    I too have had this same problem - last week I encountered the same mess with Balls Of Fury. With that disc I returned it for a new one and had no problems. With The Kingdom I am now on my 4th disc and I still cannot get this to work. I have tried 3 different DVD drives on 2 different computers and nothing is working! If anyone has any help other than "it worked for me" it would be greatly appreciated by those of us who are stuck with this one!

    When using DVD Shrink (along side Any DVD) it gets stuck during it's analyzing process at 73% with a Cyclical Redundancy Error. When using CloneDVD2 it gets stuck near the exact same spot. When using DVDFab Platinum same problem. This has happened on all the discs I have tried as well as the DVD drives I tried.

    James hates this filter. Typically it comes with HP software or as an Oak cd driver.

    i) Create a backup of your registry
    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program:
    (it's also an excellent program imo)
    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Select "AFS2K". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Click "ok".
    iv) Reboot

    The program that installed that filter will no longer function properly (in all likelyhood).

    There's no protection on this disc other than CSS. In other words, this disc is pretty basic.

    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).

    Ok - so here is what I have. The disc I bought (r1 WS) gets about halfway through when using Nero CD Speed and documents bad sectors. I went down the street and rented a copy from Redbox and it does the exact same thing. Every other disc I use works perfectly just this disc!

    Lots of bad original discs were made then

    Drinklyeanddie once exchanged a disc 10 times at a store (granted, it wasn't this movie, but the point is bad original discs are no longer uncommon).

    Instead, you should return the original disc you bought.

    I did - many times so far - and I'm going to do the same with my current disc.

    this is just getting frustrating!

    You can also try cleaning the disc.

    Just sounds as though a lot of bad discs were made for this movie

    If PghPunk is from Pittsburgh, could it be a bad batch of discs? I too am from that area and have had the same, and I mean exactly the same problems (in dvd shrink & clonedvd2) that pghpunk listed in the earlier posts.

    Yes, it could. It would be one thing if these discs had some serious structural protection on them, but they don't. Pretty basic . . .

    Another thing that you can try doing (I notice a lite-on drive is being used) is to reduce the read speed of the drive, and see if that helps.
    You can try enabling speed control in Anydvd.

    Yes from Pittsburgh and I took the disc back TWO MORE TIMES today and still having the same results. I'm almost positive that it's not the drive because I have check other drives to no avail. The Giant Eagle that I purchased the disc at will no longer accept my return - they say I have to go through the manufaturer or contact GE's home office! I can't blame them - I have wiped out their inventory of this movie!

    Well, you can follow my instructions and delete the filter. Try again.

    And if that doesn't work, then I would complain to the manufacturer.

    Quality control simply is going down the tubes more frequently.

    It may be a bit annoying but IMHO you cannot just accept and keep what I am willing to bet is a bad disc. If they don't wish to replace the disc for another then, personally, I would demand my money back in full so that I could go elsewhere and purchase the disc since they, obviously, have nothing but a bad batch. If they argue that, and likely will, then I'd have no issues contacting their home office and explaining the situation. You are buying bad discs that they received from their supplier. The company should be very concerned because you are not the only person getting bad discs from their store. I'm pretty stubborn about getting what I paid for.

    I'd still follow Webslinger's advice as well, though. :)

    The Kingdom

    The Kingdom works fine with CloneDVD 2912 and AnyDVD 6303. I have copied my discs and it worked great

    That is of absolutely no help whatsoever to the original poster.
