6.8.0.0 cannot crack True_Grit

When I try to play it in my computer with 6.8.0.0, the playback is pixelated and freezes. It appears AnyDVD cannot properly decrypt whatever copy protection is on this newer disk. Here’s a copy/paste from the status section. Note this is True Grit for U.S. release (region 1):

When I play it in a regular Samsung DVD player attached to a TV, it plays fine. So it’s not that the disk is bad, as it’s brand new, with a pristine write side (no scratches).

Same problem here - cannot get to play on tower PC with AnyDVD loaded. Win7Ultimate 64bit
DVD Shrink says 3MB total on DVD… ???

6.78; 6.75; 6.5… no luck :confused:

I rolled back to 6.0.5.0 and no luck. Supposedly in another thread, someone decrypted a standard DVD (like mine) with 6.0.1.8 I couldn’t find a version that far back.

Try 6.0.8.08 beta: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=48182

Thanks so much, Kerry56. That’s working smoothly right now on decrypting with this version. :slight_smile:

I had the same deal, True Grit DVD would not play on pc, but played fine on DVD player. I updated to the new BETA AnyDvd, 6808, then it played fine on pc. And allowed for backup using Clone-DVD, no problems or search for correct title. I put ti on a Verbatim 4.7 +R, may try a -R, or even a DL DVD, see what works best for me.

I had same issues and the beta posted above resolved my problems with True Grit! Thanks for the tip!

I’m having eactly the same challenge with the same True Grit DVD. How does one get hold of the Beta that solves this problem?
