    I'm having difficulty playing this disk with AnyDVD(

    AnyDvd refuses to recognise the disk as a Movie DVD, yet it plays in the DVD player

    @ underholt,

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Suggest reviewing the AnyDVD Forum sticky titled “Frequently Asked Questions (READ BEFORE YOU POST)” (http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=5091) and note comments posted in item #13b. Unfortunately it is quite possible your particular “Jason and the Argonauts” Commercial DVD Movie Title contains a flaw.

    What does it recognize it as?

    1 ) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered, b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s).

    2) a)Click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    b) Navigate to "Program Settings".
    c) Click "enable logging".
    d) Click "ok".
    e) Put the problematic disc in your optical drive/reader.
    f) Go to your My Documents folder
    g) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip"
    h) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    i) if you don't see that icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    j) a small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    k) click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    l) click "upload"

    3)a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Check to see if your system ("my computer") now reports a disc in drive. Do you see a video_ts folder (if you're using a dvd)? Do you see folders or files?

    If the answer is "no" to "d)", then Anydvd isn't your problem. As Anydvd is not on your system, Anydvd can't interfere or block the reading process. Possibly your reader or burner is slowing dying, the original disc is bad, or a number of other possibilities exist as well (including messed up ide/sata busdrivers, bad cable on the back of the drive, etc.)

    If the answer is "yes", click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=1559 and follow the steps (note that step 4 requires you to post information)

    It finally unlocked after nearly 10 minutes

    Attached is the log file

    A message box poped saying I should set my drive to region 2 because it failed to crack the CSS key for part of the disk.

    My drive is already set to region 2 the same as the disk.

    Actually, it's not. It's set to region 1.

    There's no protection at all on this disc, other than CSS (which is found on most discs). So whatever problems you're experiencing is not related to protection on this disc.

    With respect to the message you received . . .

    from Frequently Asked Questions (READ BEFORE YOU POST)

    14. Anydvd pops up with a message everytime I place this one dvd in the drive. The error message says unable to find CSS key due to region mismatch and that I need to set my dvd drive region to the same as the dvd to avoid this error in the future. Does anyone know how to do this?

    a) You can usually ignore that error message, and Anydvd will still work properly with your burning program.

    b) If you're still having problems, this is what you do

    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

    Firstly thanks for all the help

    I've not had any issues with other discs

    Also the same happens in the external Freecom DVD writer

    According to windows my region code is 2 (see attachment)

    I'm performing a nero scan disk on the disk to see if its faulty

    That's only because Anydvd is enabled. You need to exit Anydvd before you check.

    Changing the region to 2 (when AnyDVD was disabled) fixed the issue
