F.A.Q.'s

Q. I installed DVD43 Plug-in on my computer. My copy program still complains that the DVD is encrypted. What am I doing wrong?
A.
It's more than likely that your copy program doesn't support decrypter plug-ins. Most DVD copy programs don't yet support decrypter plug-ins.

Q.  I'm using DVD43 but my DVD copy program still doesn't work well copying newer DVDs. Why is this?
A.
  DVD43 will decrypt the files on the DVD so that your copy program can read them. However, if the DVD structure is non standard or the DVD contains bad sectors, your copy program needs to take care of that. Outdated copy programs can't handle bad sectors commonly found on newer DVDs. You need a copy program that provides frequent updates to handle new movies as they are released.

Q. I installed the DVD43 Plug-in but there is no application icon, how can I launch it?
A.
The DVD43 Plug-in isn't an application, it's a DLL that's installed in your Windows system folder. It provides an interface that copy programs can use to decrypt DVDs using Microsoft Windows.

Q. What gets installed on my computer and where are the files located?
A.
"DVD43.dll" is installed in the Windows system folder. For example, on a 64 bit Windows 7 computer, it's installed in the "Windows\SysWOW64" folder. There are three other files installed in the "Program Files (x86)" folder: "DVD43 Plugin API.txt", "History.txt" and "unins000.exe".

Q. How do I uninstall the plug-in?
A.
Go to your Program Files folder and run the uninstall program. For example: "ProgramFiles (x86)\unins000.exe".

Q. I'm a software developer and I want to use the DVD43 Plug-in API. Where can I get more information and sample code?
A.
The "DVD43 Plugin API.txt" file ("ProgramFiles(86)" folder) contains information about each of the exported functions and also provides sample code to use the API.
