    It seems weird, but I just bought this new DVD from Amazon, and when I tried to rip it using 3 different drives -2 x BD-RW and 1 DVD-RW- they all failed after like 3%! I used both the builtin ripping tool and imgburn, and failed on both occasions...

    Is it possible that this DVD is encrypted in a different way? Because Win 10 X64 does not show any folders at all, just empty DVD-ROM disc!

    The crystal ball is on the blink right now so a logfile for the DVD you're having problems with might be handy.
    There's a handy "How To" in signature below...

    You need to set the region for your drive.

    "Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD HD, BDPHash.bin 17-07-03)
    PIONEER BD-RWBDR-UD03 1.05 15/11/24PIONEER
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 0 (not set!)"

    Follow the below steps and try ripping your dvd again

    Exit AnyDVD by RIGHT clicking the Red Fox icon on your system tray & click on "Exit"
    (Note: Icon may be hidden. Click on the up arrow on system tray to see the icon)

    Go to Device Manager

    Click on DVD/CD-ROM drives

    RIGHT click on the drive that needs it's region set

    Click on Properties

    Click on DVD Region

    Select your Region

    Click OK

    Restart Anydvd by double clicking the Red Fox icon on your desktop

    Please post a new log if you still have problems after setting your region

    Ideas for Developer, If you got tired of telling people to set their DVD region all the time when new members keep posting many topics so it's idea when you set auto email sender once new member set up their account then it will send their verification and AnyDVD setup come with how to set Region too so that way less topic starts or pin 'How to Set Region' in first page and Newest AnyDVD Release on the top of the forum. So how about it? just set most commons issues pinned under the AnyDVD version as well as other products. :)

    Yes - your region is now set

    "Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD HD, BDPHash.bin 17-07-03)
    PIONEER BD-RWBDR-UD03 1.05 15/11/24PIONEER
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 1"

    Is your dvd "Saint Rita (2004)"?

    If yes - odds are you have a defective dvd and need to exchange it.

    Someone with more knowledge (such as James) can tell for sure by looking at your log(s)

    Note: I see you used Imgburn to rip your dvd. You should use Clonedvd to rip dvds or RIGHT click the Red Fox icon on your system tray & click on "Rip Video Disc (Dvd) to Harddisk...".

    You can try to set AI scanner to "always enabled".

    You will not believe this, it started ripping, now I am @ 14% with speed 5.2 MB/sec and increasing, what was that option for? and Why it is not recommended?!

    Another question, now I am using the builtin ripping option...How reliable is this compared to imgburn?!

    *edit* is the AI option available for Blu-Rays?

    The ISO is corrupted! Now I am ripping again with imgburn!

    You're not supposed to use the ISO ripper AT ALL on DVD's! Use the folder ripper (Rip Video DVD to hard disk) and feed THAT into IMGBurn

    And why is that? people were making isos since late 90s! All my DVDs are ISOs, and Blu-Rays are remuxes made from ISOs that I did rip using imgburn...this is the 1st DVD to fail on me!

    Guess what?! I used the builtin ripper to rip as a folder, and all the files are there and working! So, thnx for the hint...But I have to be honest with you, I will always make isos unless I've had troubles...

    One last question, shall I leave the AI Scanner option enabled all the time ?!

    No, reset that setting to the default value or you could encounter problems in the future that wouldn't happen otherwise.

    As to why you shouldn't do DVD iso's, well one of the reasons is that the file ripper removes structural protection, while the iso ripper copies it into the iso.

    For Blu-ray it's the opposite, recommended method is ISO ripper and NOT the file ripper.

    No - James usually mentions that you restore the AI scanner back to the way it was after you use it on a particular dvd.

    If you want to make an ISO, then use CloneDVD to do so.
    (I'm sure that was the recommended method. Someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    It is, you're correct.

    If you used AnyDVD's built-in ripper to rip a DVD to files/folder(s) then ImgBurn can create an ISO from those files.

    CloneDVD allows the original layer break position to be preserved when ripping to ISO.
