Remove Sony ARccOS

What is ARccOS protection?

ARccOS, Advanced Regional Copy Control Operation Solution, is a copy protection system which is designed by Sony. It’s used on some DVDs. ARccOS protection as an additional layer is used in conjunction with Content Scramble System (CSS).

Some DVDs with ARccOS cannot be played on some DVD players such as Sony DVPCX995, Toshiba SD4700, Harman Kardon DVD101, Microsoft Xbox and others.
