Sadly it doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit systems. This is unfortunate for the author as more and more machines will go 64 bit in the future. Rumour has it the author is not interested in upgrading it to work on 64 bit systems. Hope these rumours are wrong as it is an excellent tool. Especially in Australia where 25% of the population was born overseas and consequently DVD's from various motherlands abound. Most DVD players and TV's (in Australia) are multisystem so why not DVDROMS?

Just wanted to thank previous contributors. All I wanted to do was to view DVD's from Region 1 on my (UK) laptop. I visited a number of frightening techie sites and was thinking about just buying the european versions of the DVD's instead, but your reassuring comments and detailed stuff about why some people had experienced problems gave me the conficdence to do it.

Specifically, I saw no feedback on the use of this tool with Windows 7, since it's only been out a few weeks. I tried it and it worked first time. Many thanks. (For those wanting a bit more detail, it's a Dell laptop with a Hitachi HL-DT-STDVD +- RW GSA-S10N DVD drive. Operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate. My DVD's played with the Dell Media Player. (I didn't try any others.)

Update to my previous comment. It seems the problem is with an Avast update which has since been corrected. see this thread

To the previous poster. I'm running Avast 4.8 home edition on a PC with XP sp3 and just reinstalled DVD43 v4.6.0 downloaded from the direct link above and there was no warning message from Avast's resident shield. I ran a direct check against the install folder and still no warnings of any kind. If you got DVD43 from another source then it's best to delete it and download it from here.

To the previous comment: I just ran the latest version through Norton Anti-virus and it reported back that it's not infected. Don't trust Avast.

It was working fine. But when I installed Avast antivirus, it says that there is Trojan in the program. I tried all versions.

works great.

WinDVD platinum 7 kept asking me to change regions for the DVD player when i pressed play, even when the disc was region 1 and the player said it was set to region 1. It just asked over and over.

I installed DVD43 and the problem disappeared.

Great program - v3.9.0.0

Hmmm... Followed the detailed description from The_Captain17:
No luck. Al my players (InterVideo WinDVD, WinMediaplayer, RealPlayer, etc.) kept asking for change of region. Even though I got the green smiley in my sys.bay. Good idea -- even though the driver-util and the sw itself should be packed together -- and it doesn't work on my 'puter.

I installed the new version. Not much in the way of changes. Works great. I would suggest not having another decrypter program running while this is on. There really is no need to, but I've heard (and from comments below seen) people have had them running together. Many decrypter programs tend to conflict each other when simultaneously running. Not sure why, but they just do. If you want to use DVD Decrypter to burn the disc, shut down DVD43 first.

DVD43 runs in the background and On-The-Fly. I've found that using DVD Shrink to Rip the disc works well. I typically use DVD Decrypter to burn discs, but found Nero and several other softwares work just as well.

Also, for the sake of nice clean burns, I always suggest shutting down any and all programs when you run your burn software (including disable your screensaver and adjust your power settings to be always on). Some burn softwares and DVD burners are sensitive to these other tasks running and will give you some pretty botched jobs. My advice is just let then burn happen and come back when its done.

I was always one of the biggest supporters of DVD43 but I kept hearing that he wasn't going to have time to update it again so I finally switched to ANYDVD....I have to admit I still like DVD43, but until I find out whether he is going to update more I am stuck with AnyDVD.

Works perfectly for me with 1 tiny exception.
On certain DVDs (Mostly WB) If I use DVD Decrypter I need to turn off either DVD43 or change the settings in DVD Decrypter to no remove the copy protection. I think both programs are attempting to crack the encryption at the same time. Causes my system to freeze and reboot. This problem does not happen if I only let one of either program handle the CSS cracking.

I wanted to back up a few Region 3 discs [my drive is Region 1], but didn't want to change the region of my drive and didn't want to risk flashing the firmware. DVD Region Killer didn't work for me [perhaps because my drive isn't region free, but not sure], and this program did the job perfectly. I just popped in the DVD, watched the little smiley do his thing, and ran it through DVD Shrink. Bam! Successful Region 3 --> All Region backup, without the risk a messing with BIOS [I have no idea what I'm doing in DOS.]

DVD43 has worked well in the past for me, however with this version and the latest Nero upgrade, whenever I try to access a CD or DVD, I get a memory dump and a system crash. When I remove DVD43, Nero operates properly. DVD seems to work well with all other programs I have.

This little software is neat, but it works only half of the time for me. I tested it with a dozen legit original DVDs, all from the same video series from the same publisher, all region 3 discs, but this program somehow couldn't even detect the existence of half of those discs. For the discs that were detected, it worked perfectly. Anyway given it is a freeware it doesn't hurt to try for yourself.

BEWARE: There is another version of DVD43 in circulation (ver 2) that is NOT FREE and expires after 30 days - it stops working and points you to a website to buy a third party product. If you have Version 2, uninstall it and install DVD43 1.4 using one of the links at http://dvd43.com/

This is a beautiful software. Must have Patin Coufin Access Layer or it doesn't work properly. It also has to be running to work. Some people do not think it's working as it is a background running program. You'll only get a little window that shows how many drives you have and how many discs its removing the CSS protection from. If you don't see the little smiley in the icon tray, it's not on or working. Seems to work best with 321 Studios products @ www.321studios.com like DVD-X-Copy and DVD-X-TREME.

Really happy I downloaded. I understand the comments on some who
said dvd "froze". I did have this prob at first...but here's
some reflection on my exp with POWER DVD:

Install the hatin-putin driver thing, as directed, and
restart.
Then, Install DVD43. Restart.
Then put a dvd in your drive. If power DVD starts up
close it. If it starts and "jams"...close it, using the
task manager if u have to. I suggest starting with a dvd
from your "original region" 1st. With DVD43 active (smiley
in lower-right), place DVD in drive. U should see it turn from
a yellow "neutral expression" face to a green smiley. If it
turns into a "devil face", your DVD program is still on, trying
to block your dvd or detect the region. Close your dvd program
(i recomend starting your DVD program, mine is Pow DVD, in
a window mode, NOT FULL SCREEN, so you can see the DVD43
smiley indicator. If the smiley is a GREEN HAPPY FACE at
this point, go ahead and start your DVD program, it should be
fine. If you are going to put in another DVD from a diff
region, again, TURN OFF (close) your DVD program first.
The smiley will go yellow again, and then do same proceeedure,
put in disk, wait for smiley to go green, then start your
DVD program. This small hassle (turning off/closing your dvd
player to switch regions) is WELL WORTH IT. You can't beat
the price. I am an American living in Czech republic, and
brought several DVDs with me from the states, while buying
some here also. My dvd player will TECHNICALLY let me switch
regions only 5 times, so this program has saved my butt. I
used several new Region 1 (usa) DVDs such as HBOs "Sopranos"
and bought some brand new (also HBO productions)
"Band of Brothers" DVDs...which in theory should have the
same kind of dycriptions on them...and they all worked
perfectly. In a nutshell, you may have to tinker a bit at
first, but thats it. Just don't try to switch regions while
your player is actually active, if you switch regions be sure
to turn off your player first.

I hope this helps anyone who uses this software.
This is great stuff and I was worried about trying
to use "firmware" on my drive, this is a super
solution for free.

Thanks.

It works for Windows 2000/XP and NOT just (XP only) as it says in the description. It'll never work with win98 that's all. Patin-Couffin driver is free so this is a 100% freeware solution for on-the-fly decryption. Works with Nero Recode2 and DVD2ONE in my testing. Didn't work, however, with Elby CloneDVD.
