Cannot Create Log Files

    AnyDVD is having problems with a few things...First of which, I cannot save a log file! I am an administrator on the machine, access rights are granted. When I click "Create A Log File" the normal process happens (AnyDVD says it is scanning the disk, I get a notification) however there is no "Volume Label":


    Also, there are no files in either of my AnyDVD Directories including the log file directory it says it was created in. On top of that, no kind of CSS protection was detected :( I know the disk is protected, since I cannot make a direct copy of it.

    Please see my program settings and details below:

    Set your region code to begin with:
    Here's how:

    1. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
    2. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
    3. Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
    4. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
    5. Click "properties".
    6. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
    7. Select the region that you're in
    8. Start Anydvd

    You did get a volume label it's the ' l ' after _info_. Provide the logfile or we can't help you, pictures alone don't mean anything.

    Is this a Video DVD (containing a VIDEO_TS directory)? AnyDVD thinks it isn't.

    Thank you, and sorry for taking so long to reply.

    I've set my Region (1) as instructed, and I re-installed AnyDVD which seems to have fixed the log file issue. I have tried to rip a few disks of this Stargate DVD series, and it always fails. See attached log file and error messages:

    You need to tell us WHAT SOFTWARE and HOW you're ripping it.
    We don't charge by the word here. Be verbose. :D

    There are read errors (many more than I listed here). That usually indicates a defective disc, but sometimes it is a new protection. James would have to say for sure.

    I would suspect a faulty disc, Stargate SG1 has been around for years

    Your disc and / or drive is dirty and / or defective.
    And you should avoid using ripping DVDs to iso. Use CloneDVD2 instead.

    I am having this problem, and the drive is in great shape and the discs are quite clean, with very little scuffing. Some work, some don't. The attached dump is from inserting Season 1 Disc 1 of the DVD Complete Series Collectors' Edition (gold box, I think it may be this SKU - ). ASUS BS-12D-2HT drive. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.
    I have tried using AnyDVD to rip to image or disk and tried CloneDVD2 as well. Inserting the disc prompts the message that not all CSS keys could be decrypted, then rips get to 8% and fail.

    That is probably caused by your drive region not being set. Set your drive region, then try again. Make sure you EXIT or disable AnyDVD before checking or setting the drive region. AnyDVD cannot be running.

    Thanks, that was a good idea but unfortunately I checked and confirmed the drive has been set to Region 1 for a while (and these are Region 1 DVDs). That said, AnyDVD does say in the status window "Emulating RPC-2 drive with region 1!" Should I change a setting so that it doesn't 'emulate' maybe?

    No, that is standard, but an AnyDVD log is really needed.

    I attached one in comment #12 above. I have this one as well if it would help. I can't recall what triggered this one so I'm not sure it's 100% relevant.

    Might try cleaning the disc, or try another more tolerant drive if you have one. From the Status window and Log:

    Thank you mmdavis - it looks in really great shape and I even cleaned it more than once (and I'd tried a different system and drive) maybe it's just that one section has rotted or failed. Since AnyDVD still works wonders on everything else, I'll go that route and see what I can do. I appreciate your help!
