyone have had this problem before? this is what it says for status when i put the dave chappelle season in Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD 184.108.40.206) LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S PGS1 2005/12/12 20:42 Drive (Hardware) Region: 1 Media is a DVD. Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite) Size of first Layer: 1908912 sectors (3728 MBytes) Total size: 3742544 sectors (7309 MBytes) Video DVD (or CD) label: Chappelle's Show Media is CSS protected! Video Standard: NTSC Media is locked to region(s): 1! 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 also tried ripping an OC season and I got this weird message the first time I tried to load the disc... Then when I put it again it finally loads. And then when I run the program it gets up to like 2 percent and then it shows me the message i've been getting on all previous dvds..the "FileIO (3 VTS_04_4.VOB 340496384 479232)" Once again the number part is a bit different on all discs. Also my discs are definitely not dirty or scratched and I have my driver set to region 1 .I checked that under hardware or device manager. I really don't know if It's the settings or the driver but it just don't work..Im gona try this on my other computer with a different driver and will post on how it goes...but this is basically all the info I can get about my situation..hope it helps.. Thnx in adavance and ideas or suggestions are great.
