Arccos

Ok well it looks like Sony/Columbia Pictures will be using this from now on. What Ive noticed is that for the most part Anydvd or DVDDecrypter can rip most of the problems associated with Arccos Protection. But since with each new week of releases a new version of Arccos is set out.

Im gonna post how Ive been able to get by it whenever there is no update of Anydvd or DVDDecrypter avaliable yet.

First I check to see if its gonna work with CloneDVD2 to begin with.

If it doesnt work right off then I know Im gonna have to rip the darn movie to the hdd first. Ill start out with Anydvd because you can rip on the fly. I leave Anydvd on in the background then open up VobBlanker. I direct VobBlanker to the disc in my dvd reader. Next I select where the output will go and then just press "PROCESS". Let it run untill you have all the files (hopefully fixed) on your hdd. Now just open up CloneDVD2 and see if it looks like a normal movie again. If so then rip as normal and burn.


Ok now if VobBlanker doesnt work right off the bat for you with your drive or if it just freezes (this happens to certain people/readers). Then try this:



This will take up twice as much space. But with AnyDVD copy and paste the entire VIDEO_TS folder somewhere on your hdd. You can also use DVDDecrypter to do the same thing (remember to disable AnyDVD when using DVDDecrypter because of conflicts between the 2 programs). If one program doesnt work try the other. Then just direct VobBlanker to your files on the HDD and also select where it will put the processed files when its done. After its all done then you can delete the first set of files thus freeing up quite a bit of space. Now just use your favorite resizing program (CloneDVD2 or DVDShrink, etc).






In summary, for the most part AnyDVD and DVDDecrypter will get rid of about half of the protection while VobBlanker gets rid of the rest. You can try to get VobBlanker to do everything but Im not positive it will.

Good Luck and hopefully this little tutorial doesnt get outdated next week.










Tyler!

Would be good if a list could be started with all the movies this applies to.

In any case, its mainly a problem with Sony or Columbia Pictures dvd movies. So basically any movie made by them will more than likely have this Arccos protection.

DVD Decrypter 3.5.4.0 or later will effortlessly and efficiently rip any movie, including the ones with ARccOS copyright protection.

Well Duh. But I made this post when it was first out. And in the case of other new versions of Arccos this may still be of help.

Smile arccos protection

I am trying to understand DVD protection, and ways to back-up my movies. I have used DVD43 and Roxio Media Center 7 with great results until I ran into Macrovision. I have DVD Decrypter which did a fine job of extracting the VOB files to my hard drive. I was following your instructions in this thread as best I could. So, I used VobBlanker and did another extraction from the disk, but got the following error message at the end of the operation -= "error reading input VOB - unsynchronized ". I have saved the VobBlanker log if seeing it would help.

I changed the extension of the VOB output to MPG just to see if the movie was present, and what I have is a movie with really messed up sound. As you can tell, I havent a clue what I'm doing hehe, but I'm willing to learn. Also, I cant see the output from decrypter from any programs i have.

I need help.

Thanks,

Mike Boe

Pretty much all you need as of now, is the latest Anydvd or DVDDecrypter and CloneDVD2.

arccos protection

A big Thank You Tyler !!! Although I'm still pretty clueless about the capabilities of this software, and how to use the options, I was able to successfully back-up Resident Evil.

DVD Decrypter, as well as VobBlanker, are awesome. My hats off to the people who can develop such software. My new project is to learn about DVD recording, encoding, decoding and protection. I believe this will keep me busy a while.

Thanks,

Mike

For me DVDShrink 3.2 and DVD43 is the only real working solution. DVD Decryptor was a little confused with german (rc2) version of Slipstream (english description is here). Ok, I have not tried DVD43 with Slipstream but with XXX - The next Level and DVD Shrink had no problem without the use of AnyDVD or any other tool.
