Thanks Gimbal ,
A friend has some of these DiVX and I said that I would inquire on RR as this is the place for so much information. Is there a way to unlock the discs?

Im not sure what divx`s are, I thought it was a standard of video like WMV or AVI.

If by any chance you mean you have a dvd stuck in the dvd player, theres a hole in the front you can stick a small pin in to open the unit, you just push it in and it springs open.

I think he is referring to DIVX (Digital Video Express) a DVD format that use to be sold by Circuit City before 2000, and not DivX [not an acronym] a digital video codec created and trademarked by DivX, Inc.

DIVX
I was a sucker back in 1997 when DIVX launched at Circuit City in California and picked up a player and some movies. If memory serves, those stupid things were basically "rented" for 48 hours and then you had an option to purchase it at the end of the 48 hour rental period.

There was tremendous backlash from the privacy community because the players had a built-in modem that dialed the "mothership" every now and then. Needless to say, it was short lived.

From http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/glossary.htm

If those don't know the way, you're out of luck. First person crack Bluray hangout there.

DIVX

DIVX was basically DVD stripped of all its extra features - no extras, making-ofs, trailers, multi-language, widescreen picture - introduced by Circuit City and a bunch of greedy Hollywood lawyers in order to completely control movie distribution up to the end user again and to gain complete control over movie playback in your home. DIVX was pay-per-view and a "DIVX-enhanced" DVD player had to be hooked up to your phone line in order to dial in to the DIVX central computer to register when you play a disc and to bill your credit card. A movie was $4.50 - including a 48 hour viewing period - and $2.50 for additional viewing periods. DIVX was stopped after less than a year in operation due to lack of titles (Warner, Sony, New Line, and all the other smaller studios flatly refused to release any titles to the format - THANKS GUYS!!!) and the very negative press it got, mainly from DVD sites on the Internet which later made it into serious printed publications and TV news.

As DIVX uses triple DES encryption it's pretty safe against cryptographic attacks and unless you can crack that encryption there's no way to rip these discs. In other words your DIVX discs will probably remain coasters forever.
