Windows 7: Can't play a blu-ray region B title anymore.

04 Jan 2014   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Can't play a blu-ray region B title anymore.

Hi guys,

I own this title on blu-ray:

It's a region B title im in America.

I've always been able to play it on my PC with my Pioner bluray drive (region free, no region set) using anydvd
I played the title before 2014 with 0 issues.

1 day ago i had to perform a windows 7 64 bits clean install and suddenly the title won't play anymore using WinDVD Pro 11 11.6. The software state: disc can't be played because its a region B title or something like that.

i've been thinking and thinking what could be wrong but i can only guess.

Maybe anydvd block all their releases with the new year except the latest one

or maybe is a windvd issue related?

or a new windows 7 update?

Pretty pretty weird cause the software is exactly the same like last year.

Opinions please?

For those interested:

i Just find the culprit, windvd 11.6 upgrade pack, the software is smarter than anydvd, rolling back to 11.5 solved this "issue" or using powerdvd.
