    Hi,

    I am new to this stuff, and I am a little perplexed by a message I am receiving in DVD DeCrypter.

    Upon starting the program, it populates the file window just fine, but I receive an error message via a pop-up window, that reads:

    Device: [1:1:0] SONY DVD RW DRU-530A 1.0c (F:)
    Media region code is mismatched to logical unit region!
    The slower 'Brute Force' VOBdec/DeCSSPlus cracking methods will be used instead of I/O Key Exchange.
    Visit http://www.rpc1.org for Region Free (RPC Phase1) Firmware.

    endquote.

    I don't understand, why I am receiving the error, because the disk(s) I am trying to read are region 1 so is the DVD writer, the PC and everything.

    Further: www.rpc1.org does not seem to exist.

    When trying to rip anyway, several files pop up error messages claiming "DCSS failed, no vulnerable sectors found" I had tried to use the same DVD with DVD Shrink, where it had failed, therefore as a reverse test, I repeated the Decrypter operation with a DVD that had succeded in DVD Shrink, but I ran into the same problems.

    Maybe I am overlooking something totally simple here, but any advice would be appreciated.

    Bill

    Hi Bill,

    there seems to be some problem at rpc1, but try this link for the direct sony download page at rpc1

    http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=4&manufactor=30

    You'll find a newer firmware and a link to the region free program. I don't really know the details about region free, I never had any problems, but maybe you'll find more help over there. Hope this helps!!

    Thanks for your advice. I just got fed up with the Sony returned it, got a Plextor 708A and now everything is dandy....
