Anyone else had any issues playing this DVD on their PC DVD Drive ?

Works fine on my 360 but my LiteOn LH18A1H is having none of it. The Special Features disk is fine it's just the film DVD.

It says on the back of the case it has "Copy Protection" but I dont want to copy it just be able to watch it on my new Dell 24" screen

Doesnt even work when AnyDVD is running :confused:

It may, on some drives. I've seen Arccos protected disks that won't play on some set-top DVD players that have been made multi-region.

You may need to rip the disk using ripit4me before being able to play it (rather stupid really given that the whole point of Arccos is to prevent you from ripping the disk, not from watching it).

thanks for the replies. Am running AnyDVD 6.1.3.3 so up to date.

I cant even get the drive to recognise the disk, but the drive is fine with all other DVDs just this one. Odd.

That is odd - Im running AnyDVD 6.1.0.7 and it ran\backuped fine.

If it doesnt work with AnyDVD disabled then it sounds like you are correct - the LG is the problem.

Just remembered both myself and my colleague had a problem with this disc. We had to use AnyDVD to rip it to the HD to make it work.

Update here
http://slashdot.org/articles/07/04/15/1914248.shtml
"It seems that the most recent DVDs released by Sony — specifically Stranger Than Fiction, Casino Royale, and The Pursuit of Happyness — have some kind of 'feature' that makes them unplayable on many DVD players. This doesn't appear to be covered by the major media yet, but this link to a discussion over at Amazon gives a flavor of the problems people are experiencing. A blogger called Sony and was told the problem is with the new copy protection scheme, and they do not intend to fix it. Sony says it's up to the manufacturers to update their hardware."
