thanks to the “slysoft team” I am watching my backup of “the forgotten” thanks guys for the kickass program anydvd beta . copied using clonedvd2 v2.5.4.3

I needed to get this version in order to copy “The Village”. It wouldn’t work without it. (U.S. Version)


can someone post a new link to that link is down.

Has anyone got the installation files (who wouldnt mind sending a copy via e-mail) for any dvd beta because has glitches


Does AnyDVD allow you to, in conjuction w/ CloneDVD, SKIP the transfer to Hard Drive step when backing up a movie?

I use dvdDecrypter and CloneDVD2. It takes Decrypter 5-10 minutes. Then Clone about 20 minutes.
Would/can it be faster to use AnyDVD?

@Ice cold:
You can download AnyDVD v beta form my upload link (81 Bytes)

Yes. AnyDVD would save you the 5-10 minutes DVD Decrypter requires (which quite fast, most DVD-ROM drives take longer), and the required harddisk space (5-8GB).

Thanks for the replies guys. I definately know not to create a new thread for this. I did search for 30 minutes, but got lazy.

BTW, the drives I have:

Writer: NEC 3500-AG
ROM: Aopen 1648/AAP (fastest rip: 4:30! longest: 11:30)
