Bo Ying discs: anydvd cannot remove region restrictions

For some reason, Bo Ying discs (a little-known chinese dvd company that releases very well known classic films unavailable in region 1) can be backed up by anydvd/clonedvd combo, but the backed up copies remain region coded, even though the “information” window for anydvd shows the copies as being region free. Playing these discs on region 1 players is impossible. These are the discs I tried:

Bo Ying “Ivan’s Childhood” (Tarkovsky) region coded to 6

Bo Ying “Miracolo a Milano” (De Sica) region coded to 6

I’m using Anydvd 5.2.7.2, but this error has also happened with every version of anydvd prior to 5.2.7.2…any ideas?

try using hte latest version of AnyDVD which is 5.4.1.1

Are you actually receiving a message that says it’s the wrong region?

Is this issue a because of NTSC/PAL?

Pakratus:

That’s what’s weird about it. The backed up copy, when scanned by Anydvd, says it’s region free (not region coded). When the disc is played on a desktop player, the “wrong region” message is displayed…I will try the latest version of Anydvd, but I bet you it will not work. Will report later.
