    You're getting this error message?

    Failed to Read DVD!

    This could have several different reasons.

    1) Dirty try and clean
    2)Damaged Replace it
    3) Drive is a Region Locked RPC2 . . . scrambled, different region. Try to find RPC1 patched firmware
    4) Drive is an RPC2 not assigned a Region. Try to find RPC1 patched firmware

    That typically indicates a bad original disc even if it plays fine.

    A. 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?

    This isn't good either. Remove the InCD.

    That's the first time I've ever seen that message with a dvd.

    Something is severely messed up on your system, your drive, or with that particular disc.

    Anydvd handles that title perfectly fine by the way.

    Incd (and packet writing software in general) is bad news. Nero's Incd is packet writing software, which can interfere with a lot of programs including Slysoft's. If you want drag-and-drop functionality, use dvd-ram instead (with a FAT file format), which is more stable.

    Uninstall Nero's Incd. Check to ensure those two entries I quoted no longer appear in your filters after rebooting.

    If you can't figure out how to remove the filters, do this:

    i) Create a backup of your registry
    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
    (it's also an excellent program imo)
    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Select "InCDPass". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Select "incdrm". Click "Remove Selected Filter" Click "ok".
    iv) Reboot

    Keep in mind Incd will no longer function properly.

    B's Recorder Gold . . . I'm not positive about whether this filter may cause issues, but it's possible.

    Again, if you can't figure out how to remove that filter, do this:

    i) Create a backup of your registry
    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
    (it's also an excellent program imo)
    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order.Select "cdrbsdrv ". Click "remove selected filter". Click "ok". Reboot

    Whatever program installed that filter will no longer work properly.

    That disc looks badly damaged.

    1. Remove Incd (and maybe that B Recorder's Gold filter). It's important that the filters I listed no longer appear in your registry. Reboot after removing those filters.

    2. Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. With Anydvd running in the background, select the tab labeled "scandisc". Select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your disc is (probably) bad and needs to be exchanged--even if it plays fine (or your optical drive could be slowly dying).
