    After updating to v8.3.9.0 here is what is happening in sequential order...

    01. I select rip video disc to hard to hard disc.

    02. In the destination dialog strip, I select the drive, then the main folder Victoria, then I select the Season 03 folder and then I finally select Disc 01 in the season 03 folder...

    03. I then click on the Copy Disc button....

    04. The Error Dialog Box appears

    05. The error pop up reads L:\Commercial DVD\Victoria (2017)\?Victoria Season 03 (2019)\Disc 01\Victoria S3 Disc 1
    The File Name, Directory Name Or Volume Label Syntax is Incorrect

    06. I just tied AnyDVD using Victoria Season 02 disc's AnyDVD works fine....but I noticed that there wasn't a ? mark before Victoria Season 03 (2019) (see above in 05 error pop up reads)

    I am running Windows 8.1 Pro

    Here is what I have tried....I switched DVD Burners, I tried moving the Season 03 folders to different HDD's,
    I took just the season 03 folder and transferred it to the main/1st HDD primary drive list in three different HDD's, I deleted AnyDVD and did a new complete installation using both v8.3.8.0 and v., I shut the machine down waited 10 minutes and restarted the OS.

    I have attached the Log File.....

    The error message pretty much says it all. Does the path " L:\Commercial DVD\Victoria (2017)\?Victoria Season 03 (2019)\Disc 01\" exist? If not, you must create the directories or choose a different destination path.

    I've stumbled upon this "problem" of invalid path a few times myself. Is there any way @James you could have the anydvd ripper create the missing folder(s) structure just like the CloneDVD one can. After all the ripper is based on it :)

    Maybe, but this doesn't solve the problem today.

    The "?" character in the path of the folder is a forbidden one by Windows.

    Use the "browse" button in AnyDVD ripper dialog to browse (and create, if desired) directories.
    Or - even better - use CloneDVD to rip.

    The 2nd option is my go-to. Was just suggesting of adding they capability for users who don't have clonedvd

    @James and @Ch3vr0n,

    like said. It's very obvious that L:\Commercial DVD\Victoria (2017)\?Victoria Season won't work.

    Yes, but I assume this was a typo of the OP writing the message in the forum.
