    One last thing.


    Your drivers are WHQL certified right?

    this doesn't mean that i think DRM is right, but with DRM as a given, what we see is quite understandable.

    and yep, i would just say "use anydvd" and be happy. I do the same..

    and next year, or so, I'll travel to their island. can't wait. it's a funny island, just check it on google maps all the names of the villages and beaches, too much geekness down there




    sooo.. have to continue reading the rest of the thread

    btw, i even use anydvd while all my stuff is fully compliant. and here around, pcs get even sold with it preinstalled.

    why? just in case. as stated before, i have one blueray movie which just doesn't work without anydvd, while all others play well. (james bond casino royale crapedibabedy).

    i have it just to toggle on and off, depending on what doesn't work..

    to avoid DRM I just buy the DVD/and or Blu ray. and then download the digital version... no DRM. problem solved.

    or just use anydvd. just as 'legal' and thus not really to discussion in here, except for stuff like the actual troubleshoot.

    I know that's way I didn't discuss the 'how-to'. by the way from my experience anyDVD doesn't work all the time either. I have it installed on my HTPC and there are still select DVD's that won't play. I'm still waiting for a Canadian website to offer Digital media DRM free at a decent price here.

    Yep. My drivers are WHQL. I'm using the same drivers that the other A1 model that comes with Blu-Ray use.

    At this point, I'm near positive it has to do with my Blu-Ray drive not being compliant. Waiting on a response from Ken Lee at GenTechPC to see if they have any drives in stock.

    Couple of things of note...

    1 - how is the drive identified in device manager? Can you get a valid hardware id off of it?

    2 - you might want to head over to ClubCD freaks forums. Not to disrespect anyone here, but there may be some knowledge, tools, or software available there that we just haven't crossed yet.

    I know that I had an old HP burner once, that was manufactured by Sony, and with a little toolage here, and a firmware flash there, I made my HP back into a Sony. Could be that a firmware update (if the original hardware can be identified, and is compatible) would bring it back into spec to watch regular region 1 BDs without having to fudge the decryption.

    These come directly from the Device Manager "Details" tab for the drive.

    Interesting info when searching on the error you were getting:

    AVCREC

    "AVCREC is an official lower capacity variant of the Blu-ray Disc used for storing Blu-ray Disc compatible content on conventional DVD discs. This variant is being promoted for use in camcorders, distribution of short HD broadcast content and other cost-sensitive distribution needs. "
