AnyDVD works in the background to automatically and transparently enable read access of the contents of a movie DVD as soon as it's inserted into the drive. The DVD will become useable to your windows operating system and all programs on your computer, such as DVD-Backup-software like CloneDVD, Pinnacle InstantCopy, Intervideo DVDCopy and others, then supporting any DVD. AnyDVD optionally disables the RPC region codes, thereby making the movie region free and comfortably viewable on any DVD player and with any DVD player software.

AnyDVD is capable of disabling unwanted movie features such as forced subtitles, forced delays, and no-skip marks, giving you full control over your movie experience. It also allows you to launch an external application whenever you insert or remove a disc, and prevents unwanted software like 'PC-friendly' from automatically launching when you insert a video DVD.

    Anydvd and clonedvd are the 2 program to use period.
    But......., they are all fashion right now 1.they are to expensive 2. Now they are good program the do the same 3. If you want a movie for your collection just downloaded from the internet 720 or 1080 get a good burning tool , Nero, Roxio or 123 copy Right now movie store that rent movies are gone or will be gone., and then why do you need this.

    Hands down works better than anything else I've tried.

    Frequent updates. I've had very few issues. and they've been fixed in updates or a setting change.

    It's so nice not being forced to sit through trailers warnings and other crap that you can't skip or FF through. I've also gotten a few problem discs to play that for some reason wouldn't w/o using AnyDVD. Though that may have just been a fluke.

    I had a few retail discs with Cinavia that TMT would flag as pirated, AnyDVD fixed that irritating little problem.

    I'm a bit tight with my money, but I sprang for a lifetime license.

    Hey Outlier...the software you'll want is Handbrake:


    Use x264 as video codec, with the mp4 file extension with large file size (I prefer mkv because you can add chapters etc). I Use constant quality at RF 16 for HD rips (may be overkill, lower is better, many people recommend 22 or 20 for HD. I use RF20 for DVD rips). Use high profile, Film preset, I use the slower setting.
    On the picture tab, Anamorphic=Loose, Modulus=16, Cropping=automatic. For audio use passthru if it's an AC3 file, otherwise you're compressing a compressed file. If it's DTS I like to compress with Nero AAC in Foobar2000 and remux the audio with MKVMerge, because the AAC options in Handbrake for Windows aren't good quality but they don't allow Nero's AAC encoder because of licensing issues.
    People on the internet will argue all day about the settings I've just given, but it should be a good starting place since all the options can be bewildering for novices. Also you should definitely try MakeMKV as an alternative to AnyDVD HD for ripping blurays to the drive.

    What problem are you having? I have a system with both a BLuRay burner and a Samsung Lightscribe enabled drive and have ran into no problems thus far. I did notice there is a new LS software, ver 1.18 out that I've downloaded but haven't tried yet but so far I haven't ran into any problems with 1.17.9
