    AnyDVD fails to load "The Father" Screen Actors Guild preview DVD and gives the attached data dump. Also noting this event shut downs AnyDVD with the error and data dump.

    I can guess these discs are more aggressively copy protected since they are putting movies into circulation for Guild member preview, sometimes before theatrical-streaming release dates.

    Hopefully you all can solve this one so I can preview the movie ;)

    Thank you!!

    Sorry, can't help without a logfile, which you can't create, because AnyDVD crashes.
    You can disable "copy protection based on ..." and try to create a logfile.

    AnyDVD seems to crash because of some errors inside the .ifo files.
    However, I don't see any reason, why the .vob files shouldn't play.
    You can try to join VTS_01_1.VOB - VTS_01_6.VOB to a single file (you can do this from the command line) and play it with, e.g. VLC.
