I have been happily ripping HD DVD's with AnyDVD today (maybe 5 so far) and I have encountered a few (three actually) that won't even be recognized. It's the Blade Runner 5 disc complete collector's edition. I believe it is a USA copy don't know where it was pressed but tell me how to find out and I can report back on that. The three HD DVD's in the box set don't get recognized by the drive. What I mean by that is the drive ramps up spinning and anydvd pops up and says it scanning the disc and then it never stops. I let it run for a good 5 minutes. My understanding is to post a log file the disc needs to be recognized. IE anydvd stops reading the disc and knows what the disc title is. This seems like a drive problem but I am not sure. The drive is obviously older and I forget the model but I can post back with that if it is important. Any insight would be helpful.
