I purchased a Samsung HT-q70 about 2 months ago. It works great, sounds great, love it. Some time ago I decided to back up my complete dvd collection to ensure that the little ones would not destory the original shiney play toys that they find under the TV in the really cool plastic cases that we can make forts in!!!
The issues that I just recently discovered are that the Samsung will not play any disc copied using AnyDvd. The screen flashed “Play prohibited. Please check disc.”
Thinking that it was because AnyDvd was removing the regional coding, I turned it off, so that AnyDVD would not remove the regional coding. Still no go. Opening a recent copy in IFOedit shows that it is only coded for region 1.
This occurs with all Fuji (I only use Fuji) dvd+r and dvd+dl made with the assistance of AnyDVD and DvdDecrypter to make an ISO of the disc.
Other discs that I did not make a full dvd-to-dvd copy (cartoons, etc), and filtered down via Nero work just fine.
This means that every dvd-dl/r disc I have copied will not play, around 80 or so backups.
What is the Samsung player seeing to prevent playing from the complete ISO copy, that is removed with Nero Recode?
What would be the properway to make a full dvd-to-dvd copy without using anydvd/dvddecrypter to remove whatever is stopping playback?
Edit: Just checked the disc I thought that AnyDvd did not removed regional coding, and found it coded for all regions. I wonder if this is an causing it?
Edit 2: Nope. Just checked another disc that plays just fine in Dvddrcrypter, and it has all region coding removed also. This disc works without any issues on the Samsung.
