I'm a little slow on the uptake, but after someone informed me that CloneDVD didn't copy Blu-Ray, I thought I was all set. I used the copy "Rip DVD" to hard disk option on AnyDVD HD, and it gets to about 65% completion and then fails. The stated error is "Failed to read DVD." It then goes on to mention 4 possible reasons. The only one that seems likely is the Region setting warning. I can go ahead and set the region, but I have sucessfully ripped Casino Royal without it set, so I'm wondering if that is really the culprit. The AnyDVD status screen shows: Summary for drive H: (AnyDVD 184.108.40.206) SONY BDRW BWU-100A 1.0E FEB23 ,2007BRF2 Drive (Hardware) Region: 0 (not set!) Media is a Blu-Ray disc.
