When it comes to cracking DVD copy protection schemes, Slysoft is one of the best out there. AnyDVD is actually a Windows driver which allows decryption of copy protected DVDs in real time. This also makes the DVDs region free, allowing them to be played on devices in all parts of the world rather than being limited to the targeted region. AnyDVD HD is a version of AnyDVD which can decrypt Blu-Ray discs along with normal DVDs. AndDVD is capable of removing Macrovision (Analog), Sony ARccOS, RipGuard, BD+ (on Blu-Ray) and other encryption schemes as of version 6.4 of the software. You can combine AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD with other software such as CloneDVD, Nero Recode, DVD Shrink and other DVD ripper appz out there to make backup copies or rip copy protected DVDs, Audio CDs and Blu-Ray discs.
Version 184.108.40.206 features several new features such as added support for new protection schemes, ability to disabled BD-Live and removal of region locks from menus.
