    It seems that this DVD does not decode properly. I get all kinds of artifacts when trying to play it, no matter if it's from the disc itself, or an ISO. Same problems in PowerDVD 17 or VLC 3. Not possible to enjoy any title, can't even select anything from the menu.

    Here's the logfile (attached), hope it will provide some useful info.

    I would:
    1) Get the newest version/beta (currently
    2) EXIT AnyDVD and set your drive region.
    If these don't help, submit another AnyDVD log.

    Please set your drive region code. As the message box told you.

    Thanks! Not sure which message box you're referring to, but that did the trick.

    I'm just wondering if the same decoding issue could happen with a region 1 disc, now that my region code is set to 2 (and I have spent one possible drive level change)?
    Or was my problem due to the fact that no region code was set at all, regardless of which one is set now?

    The one where anydvd told you or couldn't crack the CSS code. At the bottom there's a paragraph about the region code. The problem is owed that there was no region set. Region 0 does NOT equal region free.

    With a region 1 disc in a region 2 drive, anydvd will apply brute Force cracking due to different region but in most cases that should work just fine.

    There's a chance that fails, but it'll not be the same problem as an unset region.

    I see. Problem is, it did not tell me anything in this case.
    But I have one other disc where I indeed got this message, and I'll now go back and revisit this.

    That's not possible. With an unset region and CSS problems anydvd will ALWAYS show that message box with 4 possible causes (the unset region being one of them).

    But now that it's set, don't worry about it. Shouldn't happen again unless anydvd had problems cracking a disc that doesn't match the current set region.
