    1. Installed AnyDVD
    2. Tried to backup "No Country For Old Men"
    3. Instead created 3 pretty silver coasters.
    4. Uninstalled AnyDVD
    5. Re-installed AnyDVD
    6. Successfully made backup copy of "No Country For Old Men"

    What would be helpful? I couldn't find anyone who has successfully backed up with I've used a lot, as I have earlier versions. I use CloneDVD2 for my backups exclusively. The first disc errored at 98% (it actually ejected the disc without me clicking anything, which is a first). The 2nd and 3rd said they were successful, but wouldn't play in any DVD player, the computer, or even be read by CloneDVD2.

    If you want to behave like a troll in addition to being completely wrong, then find another place to do it. :policeman:

    Consider yourself banned for a week. You want help? Then read the stickies at the top of the forum and provide required information before posting and stop wasting our time: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=321 (2, 3, 9, and 10)

    Your issue has absolutely nothing to do with the version of Anydvd you're using. Period. There's no protection on this disc other than CSS.

    While you're gone, familiarize yourself with these guidelines:

    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media). Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not Valueline), Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.


    3. Try lowering your burn speed a little (if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x or 8x instead of 16x)

    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom"
    http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=476 (step 3)

    5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    6. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in whatever burning program you're using (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.

    7. Click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=5083

    Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step 6)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore or MAM-A 8x +R DL, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")
