The "backup" folder is not a anydvd invention to backup the original, the backup folder is part of the blu-ray specification, they are supposed to be the same.
Why need a BACKUP copy on your backup disc? If that one gets damaged, you still have the original - .... or don't you?


Seriously: the real main use of AnyDVD HD is (at least that's my observation) to actually allow people to play their discs on an HTPC (whether or not the region code matches or the hardware is or is not HDCP compliant).
So the backup folders really don't make much sense.

If the differing backup folder ever becomes an issue, rest assured, the following update of AnyDVD will act accordingly

Hi SuperGoof,

just to let you know: now that BD+ is done, I finally found the time to fix our BD-J RC removal, that failed with some recent discs.

The next release (or beta) will do it.
You may want to check whether there are any side effects if a users happens to (for some reason) use both AnyDVD and your tool.
Your approach is a totally different one, so I'm not sure...

Hi Peer,

So you actually spent some time analyzing how my program works? That's cool!

I was thinking about the possibility that some people might run "Blu-ray Region Code Remover" on titles which were already modified by AnyDVD. I will definitely test it when new version of AnyDVD with better support of BD-J region code is available. As it comes to modifications to .class files, I'm pretty confident in the .class file parser I wrote. It modifies the code very carefully, recalculates offsets in all control transfer operations, in tableswitch and lookupswitch operations and in exception tables, and recalculates number of zero bytes in tableswitch and lookupswitch. I'm less confident in the way I treat the content of META-INF folder in .jar files, and I don't touch CERTIFICATES folder at all. May be that's why there are some problems with "Independence Day" (UK).

But in general, as you probably saw, I target the very root functions of BD-J region code check, so I hope if new version of AnyDVD still misses some titles, my program will finish the job.

A suggestion: Why not join the Region Code Remover and the Ripper to ONE program?

I tried to Remove Region Coding from Step Into Liquid which I purchased from the States and it doesn't work.

I used BR RCR v2.4 and selected Region A to remove, then tried playing with AnyDVD enabled using ArcSoft TotalMedia Theater and it came up with the same Incorrect Region Message on playing.

Any suggestions??? btw I'm in Australia with a Region B PS3 which is ultimately what I want to play it on, but I'm not going to burn it out to a BD-R until I'm sure the coding has been removed.
I can handle some DVD-R coasters, but at $16 a pop for BD-R - no thanks!!!

AnyDVD HD is going to have a fix for this type of region coding soon, no worries, mate

Interesting... I thought we (this program and AnyDVD) have already covered all possible Blu-ray region coding. Is this some new type of region coding or a modification of two known types? And even though AnyDVD will soon support it, I'm going to buy the disc to investigate it, too. Are there other discs, except "Step Into Liquid", which have it?

Can you please use "Create Logfile" button to create a logfile and either post it here or send me by email (use the "email" button provided in the program). This could possibly speed up the process of investigaton. Thanks!

I actually meant logfile created with "Blu-ray Region Code Remover" program, not with AnyDVD Though this one might be useful too.

Sorry man, though I had deleted the last rip which was a AnyDVD Rip Video DVD to Harddisk and this time used Rip to Image.
I thought I could play the image with ArcSoft, however it won't recognise and I can't work out if the Region thing has worked this time. I'm still not ready for a coaster, so I hope that AnyDVD Log will be of some value.

Any ideas how I can play an .ISO ripped this way???

SlySoft's free Virtual Clone Drive will mount it and then you'll have a drive letter to play it from, just like the original.

Great program, thanks for that, it sure will come in handy.

Okay just mounted the Step Into Liquid image and it comes up with the Disc Mismatch with Region Message still.

As a fix, so I could watch the movie in it's DTS-HD 7.1 glory, I muxed the m2ts and created a Blu-Ray BD-R which ripped everything else out. Great visuals and awesome sound of the crashing waves/soundtrack.

Well, as I understand this software will remove region from copied version of film. And if I don't want to copy it, just play from blue disk with out checking region?

Right now, I think the only software that can do what you want is AnyDVD HD.
