AnyDVD HD 7.6.9.2 by RedFox.bz

......

A word of caution, though. If you wish to use the plugin "Add by DVD Disc ID", you must disable AnyDVD, or else it will read incorrect IDs !!! That plugin is not compatible with AnyDVD.

This is 100% true!!!

My licensed copy of AnyDVD has always given the WRONG DVD Disc ID.

That's really strange. AnyDVD has always worked for me to correct the DVD IDs in Windows 10. Which version(s) of AnyDVD have you been using? Some very old ones may not have implemented the code to correct the DVD IDs.

The way to get the correct DVD Disc ID every time is to use the DVD Profiler "Add by DVD Disc ID" Plug-in by DJ Doena.

I agree that it does work in many cases, but it may be a little cumbersome. Normally, you would want your DVDs filed under their UPC/EAN-codes, not under their Disc IDs.

For me it ALWAYS GIVES THE CORRECT Disc ID.
Once I have a Profile, with the correct Disc ID, I just edit the profile to be a UPC Profile (it keeps the correct Disc ID)

Quote:
And in many cases, you would want to add the Disc ID to an existing profile. In those cases you would have to use the plug-in to create a new "dummy" profile in the database, copy the Disc ID to your proper profile, and then delete the dummy one.

Yes, that is one way to do it.

However, what to do if there are more than one disc in your DVD set, for example a main feature and bonus materials on separate discs? I haven't found any way to enter the IDs of more than one disc. Perhaps you can teach us some clever trick?

I did not say the "Add by DVD Disc ID" Plug-in by DJ Doena was a cure all solution for the Disc ID problem internal to DVD Profiler. I did say  "it ALWAYS GIVES THE CORRECT DVD Disc ID".

Maybe if enough users  thank DJ Doena for his excellent plug-in, we can persuade him to add new features to the plug-in.

The only way I know to edit/correct "all the DVD Disc IDs" in a multi-disc profile, is to create dummy profiles for each disc, then to use the "BulkEdit" Plug-in by mediadogg to edit the multi-disc profile, then delete the dummy profiles. I personally have never taken the time to do this.

Things are getting complicated...

Redfox, the maker of AnyDVD, simply vanished without a trace last month. That means that AnyDVD will no longer be updated. If you only need it for correcting the Disc ID in DVD Profiler, that may not be a big issue. But if you use it for its intended purpose - playing discs from any region, or other functions that rely on its decryption engine, you may want some other software that's being updated to cope with the latest discs.

So is there a replacement for AnyDVD? Sort of - but they don't seem to work with DVD Profiler. 

Xreveal looked promising. In its Status window, it displays the correct DVDID, both as old and new versions of Windows see it:
Disc Information
Label: <23934 Julens hjaltar disk1>
Capacity: 7,92 GB (4157680 sectors)
Timestamp: 2014-04-15 08:15:08 +01:00
Authoring tool:
DVDID: 97C58A2E982ED034
DVDID_win10: E860E8F051493F7F

But, strangely enough, with Xreveal running, DVD Profiler reads a third DVDID that has no resemblance to the two above:
85BB69235A856D78 [<23934 Julens hjaltar disk1>]

So I tried DVDFab Passkey which makes DVD Profiler read yet another DVDID:
53420C3C7205C307 [<23934 Julens hjaltar disk1>]

What to do now?

To me, it is neither "Vintage Classics" nor "MGM Vintage Classics". There is the "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo" on the cover. There are the words "Vintage Classics" or the cover, but neither of those is an edition. "Vintage Classics" is just some text they put on the cover (not an actual edition).

I checked several MGM DVDs in my collection with similar covers and nowhere on the actual DVD disc label does it say "Vintage Classics".

I actually have a couple of doubled dipped DVDs, and the cover on one copy says "Vintage Classics" and the cover on other DVD cover does not, but both have the exact same DVD with the exact same label inside.

If the cover actually said "Vintage Classics Edition" or "MGM Vintage Classics Edition", I would accept that in the profile.

If the cover actually said "Vintage Classics Collection" or "MGM Vintage Classics Collection", I would accept that in the profile.

Or just hold the Ctrl key and select Refresh Online Profile List... under the Online... tab.

This just downloads the complete online profile list, you still need to Refresh Updated Profiles as usual.
Thank you, this worked for me.!

Agree with Danae Cassandra on this. Don't read to much into it, GSyren.

we can either use DVD Profiler offline to just keep managing our local databases

Unfortunately, no. DVDP requires Invelos to add new titles. Try it. Cut your internet connection and try to add new titles. I stumbled upon this fact then Invelos was down a few months ago.


OK, I have DVDProfiler installed on a spare computer, with just 30 profiles in the local database that I use for test purposes.

As suggested, I cut my internet connection and tried to add new titles.

I am able to add new profiles to the collection by using the "Add by UPC" function within the program, I just make sure I uncheck the "Download profile from Invelos" checkbox.

This is a hard one to decide!

Spine wins. "The Thing: 3 Movie Collection" in the Title field.


You are almost correct.
I agree the title could be taken from the spine.
However, the title would be "The Thing 3-Movie Collection"
See the example on http:/www.invelos.com/dvdpro/contributions/Rules.aspx?display=boxsets

The example on that page is "Alien Quadrilogy" not "Alien: Quadrilogy"

However, the page says "The title for a Box Set should be the title listed on the front cover, for example Alien Quadrilogy".

Therefore: I believe Addicted2DVD is almost correct.

I disagree on the way that the cover is per rules it should be...

Title: The Thing / The Thing from Another World / The Thing
Edition: 3-Movie Collection

Then child profiles for each individual title.


But, I don't think "3-Movie Collection" is an edition.

And to me it is very confusing that "The Thing" is listed twice in this suggested title "The Thing / The Thing from Another World / The Thing".

Personally, I think in this case we should go with what the spine says "The Thing 3-Movie Collection" in the Title field.

In my local collection I would enter it as "The Thing 3-Movie Collection: The Thing (1985) / The Thing from Another World / The Thing (2011)" all in the Title Field and lock my profile.
