    I recently purchased King of Kong on DVD (great documentary) and am having trouble creating a backup. It must be using some type of relatively unique encryption as I haven't seen this problem before in 200+ rips.

    I have the latest versions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD. Whenever AnyDVD attempts to decrypt the disc, I get an error message saying the disc cannot be read and provides a list of 4 reasons (none of which seem to be the culprit, the disc is brand new).

    I'm unable to create a copy using clonedvd or so much as rip the dvd to my hard drive. Can anyone help?

    no, it doesn't

    1. Use Anydvd 6.3.1.4: click http://sandbox.slysoft.com/beta/SetupAnyDVD6314.exe

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

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

    3. If you use something other than Clonedvd, right click the red fox icon on your toolbar-->select "rip video-dvd to haddisk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want.

    4. Use the latest Clonedvd: click
    http://static.slysoft.com/SetupCloneDVD.exe

    5. Follow the steps from this link in order: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=476 (follow them step by step)

    6. If you still have problems, then . . .

    A. Upload the .zip to the fourms:

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) 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)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"


    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), 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). What problem are you having exactly?

    C) click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=5091 to see if your question has already been answered

    Ok I got it to work. After upgrading to 6.3.1.3, CloneDVD still didn't want to work. However, I ripped it to my hard drive using AnyDVD and then used the "write from existing data" option in CloneDVD. Much to my surprise, it worked.

    Like I said, I've made hundreds of backups and this is a first for me. Oddly enough, it takes my standalone dvd player 30+ seconds fire up the original disc.

    That really doesn't make any sense. Anydvd ripper uses some of the same code from Clonedvd.
    And if you use "Write existing data", both the source and destination disc sizes have to be the same.

    Are you using Clonedvd 2.9.1.5?

    How so? What happens in Clonedvd? Provide a full error message. You're going to need to be a lot more specific than "didn't want to work".

    Do this please (both steps):

    1.
    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) 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)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"

    2.
    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), 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). What problem are you having exactly?
