Since I’m going to be in a 2500 mile trip (from northern California to south Mexico) I bought about 20 DVDs, to play on the road and to give them to my family when I get to my hometown, but I forgot the USA is region 1 and Mexico is region 4 I decided to back up my originals and remove the region protection, anyway… Herbie Fully loaded does not even play in my computer, the drive does not recognize the DVD and I get the following message fron Anydvd:

Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 1!
I used slysoft’s cloneCD to make a fully DVDimage, At first it gave the following message:
CloneCD can’t get exclusive acces to Drive F:/
So I clicked on “ignore” and made a full dvd image, after that I uploaded the image in to the virtual clone drive and used elby’s cloneDVD2 to make and ISO Image, burned it and now I have a fully working Back up!
I hope this tip can help.
P. S. I Use nothing else than Elbys and slysoft, cause there the best!
