    I just made a backup of 'Children of Men', but I've tried 'Foxy Brown' twice and it won't work. When I insert the disc, it plays the title menu, but then it plays a black screen. The DVD says it came out in 2001.

    Here is the original disc info:

    1. Update to Anydvd 6.1.6.5

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

    Are you assuming how to fix it, because I don't want to waste another blank disc for this movie if you are wrong.

    Anyway, this is ridiculous of me to update again, because I just updated last week. I'm guessing AnyDVD didn't update to include MGM discs from 2001!

    Follow Webslinger's advice.

    Who said anything about wasting another disc? Rip the DVD to your HDD and see if the problem still exists. I always rip to my HDD and check things out before burning.

    As for updating, updated versions of programs are done for a reason. Updates fix bugs and add to the usefulness of a program. If your current version isn't working why won't you update? More often than not updating AnyDVD doesn't even require a reboot. It's a simple process. I'm not trying to be a wiseass, either.

    Do as Webslinger asked and if the problem doesn't go away then post back and it can be looked into further. :)

    :rolleyes:

    Well, then I'm sure you can figure your issue out without my further advice. 6.1.6.0 had at least one bug in it. People should always be using the latest official releases of Anydvd (at the very least).

    r_grayhat,
    Is this "Foxy Brown 2001 MGM feature" a game or DVD-ROM feature other than video title? CloneDVD only copies video titlesets and ignores other stuff on the original.

    If you want to copy the whole original disk, including non video "features" then you have to use Slysoft's CloneCD to make a 1:1 exact copy of the original. Be aware that if the original is a double layer original, you will need DL backup disk media (buy Verbatim brand DL +R media only and bitset it to DVD-ROM ... CloneCD does not compress.

    I think it's this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Foxy-Brown-Pam-Grier/dp/B000053VBA/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-7842280-4982548

    Edit: Also, he's using 1ClickDVDCopy 4.2.9.1 and not Clonedvd

    So really, he should do what shannon90210 says here: http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=26050&postcount=4
    (in addition to updating Anydvd; clicking the "default" and "ok" buttons in Anydvd, using good quality blank media like Verbatim, TY Premium, or Maxell Plus/Broadcast Quality;and possibly updating 1-Click as well).

    But, hey, what do I know?

    Ok, sorry. He wrote "feature not working" in the title of his thread and I have not heard the word "feature" used to describe a movie since the days when I went to black and white movies in the theater! :D Also didn't notice he was using 1Click. :doh: So my answer is way off base on two counts. Please don't have me sin binned ... I don't like associating with the kind of people one meets in a penalty box! :disagree:

    Nah, I'll just swing by and take away your Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore (just to, uh, keep it safe . . . yeah) and force you to use Memorex and Princo branded blank media instead. :D

    Also, don't apologize when you're just trying to help. No apologies are needed. We all make mistakes when reading stuff too quickly (and I'm one of the worst offenders).
