AnyDVD from SlySoft is a popular tool to decrypt and remove write protection on DVDs. It works automatically in the background and gets activated when a DVD is inserted and removes the write protection automatically. The problem with AnyDVD is that it is not free. Many people including me don’t want to pay extra bits for paid softwares and look for free alternatives. I have found two great alternatives to AnyDVD to decrypt and remove protection on the DVDs. Let’s get a quick overview of both of them.
DVD43 is a free DVD decrypting software which runs in the background and decrypts DVD on the fly when they are inserted into the system. It’s very easy to install and run. After installing DVD43, insert a write protected DVD and wait for DVD43 to detect the DVD. When it’s icon becomes green smiley it mean that the DVD has been detected and you can copy the DVD with your favorite DVD copy program.
DVDFab HD Decrypter copies the entire DVD to the hard drive and removes all the protections applied on the DVD including CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS. It can also be used for a Blu-ray Disc and removes protection of DVD Blue-ray disc including AACS, BD+, RC, UOPS and BD-Live.
