    i notice the region is not set for your drive.
    maybe this could be causing the error you're having.

    I tried the disk in 2 dvd drives the first is region set but did not fix the problem.
    But i did turn off the AI scanner in anydvd and clone dvd now works fine with this dvd so there might be a bug in the scanner somewhere

    Did you use the default setting (Ver Fast)? If not, try it with that setting.

    1. Do step 10 from this link: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=321

    2. i. Right click the fox on your toolbar. Exit Anydvd
    ii. Click start. Right click on "My computer"--->select "properties".
    iii.Click on the 'Hardware' tab--->click the 'device manager' button.
    iv. Open the dvd/cdrom branch---> right click on your optical drive
    v. Click "properties".
    vi. You should have a region tab. From there you can select a region.
    vii. Select the region that matches the region on the disc
    viii. Start Anydvd
    ix. click the fox icon on your toolbar. Go to Video dvd--->settings
    x. Change the default to match the region on the disc
    xi. Click Ok

    I have set the region for my dvd drive and anydvd to be region 4 but it did not fix the issue when using the AI scanner, with AI disabled (old way) the disk works fine in clone dvd.
    Logs attached for both settings (nifty setting I might add), AI finds 2 more sector errors than the old way.

    Thank you. Hopefully James will take a look at this issue.

    from previous posts about lost season 2 the protection of region 1 and 4 are similar i think and i think james said he had access to R1 lost season 2 so he may be able to test his own dvds.

    thanks for the help, hope we have a solution soon

    I also had this problem that i can't copy Lost season 2 R2
    I tried the AnyDVD beta version and switched the option AI off.
    The copy went well but the movie is a little jumpy...the scene's are with little skips and hick ups.

    I hope that you can use my experience.

    AI on vs off

    Ok, so, I am having the same issue with my set of Lost 2. I hate taking the originals with me on trips after having had a cd folder with cd's and dvd's stolen out of my hotel room.

    With AI on and using Any DVD and Clone DVD 2 (both registered copies), the dvd's would only show the opening cuts. I couldn't even play it in my laptop dvd drive. But with AI off, the correct files showed up in Clone DVD and I could begin the copy process. I haven't yet tried watching it in my laptop with AI off. But, I will try it after I do my burn.

    Ok, so Clone DVD wouldn't burn it. Any DVD wouldn't burn it. DVD shrink 3.2 with Any DVD having AI off would rip it to hard drive. But I was unable to get Nero Burning tool to burn it. It always failed. Failed with Clone DVD, failed with Any DVD. Very stubborn.

    ANY IDEAS??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????

    That sounds more like a bad burn/bad blank media issue. Please ensure you're using quality blank media such as Taiyo Yuden Premium or Verbatim (not made in India).
