Blindwrite tweaker

Hi - so how do i use the tweaker? I have downloaded it but BW still says the DVD is copy protected and prohibited. What am I doing wrong…?:confused:

you try to rip a dvd movie??? :eek:
for such puropse u should use things like clonedvd in combination with anydvd…
and not blindwrite … and not the tweaker… :wink:

Well, you could try the “Turn Decrypt On” setting in BW5Tweaker

I’ve tried that with a couple of DVDs - BW5Tweaker 155 no longer seems to work with BW5 5.1.1.128

genjai - the decryptor was turned on…

@4wd
Did that option work for you?
And the last tweaker is having some problems (R!Co know this and I’m sure he will fix this when he has the time)

@madsang
What DVD are you trying to copy?
What version of BW5 and BW5Tweaker have you tried with?

Try with this profile and see if you get it to work?

[BW5]
profilename=DVD Decrypt
profiledesc=Decrypts DVDs
decrypt=1
writetopology=-1
topologyspeed=0
topologyread=-1
weaksector=0
autoplay=1
subfordata=-1
subforaudio=-1
maxreadspeed=0
cdwritespeed=0
dvdwritespeed=0
onreaderror=-1

No, it still says ‘Copy prohibited’ and won’t let me do anything.

You can also try to use dvd43 (it uses patin-couffin which you probably already have :wink: )
DVD43 removes the css protection on-the fly which will allow BW5 to copy it
download it here
install it, run it, then use BW5 to copy the DVD

There’s an idea, thanks :slight_smile:

I was hoping to avoid other software like AnyDVD, etc, but this sounds OK.

Well I downloaded & installed it, it went through all it’s tricks when a DVD was inserted but BW5 still shows ‘Copy prohibited’.

I’ve checked that the patin-couffin driver is installed and working.

I’m starting to think it might be a problem with BW5 and/or driver rather than BW5Tweaker.

Is the DVD from the another region?

The DVD is a region 4, (Australia), single sided DVD5. The drive is a LiteOn JLMS-166S with RPC1 firmware.

Of course this is all acedemic now as my DVD writer, (LG GSA-4040B), has just bit the dust :frowning:

To test if DVD43 is working, you can use dvd-decrypter to copy the files from the dvd to your hard-drive and watch if dvd-decrypter uses any keys when it copies

Is the DVD43 systray a green smile?
Sorry about your drive

Yes. I’ve uninstalled it now so will have to get back to you.

Sorry about your drive

A trifle annoying - it’s still under warranty but of course I bought it in the USA when I was there and LG Australia couldn’t give a toss, (I’ll send it back to my mate in the USA).

So much for ‘Globalisation’ - what a crock… :frowning:

OK, reinstalled DVD43 and tried it with DVD Shrink 3.1.6.0 - which reports that the DVD is not encrypted.

If I close DVD43 then DVD Shrink displays an encryption key.

So this kind of proves that DVD43 and the patin-couffin driver (1.9) is working correctly.

The problem must lie with BW5 since it says the DVD is still ‘Copy prohibited’ even with DVD43 running.
