    The new AI scanner has four modes:

    Very Fast (Default)
    Fast
    Thorough
    Deep Scan

    Could you please explain in more detail the difference between each of these modes? (For example, what is included in Deep Scan that is not included in Thorough, etc.)

    Which one is the best one to use for accuracy (ignoring speed and performance) when doing "clone" type backups (i.e., when using CloneCD or something similar).

    James has said the Very Fast is the best to use, which is why it's default. He said that if that doesn't work it's either a bug or a new protection. The others presumably look deeper into the DVD structure, but, should never be necessary. The Very Fast setting has worked on every disc I've tried it on.

    Where did James say this, do you have a link?

    There is no official link but maybe James himself can reply to this for you?

    Just believe Charlie, because it is true. Use the default mode.:agree:

    Yes we here will recommend the default setting.

    He didn't say it on the forum. I asked him about it cause I was curious, as well.

    OK, thanks, I was just hoping to hear an "official" (i.e., James) source chime in on this.

    I'm still interested in learning about what the different modes do and how they work, without of course revealing any trade secrets.

    Well maybe in a few days or so we might have more info on this.

    As SamuriHL said - you should leave it alone. :)

    OK. :)

    However, the modes are there, and are user selectable, therefore I cannot help but wonder about them and what they do. [​IMG]

    Try each setting and test your results.

    Will the default setting work with kid DVDs with games on it?

    It should. Try it. If you find a bug, report it. :)

    I would if I had some :(. I think there might be one lying around somewhere.

    So....your question was hypothetical? :D Cars has some interactive stuff on it and it handled that just fine in the latest beta. I don't know what else I have that has interactive stuff on it. I'm not usually into that sort of thing on DVDs.

    Not really. I remember RipIt4Me having some problems with interactive games on DVDs. I'm just wondering if anybody has seen any problems with the default setting. :)

    Yea, don't think I haven't taken the R4M thing into consideration. So far, AnyDVD is winning. ;)

    lol, so I've seen. Well if I find the DVD I am thinking of I will test it out. Otherwise I will have to wait for a report, or keep it on deep scan.
