    James, I noticed that this version of AnyDVD still does not remove the invalid characters like this example Title: $ DVD Movie $ I can't copy it due to the invalid characters. There are some movie out there with this cheap trick. :bowdown:

    Can you give an example with using the Anydvd status screen please? I'd like to know what movies these are.

    It does not remove $, because it isn't an invalid character in Windows. Or is it?

    echo hello > $.txt
    type $.txt
    hello

    works just fine...???

    EDIT:
    echo hello > "$ DVD Movie $"
    type "$ DVD Movie $"
    hello

    works as well....

    This is an AnyDVD info that came from a DVD Recorder disc from a PHILIPS DVD Recorder model DVDR3390
    I can give you the ifo's if you wish.

    I tried it in CloneDVD2 and 1Click DVD copy with no results. 1Click simply saids there is 1 mb file and records to disc in one
    second which means it copied nothing. And cloneDVD2 which states "Unknowed error has accured"

    For some weird reason, some DVD Recorders do not support of copying DVDs from a DVD recorder which is weird if you ask me.

    Anydvd is intended for use with original pressed commercial dvds (or at least something that attempts to comply with a dvd-video standard) and not the dvd-vr (video recording) format.

    Disable the option to "remove protection based on unreadable sectors", this shouldn't be needed on recorded discs.

    Why would there be all that protection from a DVD recorder?

    I unticked that option James and, I got the same results in CloneDVD2. "Unknowed error has accured"
    any other suggestions :bowdown:

    My DVD Recorder makes a completely protection free disc, and it is region free.

    Not all DVD recorders are created the same way ;)

    Because different companies make them :)

    I would avoid buying a DVD Recorder from any company who includes protection on the discs it makes.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-VR

    "The DVD-VR standard defines a logical format for video recording on DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM style media, including the dual layer versions of these media. As opposed to media recorded with the DVD+VR recording standard, the resulting media are not DVD Video compliant, and will not play back in any DVD Video player. Most DVD video recorders in the market that support DVD-R, DVD-RW, or DVD-RAM media will allow recording to these media in DVD-VR mode, as well as in a DVD Video compliant mode.


    also http://www.ulead.com/learning/general/video_04_1.htm

    "Limitations of the DVD VR format


    There are some limitations with the DVD VR format. Firstly there are two different DVD VR formats today: DVD-VR and DVD+VR. Each of these flavors of DVD VR has its own set of limitations in terms of editing and playback compatibility. For example when you delete a video from a disc using the DVD+VR format, you will not necessarily be able to immediately re-use that space, while with DVD-VR you will be able to. On the other hand a DVD-VR formatted disc will only playback on a DVD-VR aware device such as a home DVD Recorder that supports DVD-RW or DVD-RAM. A DVD+VR formatted disc will play on most DVD players. Also DVD-VR uses playlists instead of the navigation menus you are used to seeing on a DVD, while DVD+VR uses regular menus (with a 30MB space limitation for menus, menu video and menu music). Finally, each format is compatible with certain types of DVD media. In general, DVD-VR format is used with DVD-RW and DVD-RAM discs, while DVD+VR should be used with DVD+RW discs."


    So, in summary, dvd-vr is not dvd-video compliant, and the discs do not play in all dvd players.

    Anydvd and Clonedvd do not handle this format--and were never intended to.

    The discs I've made with my DVD Recorder have worked on multiple standalone players.

    Then it's probably supports dvd+vr recording--or your other standalone players are capable of playing dvd-vr (or whatever format your recorder is using).

    How can I tell?

    A lot of standalone recorders, when you use a DVD-RW disc, will let you record as either DVD-VR or DVD-Video (with a DVD-R disc you can, typically, only use the DVD-Video mode with a lot of recorders). Take dvd-rw disc and set the standalone to record in dvd-vr. Then try playing it in other players. Chances are the other players are going to choke.

    I am using DVD-R discs.

    So, in all likelyhood, you're burning in a dvd-video compliant format anyway. Mystery solved

    dvd-vr is different; it's not standard, and it suffers from compatibility issues. Furthermore, it's not supported by Anydvd nor Clonedvd.

    Good. I still have the owner's manual so I am going to look through it for some things.

    The manual states that the unit records in DVD+VR automatically.
