Closer Hautnah does not work



I tried to copy closer (hautnah) german version with clonedvd
and anydvd
It doesn’t work
protection: Sony Arcoos


You mean the DVD to be released July 5th, 2005? :wink:


yes rent version


:eek: LOL


i know why you have 548 posts, because you post unnecessary coments.
good post Bjproc


Please try this beta version. Let me know, if it fixes your problems:, 2005 06 10

  • New: Added support for a new version of the “Sony ARccOS
    protection” as found on “Closer” R2 (UK, German, Italian)
    to the option to remove “Protection based on unreadable
    Sectors” (it should really work now).
  • Fix: If AnyDVD was disabled, the “no drive” dialog could
    be displayed.
  • Fix: If AnyDVD was first disabled and then enabled within
    the settings dialog, disc changes were no longer correctly
  • Fix: Bug which could prevent correct backup of early Arccos
    protected titles, e.g. Wrestlemania 3 (UK)
  • Some minor fixes and improvements


oh thanks for this update
i will test it today
tommorow you get the reply ( I must go to bed)
best support i have ever seen


closer (german version) works with anydvd
thank you


Working in a video store I bought the german rental version of closer, and tried to backup it with the latest AnyDVD Version, but it isn’t working…

  • DVDShrink locks up at 18% of first analysis
  • DVDDecrypter shows lots of read errors in VTS_01_1.vob

W 17:47:02 Failed to read Sector 328241 - No Seek Complete
W 17:47:05 Failed to read Sector 328242 - No Seek Complete
W 17:47:07 Failed to read Sector 328243 - No Seek Complete

AnyDVD runs with the following information:

Media is a Data DVD.
Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite)

Video DVD (or CD) label: DVD_VIDEO
Media is CSS protected!
Video Standard: PAL
Media is locked to region(s): 2!

RCE protection not found.
Found & removed wrong DVD structure!
Structural copy protection not found.
Autorun not found on Video DVD.
Found & removed 1 bad sector protections!
Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 2!
I tried it on 2 different drives… Any idea what could be wrong?



Either you use the wrong AnyDVD version (check it in settings dialog), or you have played with AnyDVD settings. Click “Default”.
If DVD Decrtypter shows “Pack header not found” messages - ignore it. This is normal. You should try CloneDVD instead of Shrink as well.

  • You can be sure i know what version i’m using :wink:

  • I use the latest version ( and did a reboot after install…

  • Putting the settings back to “Default” did not help in any way. :sad:

  • Decrypter shows “Failed to read Sector xxxxxx - No Seek Complete” Errors, i posted it before…

Anyhow, DVDShrink or DVDDecrypter should work, i’m not willing to buy a program i dont need :wink: And i believe if two programs have read errors, CloneDVD would not be the solution…
Seems to me AnyDVD still does not recognize all error-sections of this Sony ArccOS protected DVD, but since i have the original DVD it’s not that urgent, only annoying :smiley:

Thanks for the help anyway… :slight_smile:


Since editing my previous post does not work anymore:
I just read here (german) that i’m not the only one with this problem… Lucky me… :smiley:

One of the admins seems to have the same problem with the “Closer/Hautnah” DVD (RC2/German), so hopefully Slysoft will work on this problem with the Sony ArccOS protection.


Strange… in this thread, user slipknot666 reported, that AnyDVD did work with “Closer” (German), and I doubt, that there are two different versions of the same movie…???
I suggest you send .ifo files to support(at) and bugs(at)


Yes, i noticed that, and i was hoping he would return to this thread and tell me howe he did it, if so… :smiley:

I think i’ll try that, thanks for the addresses…



I can confirm Kaliostro’s problem with the latest AnyDVD version

I cannot backup Hautnah either, same symptoms here.

Though it works with DVD Region + CSS Free (shame on AnyDVD)


I manged to back it up using the following .psl list and DVDDecrypter in File mode (AnyDVD still running):

Simply save it as closer.psl or whatever, and import it into DVDDecrypter.

With AnyDVD alone i still have found no solution, the “Hautnah”-DVD is not recognized as protected disc.

RCE protection not found.
Found & removed wrong DVD structure!
Structural copy protection not found.
Autorun not found on Video DVD.
Found & removed 1 bad sector protections!
Lets hope Slysoft is working on this fast… :wink:



It will stay like this forever unless you send IFO files to support(at) and bugs(at)


Did you send IFOs?


Olli, IFOs are on their way…


Sure… 2 days ago… :wink:
