New strange arccoss protection

Okay I have got the movie Hollow Man 2 R2. Ihave anydvd 6051 and clonedvd 2901. When I look at the anydvd info window it shows me that the dvd has got alpha dvd protection although the dvd is a red sony disc.
Whats going on? I think a new arccoss version, because it is a new release.
EDIT: Yes defintly. When I try to load it with clonedvd, a window appears (repairing wrong dvd structure; new feature come with 2901 i guess) and then after a few minutes clonedvd fails.

Copy and paste the info window here please. I am curious!

I would turn off anydvd copy the IFO files and zip them to one and send it to slysoftsupport. Then use ripit4me if you can’t wait on an update. I’m also assuming your region 2 is in Greece?

No Germany. Will try and send the mail. What was the address again?

Here is a detailed way for you.

This will tell you how, and thank reasonsnotrules for a detail way on this too.

The link is fixed now. Sorry.

Link doesn’t work. To come back that you assumed I am from greece. European dvd protections differ sometimes from the US (like Hitch) and sometimes there are some dvds which are protected in the USA and Europe not.

Sorry links fixed now.

Mail sent. Ripit4me seems to work. It appears to be a big load of protection.

Great glad to of helped.

Successful completed with ri4me. Thanks doc :bow: . You did a great job. :clap: I am glad to be one of tose glorious ones who have found a new arccoss protection (probably) . That doesn’t happen everyday. I keep you up with infos.

Slysoft says that they are already working on an update.

Thanks for the update.

I think AD will also have to develop into sometype of adaptive protection analysing\breaking program as well
to decrease the number of devloper required updates when a slightly dfferent protection scheme is encountered

Who knows? Slysoft is unpredictable.

I thought they have something like that? I swear I remember seeing a news post on their page back before I even bought it, which said it detects and removes a new form of protection without even needed to be updated!

Iformation window seems to show the right infos now:

I’ll post back later when I’ve burnt it.

Yes it works.
just opened the movie just for fun with dvd shrink. I have to disappoint people who want to copy it with shrink and anydvd, it gets an “invalid navigation error”.
But I don’t care :wink:

Could you try running it through FixVTS and then load it up into DVD Shrink?

I think it should work then.
