    I'm getting an error message that I haven't seen before. When I choose the drive that has the DVD, it says " unable to open file- VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO
    It happened so far on The last Mimsy, Astronaut Farmer and Stone Merchant.
    If anyone can help, I would appreciate it!!
    Thanks in Advance

    1, Ensure you're choosing drive f: in Clonedvd (you do not need to be specifying specific file names, just the drive)

    2. Try this:

    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 matches the region on the disc
    viii. Start Anydvd
    ix. click the fox icon on your toolbar. Go to Video dvd--->settings
    x. Change the default to match the region on the disc
    xi. Click Ok

    Do not create multiple threads about the exact same issue please.

    Thanks for your help! I figured it out after I posted the last reply. For some reason, my DVD burner that has always been drive E, is now drive F. I felt like a dufus when I figured it out. I was relieved that it was something so simple.
    Thanks Again!:doh:
