I’ve just got Mission Impossible 3 as a birthday gift. When I try to insert it into my DVD player on my computer, I cant see the movie. It seems like the DVD is emty. I tried to play the movie in PowerDVD, but it couldnt. Is it a new copy protection or what? On my ordinary DVD player tor my TV it works fine…
Does the region code of the disc match the region code of your computer?
I think this needs to be moved to a different forum. The title is “How to Copy” and it is in the copy forum but the issue seems to be “Can’t play”
Sorry for the wrong forum. Well, Yes the region code match.
You could try to install the demo version of AnyDVD and check if that helps.
Sounds like the new protection called ‘Protect DVD-Video’ from the company ProtectDisc. It attempts to stop a DVD from being played on a Windows PC.
I doubt that it has Protect DVD as protection. I have the swedish version and that is the same as the danish, norwegian and finnish release. My copy only contained Sony ARccOS protection.
Nothing definitive in what I said. For that matter nothing definitive in what you said either.
The point is really moot as the article indicates… “SlySoft have a product called AnyDVD which works in the background to automatically remove the copy protection of a DVD movie as soon as it’s inserted into the drive. The other day they released an updated version of[U] AnyDVD[/U] which [U]effortlessly bypasses Protect DVD-Video”.[/U]
So far Protect DVD has only been released in Germany on the movie Silent Hill. The DVD was released by the German distributor Concorde Video.
Ages ago there was a DVD released in Italy by Eagle Pictures with the title ‘The Keeper’. That could have been the first DVD with this protection system. However it did not contain unreadable sectors - only corrupt ifo/bup files.
This is my swedish version of the MI III. To me it looks as it is the same DVD released in the other scandinavian countries.
Not sure what the AnyDVD commercial has to do with it. The freeware applications DVDFab Decrytper and ripit4me could deal with the Protect DVD protection weeks before the AnyDVD release.

As I was merely quoting the article I won’t respond further to your gauche comment.

That is an overt misstatement of fact that you could not possibly know.
There is no way for you to definitively know in what countries of the world Protect DVD-Video is being distributed and on what movies Protect DVD-Video is being used unless you are a mind reader or privy to information from the company ProtectDisc.
From the OP:
It seems like the DVD is emty.
From your link:
which results in the IFO file on the DVD (this is the file responsible for storing information on chapters, subtitles and audio tracks) appearing to the PC as being zero bytes long.
So based on this: you will still see the files in Windows.
That does not sound as the Protect DVD protection.
my last dvd burner did this quit frequently, would not recognize certain disks.
only way i could fix was to get a new burner, try on another computer if possible
