Clicking on Rip to Hard Disk Doesn't Do Anything

    Hi. I used the AnyDVD free trial in August 2016 on my Asus laptop and it worked great. I recently upgraded to an SSD and a fresh install of Windows and installed the newest free trial of AnyDVD, but whenever I click on the button to rip the DVD to the hard disk or rip DVD to ISO, nothing happens at all. If it were to lock me out due to my hardware, it would have told me. I restarted and reinstalled several times, but it still doesn't work. The DVD is an old Arthur PBS special DVD from 2002, and it appears that AnyDVD was at least able to remove the protection. What can I do?

    To me, AnyDVD is the most reliable and easy to use option for getting exact digital backups, so I have no idea what else to use. It's really annoying that the most popular recommendations are the ones that compress the quality, have a ton of settings, and remove the DVD menus. I also have a MacBook Pro as my main computer now and I tried to use MacXDVD Pro from a free giveaway, but the files came out encrypted, so I doubt WinXDVD on Windows would make a difference.

    Let's start with you providing an anydvd logfile of the problematic disc

    Well, I haven't activated the Windows 7 product key yet, but everything seemed to be working fine without it. Could it be that I reinstalled it on the same hardware, but with a different drive?

    Your windows being activated or not is irrelevant, purchased anydvd licenses are user bound, not machine bound.

    That said, you really should activated your windows 7 and upgrade to windows 10 (or do a clean install and use the key directly). Your OS is end of life and will cease to get all security updates from MS. At that point, if the system is still hooked up to the internet is effectively a security risk

    I've done more research, and I think it may have something to do with the fact that it's a PBS DVD and is difficult to decode, which may be why MacXDVD didn't work properly. Seeing as how it's an old DVD from 2002 and it's now 2019, no one has figured out how to break this encryption?

    Could you please elaborate, what you mean by "nothing happens at all"?
    The rip dialog does not open? Does it open without a disc in the drive?
    Does elby CloneDVD2 work?

    I don't see anything special.
