    In the future, please at least do 7B, so I'm not guessing what your problem is.

    Follow these steps in the order they are listed:

    i. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
    ii. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
    iii.Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
    iv. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
    v. Click "properties".
    vi. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
    vii. Select the region that you're in
    viii. Start Anydvd

    Nero's Incd is packet writing software, which interferes with a lot of programs including Slysoft's. If you want drag-and-drop functionality, use dvd-ram instead, which is more stable.

    Typically installed by Arcsoft Photo Impressions. That filter also causes a lot of problems.

    Asapiw2k.sys - Used by Pinnacle Studio 9 by Pinnacle systems or VOB Computersysteme GMBH

    That filter may cause conflicts with Anydvd

    i) Create a backup of your registry
    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program:
    (it's also an excellent program imo)
    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Select "ASAPIW2k". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Select "InCDPass". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Select "incdrm". Click "Remove Selected Filter. Select "Afc". Click "Removed Selected Filter". Click "ok".
    iv) Reboot

    Keep in mind the programs that installed those filters will no longer function properly

    3. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    4. If you use DVDShrink or programs that generally can't handle structural protections, right-click on the fox icon on your toolbar and select "Rip video-dvd to Hard Disk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want. This is an important step if the original disc contains structural protection.

    click and read fully

    You don't need to do this if you own Clonedvd or are planning to make a backup with Clonecd.

    5. Use Clonedvd click

    6. Follow the steps from this link in order: click (follow them step by step)

    If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click

    7. If you still have problems, then . . .

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
    n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at

    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?

    C) Click to see if your question has already been answered

    The video ID code uses <<, :, and >>. It appears that the AnyDVD ripper can't handle it; much like the issue with the : in 3:10 to Yuma.
    Run AnyDVD in the background and then drag-n-drop the files. Plays back fine that way, and burns too!

    No. Anydvd ripper handles this disc perfectly fine, and in fact, that's what you should be using with this title if you use Shrink:

    I'm not sure where you came up with this information but it's absolutely wrong.

    Why go to the extra trouble?

    Back when Blades of Glory was released there was an issue with the volume name being <BLADES_OF_GLORY> but that was fixed. Colons also do not cause a problem since 3:10 to Yuma can most certainly be ripped with the AnyDVD ripper.

    The only existing problem with volume names and the AnyDVD ripper, at present and that has been confirmed, is a volume name containing a question mark.

    The AnyDVD ripper has no issues whatsoever with handling the volume name for The Golden Compass.

    Below are some images...

    The Golden Compass completed successfully using the AnyDVD ripper. The AnyDVD ripper removed the less than and the greater than signs.


    Below is a disc that I created. The volume name was made to be <EX:pERIMENT>. The AnyDVD ripper removed the less than and greater than signs and replaced the colon with an underscore:


    Below is an image of how the volume names of the two discs show up with AnyDVD disabled:

    The <> was put there to halt RipIt4Me. AnyDVD has no problems with it.
