There are more errors in all IFO files and try to wash VOB or fix crashing all programs. Ifoedit, vob blanker, vtsfix etc… any idea?

@ maxita,

Welcome to the Forum.

Sounds like this particular Commercial DVD Title was defectively manufactured.

By law in all countries if at Commercial DVD Movie Titles has the DVD logo on the disk it is required to play on any DVD device that has the DVD logo on the device.

Suggest returning the Commercial DVD Movie Title and demand a free replacement or a total refund.

Best Regards,

Sorry if I have misunderstood or offended you.

try to use nero burning rom or alchool 120% with anydvd active or manually copy video_ts folder and then burn it with nero…

I assume you are the one, who has sent the IFO files to our support people. Thank you very much! I have to admit, this DVD is most interesting and seems to have a quite creative new form of copy protection.
I suspect it to be a brand new protection, maybe from the ProtectDisc people:
http://www.protectdisc.com/With_FL/HTML/dvdvideo_publisher.html
Unfortunately I cannot analyse how the protection works looking only on the .ifo files. I need to have at least one original disc having this protection.
If anybody knows of a similar disc, please let me or our support people know.
I am looking for a DVD which can be bought, not a rental DVD, preferably from France, UK, Germany, Japan or US/Canada.
Thanks again!

You can save your time, this will not work.

It very well may be, but even they claim their protection works on a PC with the appropriate software and a DVD drive.

According to their web site, the system requirements are:

“Any stand alone DVD Player or PC with software player and DVD-ROM compatible drive.”

As always James, thanks for your diligence in this continueing struggle!

maybe you are surely right…i’ve only reported an information founded on another forum

:slight_smile:

According to an user of an italian forum, this film can be done with alchol 120% or with dvd decrypter + 1clickdvd copy

I didn’t think alcohol would touch any DVD with protection on it - doesn’t it need something like AnyDVD?

i don’t know…i just cut and paste the information

where can I find this DVD? do you have a website where I can order the disc? Where are you. Europe?

thanks

i’m from Italy

This is the R1 US NTSC DVD, not the R2 Italian PAL DVD mentioned by forum member maxita: http://www.eaglepictures.com/EP/he_schedatitolo.asp?key=670
We are desperatly seeking a sample of the Italian “The Keeper” DVD or another DVD with the same type of copy protection.

Slysoft,

Just so you know, you wont be able to get your hands on this disc for awhile. I too, have looked. The DVD rental release date was 12/14/2005, however you cannot purchase this disc until a month or two after. So, I suppose if you traveled to Italy you could just rent it and never return ;o)

What about sending a “non-Working” backup of the movie to Slysoft made with Alcohol 120% so that they can at least examine how it works for now…Is that Legal or not?
