Today's release of AnyDVD Version 126.96.36.199 allows you to remove the
"Macrovision CDS-300" copy protection.
CDS-300 is only to be found on audio CDs and permanently installs itself on Windows operating systems, very similarly to the 'Root Kit' (XCP) from Sony. AnyDVD developers claim that the new AnyDVD software not only removes this copy restriction, it also prevents the installation of similar unwanted copy protection drivers.
AnyDVD removes copy protections transparently in the background. To
the operating system and all software applications the copy protected
CD appears as a "Red-Bood standard" compliant audio CD without any
copy protection. All common software applications can be used for
playback or transfer to portable music devices. Making backup copies
(e.g. for use in your car audio system) is also possible, without
any problems, according to Slysoft, the company behind the software.
Giancarlo Bettini, CEO of SlySoft, points out the special features for
audio CDs from AnyDVD: "Most customers don't even know, that AnyDVD not
just deals with movie DVDs, it also removes basically all copy
restrictions of audio CDs. Furthermore, it protects your operating
system from the installation of unwanted drivers like the Sony 'Root Kit'
or Settec Alpha-DVD. Therefore we recommend our customers to activate
AnyDVD at all times."
