    AnyDVD says it worked, and the Windows DVD player starts playing,
    but the ripper fails to copy


    Note: ripper has worked for many, many, DVDs with prior AnyDVD versions. For example, today these same versions worked with Shazam

    Oh, please set your drive region code.

    No problems with this Disney Title. James is absolutely Right. The region Code on your drives must be set for AnyDVD to work right.

    Thanks I did not expect AnyDVD to 'lie' to me about the region code: I assumed it was reporting the set value (see request)

    However, setting the region, exiting AnyDVD, then a full PC reboot, made no difference. Is there yet another place to set the region?

    I have no idea, why your program reports this. You can ask the makers of this program, or rip with AnyDVD first and use the program with these files.

    Yeah, it is weird. Just started happening.
    I assumed it was a new encryption, but BunnyRip confirms AnyDVD does work with this disc.
    And, I assume, the AnyDVD logs don't point to any issues (I cannot read those).

    The remaining likely possibility is a Windows update from Microsoft.
    (the only changes I know of in the last week: AnyDVD update, new disc, and OS updates)

    In my experience if processing a DVD other than using AnyDVD's built-in ripper or CloneDVD2 likely requires ripping the DVD to HD first and then pointing 3rd party software to the folder created.

    I routinely rip to HD, use VobBlanker to remove menu items I don't want if possible, and then run that through DVDShrink to ensure the files are fully DVD compliant.

    A bit more work, but a system I worked up over the years to get a DVD the way I want.

    Just to tie a bow on it...

    Got my hands on the disc again - issue still there (repeatable).
    however, did rip to HD (as suggested) and convert from there. Success!

    also, had the BluRay of Aladdin too - was able to convert it directly - no rip to HD needed.

    so, while not able to watch on the iPhone on a road trip, did eventually get a viable process (now to investigate CloneDVD)

    I'd try out CloneDVDmobile, and if that doesn't work then please try VSO Software for their DVD Converter program.

    It can convert a ripped DVD (from AnyDVD, of course) into formats like MKV. It has a trial period.

    You can use that if you can't get a trial version of CloneDVDmobile (also sold by RedFox, which is also recommended to convert into an iPhone compatible format) to work out for you.

    I'm an old dog that hates "new tricks" - LOL
    I have AnyDVD set to report for each disc.
    If I see "found and removed structural copy protection", I use the AnyDVD ripper on that disc first.
    A HUGE selling point of AnyDVD is that it will work with ALL processing programs. It's not failed me yet. (save for the debacle re. SawIII LOL)

    I am also an Old Dog, but willing to try New Tricks on occasion, if it makes life easier! To each His/Her own IMHO.
