Try cleaning the DVD. Even if it's new it can still be poorly produced and have read errors. No, these errors are not likely to be an evil protection and yes, it may even play just fine. It is possible the original movie you have has some really "bad" sectors. FILEIO 3 usually is a permanent READ error not likely to be fixed by anything you as a user can do. Open a "contact" ticket for AnyDVD and supply an AnyDVD log zip attachment. (Cyclic Redundancy Check) or CRC Error can happen for various reasons and are also NOT protections: The following applies ONLY to original DVDs, not copies or Ebay purchases or garage sale "new" sales: 1) DVD media is dirty - you can try to clean it 2) DVD media is damaged, you have to replace it/exchange it 3) There is a chance your DVD drive needs a firmware update. It's rare but can happen. To find the firmware you currently have use Nero Infotool: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html then got to the manufacturer's site and see if a later firmware is available. Some burning programs may indicate "read" errors or "not found" errors trying to read a DVD with AnyDVD in the background like it normally works with CloneDVD. This is not usually a disc error and is least of all an AnyDVD issue. Most OEM/third-party burn programs or processing software will NOT support on-the-fly READ and then WRITE, especially with newer DVDs. This means you will run into problems trying to use AnyDVD in the background with these products since they can not handle newer sector protections like CloneDVD2 can. And as the studios gallop forward with such things these products will fall more and more behind and you'll need to use "rip video..." first, then burn from the HDD.
