    am having problems with cloning a sports DVD called the Hunters' Harvest -Tips and Techniques.

    The problem that I am having is that it goes thru "Creating DVD files" then I get the unexpected error, Creation of DVD files was not successful. This happens at 83%.

    How do I correct this problem. Attached is the logfile.

    You have Sonic's Drag-To-Disc/Roxio's Directcd packet writing software on your system, which may cause conflicts with Anydvd, Clonedvd, and other software. If you require drag and drop functionality, use dvd-ram instead, which is more stable. You don't need to remove the entire Sonic/Roxio suite, but you do need to get rid of drag-to-disc and/or Directcd.

    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 "pwd_2k". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Select "Cdr4_xp". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Select "Cdralw2k". Click "Remove Selected Filter". Click "ok".
    iv) Reboot

    Keep in mind that the programs that installed those filters will no longer function properly.

    That line you bolded does not indicate the AI scanner is not set to default. When Anydvd creates a log file, the AI scanner is always forced on automatically (just for the duration of creating the log file). What the line you bolded indicates is that the second line is invalid: in fact, there is no structural protection on this disc.

    When the log file is created, 1) the A.I. scanner is forced on for the purposes of creating the log file (and it's only forced on while creating the log file). 2) Because the A.I. scanner is forced on, the A.I scanner believes there's structural protection (this is a condition in order for the A.I. scanner to be on; i.e., "Found & removed structural copy protection!"); and 3) the heuristic scan is more accurate--and what you should pay attention to. Therefore, this disc is (unlikely) to have structural protection.

    When you don't see anything about the heuristic scan mentioned in the Anydvd log file (which is not the case here), then it's quite likely the disc contains structural protection.

    And, remember, when you create a log file, the A.I. scanner is forced on while creating the log file.
